During the farewell ceremony, certificates and gifts were presented to the Italian youth animators, which certify their work, love for our youths here in the Catholic Diocese of Gizo.  

They are here to bring their charism of Don Bosco and keep it alive in our youths here in the diocese of Gizo. It is an ongoing program of the diocese of Gizo, which continues to receive youth animators from Italy to help uplift youth enthusiasm in serving other youths and getting them involved and committed to being animators of children in their parishes.

Their visit aims mainly to involve (look after and protect) our children in outdoor activities like games, and other dynamic initiatives. It is a visible exchange of cultural values and friendship in which both youth groups learn from each other.
