Scalabrini Project “Seafarers and fishers worldwide: a vulnerable population to be supported and empowered in five Scalabrini Seafarer Centers”
The Scalabrinis seafearers and fishers centers seeks to protect and empower seafarers, fishers and their families left behind in their countries of origin through the Scalabrini Centers of the Apostleship of the Sea, the Stella Maris in Kaohsiung and Taipei (Taiwan), Cape Town (South Africa), Montevideo (Uruguay) and Manila (Philippines).
The Centers provide several services to men and women in harbour cities such as: board and lodging, laundry area, training and educational programs, monitoring employment applications, advocacy and legal support, communication facilities (free Wi-Fi, computers, TV, SIM cards), recreation facilities, ship visits, hospital visits, prison visits, family visits, lending libraries, shopping etc.
It is intended to directly impact at least 155,000 seafarers, fishers, and their families in the five Centers.Help us support this project
