A better world for children



FMSI - Activity Report 2013

16/06/2014: General House

This “FMSI Annual Report – 2013” focuses on the leadership that our Foundation has been providing through its offices in Rome and Geneva. As you will note in these pages, we have set our sights on promoting innovative thinking and practical initiatives that will benefit children and young people, especially those most vulnerable and neglected, everywhere we serve. We are committed to developing a better world for youth, where their rights are respected and protected, where they can grow and mature in a safe and healthy environment, free from violence and fear, and where their future is bright and filled with opportunities. In striving to achieve this goal, the Foundation has been greatly blessed and encouraged by many donors and benefactors, whose generous support is enabling us to make a positive difference in the lives of countless children and young people around the world. To each one of you I say, “A million thanks!”

The plight of so many young people in this world is deeply troubling, and many individuals and organizations like our own are urging governments to dedicate themselves to building a more peaceful and just society. Many young people themselves are coming forward in inspiring ways to confront their political leaders, pleading with them to respect human rights.

We are excited to announce that we have signed memorandums of agreement to work in partnership with our Marist collaborators in Asia and Latin America. The FMSI Asia Branch is located in Bangkok, Thailand and FMSI Cono-Sur Branch in Santiago, Chili to work in partnership with our collaborators in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia, Chili and Peru. The objective of these initiatives is to promote our solidarity initiatives and advocate for the rights of children and young people in these regions. We are confident that this commitment to work together will greatly benefit the youth in that part of the world.

In conclusion I would like to take this opportunity to express my deepest thanks to the members of our Board for their guidance, and to the staff of FMSI for their commitment and dedicated work in helping to ensure the Foundation’s continued effectiveness and success.

Sincerely yours,

Bro. Michael De Waas
