What is Rondine?
What is the World House?
The project that gave rise and inspiration to Rondine is the World House: since 1998, it has hosted young people who come from countries where, whether currently or recently, conflict has degenerated into violent forms. They accept to live with their own “enemy”, in order to learn how to face their conflict and turn it into an opportunity for change.
The World House program lasts two years: during this period, participants can experiment innovation through conviviality, daily activities, non formal and formal education.
At the end of the two-year period, the youth of the World House have the tools to promote action and develop concrete social, political and economic projects in their own countries and to be leaders in contexts characterized by transformation, elevated complexity, and high conflict.
Currently, the World House hosts thirty students from twenty-five different countries in Europe, Africa, America and the Middle East.
World House: the main focuses
It is a reciprocal trial period: the World House candidate can assess if Rondine meets his/her expectations, thanks to meetings with the educational staff and the direct experience of cohabitation with the other participants.
At the same time, the staff verifies if the participant’s characteristics meet the required profile to commit to the Rondine program.
