Gratitude Report 2018

Please enjoy the stories of change that your generosity has made possible in 2018. During the year Jesuit Mission has worked with 22 partners on the ground in 14 countries. Our partners effect change across the spheres of health and basic rights, education, leadership and capacity training, and pastoral care.

These programs break cycles of poverty through agricultural, livelihood and vocational training. They protect the well-being of communities by providing medical care, schools, food, income generating projects and improved access to clean water and toilets.

They provide refugees, asylum seekers and other vulnerable individuals with pastoral care, social inclusion, education and advocacy.

"I am so grateful to you for joining us in serving our most vulnerable sisters and brothers living in the 'margins' of our world. Your kindness will continue to effect change for years into the future."

- Helen Forde, CEO 


Gratitude Report 2017

Gratitude Report cover

Throughout 2017, the generosity of our Australian Jesuit Mission community has enabled our Jesuit partners to reach some of the world’s most disenfranchised people.

Through these programs, we have been able to help them to build the skills, capacity and resilience needed to create and sustain lives free from poverty and injustice.

Our 2017 Gratitude Report highlights the good news stories of what we have been able to achieve by working together to support vulnerable people living in the global margins. 

We offer our heartfelt gratitude to all who walked with us throughout 2017. Thank you for your generosity and commitment to the poor and living out a faith that creates change.

"I am deeply grateful for the friendship and companionship of our faithful, generous and committed co-missionaries - our volunteers, committees, schools, parishes, community groups and supporters like you - who demonstrate your lobe for the poor, not with words but through deeds."
- Helen Forde, CEO  READ NOW
