US/Canada – World Mission Sunday campaign: Children’s mission focused on children in Papua Nuova Guinea
MONTREAL (Agenzia Fides) – More than 130 children in Papua New Guinea will benefit as part of “Projet-Partage 2022-2023” of the French-speaking Canadian Children’s Mission, also known as “Mond’me”.

“In this centre, religious women are not only involved in school building, but also provide youth with tools that will allow them to develop fully to guide them to know and respect their rights, a In a country where, unfortunately, the rights of children are often overlooked,” reads a communication on the project available to Fides. “Since many of these children are from remote areas, the sisters also cover basic needs like food and school supplies.”
“Children’s rights is a topic that interests young people and is discussed frequently in our schools in Canada,” says Ginette Cté, coordinator of Mond’Ami. What we are proposing this year will resonate in both the pastoral and educational sectors”.
