Our Mission continues with hope and joy in 2016 – we pray that we can continue to serve those in most need at home and overseas – we do this by training and placing skilled people where they are needed in the world and where nobody else has the required skills set nearby. You hear from us quite often and we are always looking for people to go the Mission field but in 2015 we actually also began to recruit local people on to projects and we also have a Uganda sub office headed up by a Ugandan woman.
Our Mission partners (largely Irish religious sisters, brothers and sisters and their projects which they have set up over the decades) still require suitably qualified lay people to consider giving a year or two to Mission, to go and share their skills where they are needed most and train at least one person to take over when they depart.
At the moment we are looking for everything from Carpenters to Teacher Trainers to Marketing Specialists to Social Workers and all jobs are on our website.
Do you want to learn more about the possibility of overseas volunteering and/or training in Overseas Development & Mission?
