Nomadelfia wants to live the work as an act of love, free and disinterested; wants to show that it is possible to live a life based on gratuitousness.
For this reason, the Nomadelfi work within the community without asking for compensation in return. In no family are paid for cooking, repairing a sink or treating children: because it is free work, done for love.
In doing so, one lives an integral fraternity, in which differences are eliminated.
At Nomadelfia, we are all available to do whatever work is necessary: every job is useful for life and therefore has its dignityto.
Heavy or repetitive jobs are carried out in turn, or together by the entire population. We call them "mass jobs".
