Are you proud of your conference’s work to alleviate poverty and homelessness in your community? Please share details of these projects with Renato Lima de Oliveira, International President of the Society of St Vincent de Paul.
Brother Renato has been invited to give a keynote lecture at the De Paul Vincentian University of Chicago in February 2020. He will speak on “Systemic Change” within SSVP, and the benefits to those we help. In particular, he is looking for examples from all around the world, on how SSVP is going beyond simple assistance to introduce solutions aimed at breaking the cycle of poverty.
If you have examples of successful initiatives to share, please send details to Brother Renato. Examples can include projects that have been successfully carried out or are still in progress, as well as those run in collaboration with other branches of the Vincentian family. Please send photographs and summaries of your projects to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 December 2019.
