The Maltese National Federation of Past Pupils and Friends of Don Bosco is launching a new project Camino Maltese which aims at creating walking-journeys around Malta and Gozo marking main religious and cultural sites guided by an app which will provide a nonformal educational platform for educators, young people, and visitors to the Maltese Islands. The project aims at forming a group of volunteers to work on research, planning the routes for the walking-journey, developing an app, and testing it. This app will be used by people who wish to follow an adventurous pilgrimage which will help them to enjoy the outdoors, learn about our religious and cultural heritage, reflect on their inner journey, and take up a challenge. This app will also promote cultural faith tourism and would be another attraction for people who visit our islands as well as residents who wish to learn more about our history, culture, natural environment, personal development, and spirituality.
We are looking to employ a Project Manager on a part time basis to help us in the technical details of the development of the app.
This project has been funded through the Voluntary Organisations Project Scheme managed by the Malta Council for the Voluntary Sector on behalf of Parliamentary Secretary for Sports, Recreation and Voluntary Organisations within the Ministry for Inclusion and Social Wellbeing.
