Who we are ....
Dokita was born in 1970 from the initiative of some friends of Brother Clemente Maino with the intent to continue his work of promoting human rights among the people of Cameroon...
and to extend this work to other people in the world. Dokita represents the response of lay volunteer work formed within the structures of the CFIC, as service and solidarity towards man of whatever race, condition and religion.
Dokita follows the same ideals of service and promotion of the fundamental rights of man and relies on skills and experience within the health care, pharmaceutical, social and educational facilities which have been built in the last century in Italy and abroad by the CFIC.
By virtue of a notary act dated 20 Sept. 1988 Dokita was constituted as a non profit Association to raise awareness and educate the public to the problems of the most disadvantaged and marginalized people and to work specifically in the field of international solidarity and cooperation. It is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) deemed qualified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (by Decree N ° 1991/128/001024/6 of 08.04.1991 and decree N ° 2005/337/005519/3, 18.11.2005) for the implementation of medium and short term programs in developing countries and for the selection, training and use of volunteers in community services, for on-site training of nationals of developing countries, for the implementation of activities regarding Information and Education for Development .
It is an Association of Volunteers enrolled in the Register of Voluntary Organizations of Lazio by Decree No 1482/95 of 19.06.1995. It was recognized as an ONLUS by Legislative Decree No 460, 4.12.1997. In January 1998, as a result of Legislative Decree No 460, 4.12.1997, is became an ONLUS by law.

Dokita has grown over the years. It now consists of many people - members, volunteers, friends and supporters – spread throughout Italy and elsewhere, who have included solidarity with their neighbor and, in particular, with the poorest and the neediest among the values and goals of their own lives.
