UNIV is an international gathering of university students, which the Institute for University Cooperation (ICU) has sponsored in Rome since 1968. Each year, several thousand students spend Holy Week in Rome, profiting from the cultural and historical riches that the Eternal City has to offer. Throughout the week, ICU provides students with various cultural encounters, conferences, roundtables, showrooms and concerts. All of these activities are occasions to delve more deeply into important matters relevant to the university, highlighting particularly the spirit of service towards those who are most in need.
Where does Afara come in?
Each year, there is a central topic/relevant matter that makes the UNIV theme for the year. Each country breaks down this topic amongst university students into variety of smaller topics in a bid to highlight particularly the spirit of service towards those who are most in need.
Afara is a centre dedicated to forming young women. These formative activities are targeted towards secondary and university students. Through Afara, university students also get to participate in Univ.
