Byelo is very much committed to young people, especially those who did not have the opportunity to study during the 20 years of civil war. Over the years we realized many projects of short professional training in construction, brick making, handicrafts, carpentry, blacksmith’s craft. This enabled many young people to find a job and to build up a future.
We paid also much attention to slum dwellers in the outskirts of big cities. Byelo supported programmes of formation and development of the ‘John Paul II Peace and Justice Centre’ under the direction of Sister Fernanda Pellizzer, which aim at the improvement of life conditions of those imprisoned in urban slums.
