Interrogated by the reality we live in, the members of Fe y Alegría are meeting to dialogue about three topics of concern and worry to the Federation: Today’s frontiers / Fe y Alegría as a global movement responding to those frontiers / Global Citizenship. Every two years, directors and delegates representing the different countries where Fe y Alegría members are present gather in an International Congress, hosted by all members.The 2018 Congress “Fe y Alegría, a global movement. We educate on the Frontiers” is hosted by Entreculturas-Fe y Alegría España. Therefore, it will take place in Madrid between September 28th and October 1st, 2018.
Between September 29th and 30th, people from Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Europe representing more than 22 Fe y Alegría National Offices will meet in El Escorial, Madrid. They will reflect and dialogue about the Congress’ themes, in order to grow as a global movement responding to its challenges
