Żgħażagħ Ħaddiema Nsara

Mission

ŻĦN (Żgħażagħ Ħaddiema Nsara) is a movement of lay workers that aim to witness Christ among their fellow workers and to work together with the Church's hierarchy. It’s a movement of young workers who act to achieve a life of freedom that better suits their human dignity as Christ wills it both for themselves and their friends. By young workers, the movement implies young men and women who work for a salary or wage, or who work with their family. This definition also incorporates young people who are students or apprentices, as well as young people who are unemployed.

 

History

The movement started in 1945 by the late Fr. Michael Galea SJ. At the time, it was organized as a small group, and the first members were workers at HM Admiralty Dockyard. Meetings were held at the Jesuits’ Sarria House in Floriana. Till the mid 1950s all chaplains were Jesuits fathers. By the late 50s Rev Fr. Renato Cirrillo, Professor of Economics at the University of Malta was appointed the first Diocesan National Chaplain.

Strummin'

Strummin' Home
Strummin' Home is an annual project of the YCW Malta aimed at promoting young people's talents whilst working for a good cause. This project is in line with the YCW's mission to train young workers to give a meaning to their lives and to find responsible and just solutions to issues they face, at local, national and international levels. Throughout the nine years in which the concerts were held, the funds collected from the Strummin' Home concerts were donated to several charities such as Suret il-Bniedem Foundation, St Joseph Home, Puttinu Cares, Richmond Foundation and the Equal Partners Foundation.
The first edition of the concert was held in 2002 in Rabat. The idea was to have a concert with a choir of guitarists strumming to popular songs whilst raising funds for a good cause. Since the first concert, the guitarists remained the basic element of the concert, however, more realistic expectations were set and each year, the concert provides ZHN with experiences to learn from for the following year and opportunities to promote young people's talents and potential. From the second edition onwards Strummin' Home moved to Sir Temi Zammit Hall at the University of Malta except for the 4th edition Strummin' 4 Peace which was an open air concert in the Summer of 2005. One other thing that remained constant is the element of fun in each concert. Whilst the concerts aim to present to the audience a well-prepared and professional event, every effort is made to ensure that the participants have fun while preparing for it.
Usually concerts are held around October or November. Each year the guitarists who had participated in the previous events are invited to re-join the team, but every year new guitarists, singers, band members and collaborators are very welcome. What keeps us all going is basically both a love for music and a desire to do something which others benefit from. At the Young Christian Workers we believe in the potential of every young person. Each one of us has so much to offer given the opportunity. And that is what we try to do through Strummin' Home - offer space for this potential to develop in a way that makes a difference, both in the lives of the young people involved and also in society.
