About the Economy of Communion
The Economy of Communion was started in 1991 by Chiara Lubich, founder of the Focolare Movement, after she visited the favelas in Sao Paulo, Brazil. She was touched by the ardent desire of many to have a more effective impact in addressing the social problems and imbalanced economic of their country.
The EoC is now made up of more than 800 businesses around the world who follows EoC guidelines, including profit sharing to help those in need and to foster structures and training programs that promote a culture of giving.
