Students of Andiamo Education Institutions will go for Easter Holidays, knowing that they have a big Easter gift.

The building of the hostel has been made possible with the help from an association called Seconda Linea Missionaria from Ostia in Rome.
Marandimo Building Contractors and Civil Engineering under the supervision of Franco Fiorina are working tirelessly to make sure that they finish in time.
Fr. Mario Pacifici, the founding trustee of Andiamo Youth Cooperative Trust has asked students from Andiamo Education Institutions to love prayer.
Fr. Mario:We expect you to be examples
Speaking during the Sunday Mass that is celebrated every Sunday in the AEI Cafeteria, Fr. Mario bemoaned the tendency of some students who are either late for mass or chose to stay in the hostels not attending mass altogether.
He also stressed on the need for management to see that all the students have time to pray in their respective denominations.
“You must make sure that these students have time to pray,” advised Fr. Mario.
This follows another chat he had with some students who are on scholarship on Friday 2 March 2012.
Fr. Mario asked the students to be exemplary, as they should consider themselves ‘lucky’ for getting the sponsorship.
“We expect you to be examples to other students in our campus, as you should be aware of the privilege you have for being sponsored,” Fr Mario said this after receiving reports that the behaviour of some supported students leaves a lot to be desired.
He asked them not to miss the opportunity ‘given with sacrifice’ by Italian friends of Andiamo, but to use the scholarship for their future and that of the nation.
During the 30 minute meeting, the founding trustee shared with the students two readings from the Bible from II Peter 1:10 and I Thessalonians 2:19.
About thirty-one students from different denominations get sponsorship from Italy through Andiamo’s twin Italian association “Orizzonte Malawi Onlus”. Through this many students who could not afford to get Secondary Education are able to do so.
