Economy of Communion
Economy of Communion is a new way of understanding the economy that combines the needs of efficiency and profitability, with the goal of making a meeting place in economic, investment, growth between all involved. It is a project launched by Chiara Lubich, founder of the Focolari Movement, in 1991 in Brazil to help bridge the gap between rich and poor which involves companies from five continents.
Entrepreneurs with their businesses freely participating in the project, they decide to put in communion the company’s profits according to three goals and with equal care:
- helping people in difficulty, creating new jobs and meeting the basic needs, beginning with those who share the spirit of the project;
- spread the “culture of giving” (and love) without which it is possible to realize an Economy of Communion;
- develop the company, which must remain effective even if open to the gift.

- combines efficiency and solidarity;
- relying on the power of the culture of giving to change the behavior of the economy;
- does not consider the poor mainly as a problem, but as a valuable resource.
