A TOS group meeting in Italy, talking strategy .. setting an example
The Theosophical Order of Service in Italy works in close cooperation with the Italian Theosophical Society, which appreciates and supports its endeavors. Both organizations believe that no Theosophical path is complete without Service to Humankind, in the spirit of Universal Brotherhood.
The main activities carried out by the TOS in Italy are as follows:
• Meditation for world peace
• Healing League
• World Mother Ceremony
• Sponsoring education for children in need
• Caring for the ill and elderly
• Promotion of vegetarian ethics
• Spreading theosophical ideas
• Helping camps of nomadic Roma/Sinti
The Italian TOS provides financial support for several educational projects, such as Qandeel Home Schools in Karachi (Pakistan), Golden Link College in the Philippines, the Olcott School and Social Welfare Centre in Adyar (Chennai), the House of Children in Muttom (India), which was built with the help of donations from the TOS, and the Little Flower Convent in Chennai. The Italian TOS also backs a number of schemes involving international emergencies, such as a project to help Syrian refugees by supporting a pediatric clinic in the Bab Al Salam camp (20 km from Aleppo, Syria), the “Bread” project (distributing bread to widows in difficulty in Aleppo, Syria) and the “Coal” project (supplying coal in January, February and March to 30 families with disability issues) in the Turkish city of Kilis, near the border with Syria.
In addition, members of the TOS in Italy support local charities and help to raise funds for a range of associated projects by making products for charity bazaars.
