Our Association


we are doing?

Scintille is a lay association and opened to everybody. We operate mainly in Namibia.


Like sparks, our interventions, our activities, our plans must be small, incisive, fast and precious. The framework of our activities:
– the school
– the education, especially oriented to women
– concrete, material, immediate aids: small, simple but now.


In deep respect of the existing traditions.
Enhancing the traditions and not distorting them.
Together with local communities and other associations with the same philosophy of Scintille.
Always considering the human dignity as the primary value.


We address to the children, the women, to real poor, to those that do not have nothing to lose, those who live the present and that cannot hope in the future because they do not know if they will have future.


– We propose a new way of cooperation. “THEY” at the centre of everything.
– First we listen then we collaborate: stop to the typical presumption of having every time something to teach.
– We “give” but “we receive equally”. We must be aware of this.
– Stop to the professionals of the cooperation: too much often they form a chaste closed in its own world, too much often everything is transformed in pure charity, without giving real perspectives.
