How to be at home is the Rotaract Club Quartu Sant’Elena Margine Rosso project aimed at the long-term inpatients of the Microcitemic transplant center, whose goal is to alleviate and make the hospital as light as possible.

Hospitalization involves tangible and not negligible problems on the patient and family, leading to the destruction of the domestic routine, to the change in family relationships, to the difficulty in combining different roles such as spouse, parent, worker, and an increase of tension and suffering expressed in anger, fear, uncertainty, frustration and guilt.

We want those who have the misfortune of being forced to stay in the sterile rooms of the hospital have the opportunity to get distracted, connect with the world, live in the absence of contamination but still full of stimuli coming from outside; from a world in which we want to make it return more integrated, connected and participatory than before. We want to allow the doctors and nurses of the Department to tell patients and family members: “you’ll see that you’ll feel a bit at home …

It is a project to which all the rotaract of Sardinia have joined. It consists of setting up a school inside the Nosy Be juvenile prison in Madagascar called “TUTTI A SCUOLA”, which concerns the area of ​​intervention Education (literacy).

In northern Madagascar, one of the poorest countries in the world, there is no prison for minors. Therefore, the boys and girls who are arrested are forced to stay in jail together with the adults. Detention is also provided if they commit a minor crime, such as participating in a fight. The imprisonment is immediate, may even spend six months awaiting the trial of conviction or release.

Thanks to the collaboration and the continuous contact between some Rotary clubs, Rotaract and Interact of northern Sardinia, with Prof. Manina Consiglio, founder and President of the non-profit organization “The children of Madagascar”, we have come to know that the Regional Inspector of Prisons in the north of Madagascar, with a letter from the Minister of Justice of Madagascar (which we will provide a copy of), authorized Prof. Manina Consiglio to rehabilitate an old building owned by the same Ministry to build the center for minors inmates.
A school and a library will be set up inside the prison for minors.

There are various courses and levels of education, with programs dictated by the Ministry of Education with Malagasy teachers. The school will host, in addition to the classrooms, the workshop for carpenters and that of computer science. All this will allow minors to continue to study, not lose the school year and acquire skills and professionalism, possibly spent in the future on the labor market. Our economic and professional contribution will allow the setting up of carpentry, computer science and classrooms’ furniture (desks, blackboards, bookshops, etc.)
