Christmas to Anteus
Ventidue In the amazing location of Pozzuoli two dear friends, Mario and Antonella hosted us in their restaurant, in an intimate and elegant place facing the sea of Baia, named as the known giant, son of Poseidon. A perfect location to wish to all our friends who support our projects a merry Christmas. Astonished by the Neapolitan traditional cuisine, enchanted by our President to the sound of music, we all spent a magic and romantic night. Yetu Africa has grown up thanks to the sensitivity and infinite generosity of our friends that allow us to realize small things, but to us they are gigantic.

A beautiful day, full of joy that only children are able to spread. Thanks to Teresa, which is always sensitive to altruism, has sown a seed in the hearts of these little children. All their questions and the Christmas poems, especially the one dedicated to children of Chokocho, have given us a joy and incredible strength.

Together to give a smile
Grazie Due to the high awareness and cultural and scientific value of our friend Nello Ingenito, professor of pediatric dentistry at the University Federico II of Naples, over 200 dentists, not only from Campania came together for a refresher course in dental trauma. The whole registration fee has been donated to Yetu Africa for the realization of a medical-surgical, and in the future also dental, in Chokocho village. In March 2015 Nello was with us and saw with his eyes how poor was health care, especially for children and adolescents. He got shocked. As soon as he came back, he launched himself into the project with enthusiasm and its success has gone beyond expectations. It stunned us all.

A charity event in support of Africa to Nemea
In the charming garden of the large multi-purpose structure of the first Energy Village of Campania, Thursday, July 16 at 20.00, the "Nemea Energy Village" of Cardito held a charity event dedicated to food tasting and good music.
The experience of well-being offered by Nemea Energy Village is intertwined with the need for redemption of the people who are struggling to build their own future: the proceeds from the evening to support projects carried out by the voluntary association "YetuAfrica" for Chokocho fishing village south of the island of Pemba. A place where people live in unpleasant and inhumane, in dilapidated huts and sanitation very serious deficiencies.
In this regard, the need to build a dispensary that can serve as first aid and general medical practice for the free distribution of medicines.
The purpose beneficial joins a playful moment. Whoever receives the invitation will have the pleasure to enjoy special recipes for slow food and enjoy the musical talents of two exceptional groups "DualDuo" and "The Swing Tree".
Take care of your well-being also means taking care of those who are in trouble!

Art and passion in the dough...
Rosario Arprea's pizza is made by a mixture of these ingredients and some more: an artisan with a long career turning good things in love. His unique dough rises slowly as the old recipes says and as the only possible way to prepare a healthy, delicious and sublime pizza; without excluding It's authentic specialty, The "Saltimbocca", of which he is the inventor, and the "Grisoni".
A lot of similarities between Rosario and Yetu Africa (one of them is being In love with Africa), which got them closer to each other and made them share some views and some passions, as result, they decided to organize an exclusive party to support CHOKOCHO's village's projects which took place in a Pizzeria/Ristorante named 'al Vigneto D'Oro' in Naples, where Rosario delighted 100 participants with delicious gastronomic meals made with tradition and quality.
