A special wish to Sr MariaGrazia for her 50 years of religious life

On 5 August we celebrate Sr MariaGrazia’s 50 years of religious life as Daughter of Mary our Help of Christians (Salesian Sister of Don Bosco). Sr MariaGrazia is Director of the IIMA Human Rights Office since 2007 and she founded the VIDES International in 1987.
Her immense experience in VIDES International allowed her to have a deep knowledge of the Institute that at present she proudly represents in Geneva.
During her VIDES International experience she involved young volunteers in the salesian project encouraging them to open their heart and to adopt the ideals of justice and peace.
At present, in Geneva she is lead by the same enthusiasm and passion in order to touch the Governmental representatives’ hearts. She persistency fights to promote children’ rights and, in particular, to guarantee the right to education for all.
