Ambassadors of a Worldwide Brotherhood
In 2008, the youth movement “Ambassadors of a Worldwide Brotherhood” (Ambassadors WWB) was started by the brothers. The foundation for this was laid in the run-up to the World Youth Days of 2008. The goal of the WWB is to bring together young people who, starting from their own culture, want to engage themselves for the global movement of mercy and brotherhood. Within the WWB, these young people orientate themselves on the spirituality of the congregation.
The first activity was an international meeting in Tomohon (Indonesia) with subsequent participation in the World Youth Days (WYD) in Sydney in 2008. The success of this activity was given a follow-up: participation in the WYD in Madrid in 2011, the WYD in Rio 2013, and in 2016 the WYD in Krakow. Meanwhile, the movement has grown into an international group of young people who are also actively working in their own country, in their daily lives and in their desire to work towards a world of mercy and brotherhood. Within the WWB groups of young people are actively involved in seven countries: the Netherlands, Kenya, Namibia, Brazil, Indonesia, Tanzania and Timor Leste.
