The Community of Sant’Egidio was founded in Rome in 1968

It is known all over the world for its social and religious commitment work for peace and dialogue, campaigns for rights, such as health in Africa and the abolition of death penalty.

Today Sant’Egidio is present in more than 70 countries with over 60,000 members and a wider circle of sympathizers and friends who actively collaborate in various initiatives. It was founded in 1968 by the historian Andrea Riccardi when he was still at secondary high school. Its president is currently Marco Impagliazzo, professor of contemporary history.

In the spirit of the Second Vatican Council and open to the contribution of anyone who intends to work for peace and defend the weakest, the Community gathers people of all ages and social backgrounds, who feel commitment to others is a priority, first and foremost to the poor.

The characteristic that distinguishes it is the gratuity: no one is paid for the service they perform as a volunteer and all the initiatives are carried out with the contribution of those who intend to support them.
