Jerusalem (Social work and formation)

In July, a social development project was organized by Biranta Study Center in Jerusalem and by the Aliseda Association of Madrid. The project was carried out by university students from those two cities and took place simultaneously in three sites: a home for the aged, a hospital, and a Braille library for the blind. The work of the participants consisted of care for the fifty aged people in the home, repair work in the hospital, and remodeling and painting at the library.

Also, during the first months of the 1999-2000 academic year, Biranta began a course of family orientation and education of children which was attended by mothers of young families in the neighborhood. A course in fundamental questions of philosophy entitled Dare to Know, aimed at university women, was also organized. This initiative had as its objective to spread the teachings of the Encyclical Fides et Ratio among both Christians and non-Christians.
