Live a Dream, Make a Change
Strawberry Fields Onlus originated from the minds, but especially from the hearts, of Maria Vittoria Marchiorello, Francesca Piccini and Diva Maddalena Polegato. All three of them started off as volunteers in Africa, specifically in Addis Abeba (Ethiopia). They've continued to support the religious order of the Brothers of La Salle and have given concrete support to Brother Kassu Fantaye, the Ethiopian brother who, over the years, has built the school of St. John Baptist de La Salle in the outskirts of Addis Abeba.
Schools in Ethiopia are exclusively private, thus excluding the hundreds of children in precarious economic situations from receiving a proper education in order to make a better future for themselves. Instead, the St. John Baptist de La Salle School gives children from the families in the most need the opportunity to go to school, guaranteeing them a level of instruction certified both nationally and internationally, thanks to the yearly exams the students have to take.
In order to make this possible, the religious order of La Salle is continuously seeking funds and volunteers to help them guarantee what to them is the foundation of society: instruction and scholastic education, seen as the only true form of freedom.
