Welcome Association “Jesuiten Etxea” in Durango (Vizcaya) celebrates 10 years.

The Jesuits have been in Durango for about 137 years. In recent years, both the school and the Jesuit Community Project have responded to changing contexts. Certainly, these decades have kept both projects in full vitality and dynamism, always seeking to respond with new ways to the problems of each moment.

The Jesuit community of Durango was aware of the growing situation of refugees and migrants: the Church cannot ignore human injustice and must be prophetic, denouncing and trying to transform the world into a more just place.

That is why the community decided to start in 2007 the project of welcoming and integrating migrant people. The main objective has been to offer a year of coexistence, training, social incorporation and support for immigrants, men or women.

"The people who have come to “Jesuiten Etxea” during these 10 years have done it very hard but they have seen that it is possible to have a home on the other side of the barbed wire. Most of the Jesuits are 80 years old but they still think about how to restructure the community in the coming years. They are happy, because in these 10 years their home has become the home of 49 Africans who have come to stay in their hearts, they have been loved as they have loved. Their life has enriched each other. "
