Visit to “Misean Cara”

08/07/2011: Ireland

In June, Br Mario Meuti and Angela Petenzi, director and project co-ordinator respectively of the Rome Bureau of FMSI, were in Dublin to take part in the annual meeting of “Misean Cara” (www.miseancara.ie), an Irish organization which, in collaboration with the Government agency for co-operation and development, “Irish Aid”, finances projects of co-operation of missionary organizations.

Br Mario and Angela attended the assembly at the invitation of Br John Hyland, the reference person for the Institute of the Marist Brothers for relations with “Misean Cara” and the presentation of projects. The meeting was very fruitful, seeing that it allowed us a better knowledge of the working method and the priorities of “Misean Cara”, and a personal meeting with the members of the board of direction.

The organization has financed various projects in South Africa and Malawi, in collaboration with FMSI and the Institute of the Marist Brothers. Recently it approved two new projects in which FMSI is also involved. The first is for the construction of a centre for teachers of the primary school in East Timor; the second is directed towards the formation of educators and social agents on children’s rights in Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, and the Solomon Islands.

“Misean Cara” is made up of 87 organizations which work in countries in the process of development. As well as financing projects, “Misean Cara” supports programs for strengthening the capabilities of organizations in developing countries and in Ireland, by means of courses of formation, support for local personnel and communication initiatives.
