International Catholic Child Bureau (BICE) develops a strategic plan

05/02/2018: General House

During a meeting of the International Catholic Child’s Bureau (BICE) that took place in Paris, France, from Jan. 22 – 24, participants – which included FMSI – helped organize its future actions.

Together with other members from Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Italy and France, FMSI contributed to the preparation of the next strategic plan (2019 - 2022), which will be finalized at its next meeting in June.

Brother Alvaro Sepúlveda, who participated in the meeting on behalf of FMSI, affirmed that one of the lines of action in which BICE has stood out is in the fight against sexual abuse towards children.

“It has also supported the formation of resilience tutors in Marist projects that look after migrants (Lebanon and Spain),” Brother Alvaro told the general house communications office on Jan. 24.

“It is also important to highlight that BICE has favored the articulation among Catholic institutions in Latin America that want to promote human rights,” he continued. “Since 2009, national BICE tables or networks have been formed in Chile, Brazil and Argentina, in all of them the Marists have a strong commitment”.

FMSI is part of the BICE board of directors since 2017. It is an international network founded in France in 1948 that currently brings together almost 70 organizations from around the world committed to defending the dignity and rights of children.
