Caritas Sierra Leone Launches Its 2022-2026 Strategic Plan With The Theme ‘A New Beginning For a Brighter Future’

Caritas Sierra Leone, established in 1981 on the basis to serve as the relief and development wing of the Catholic Church in Sierra Leone, has on the 22 April 2022 launched its Strategic Plan 2022-2026 with a focus on what it says “The six strategic pillars” which are: Institutional capacity strengthening, sustainability and availability; integral and human development; advocacy and influence to support the work of the organization; climate resilience, emergency and humanitarian crisis response; governance and development; and migration, human trafficking and vulnerability.

Caritas Sierra Leone has, through its development programs over the years helped thousands of Sierra Leonean women, children and people with disabilities. The organization has been directly and indirectly involved in activities related to social injustice, poverty reduction and relief aid, national disasters, economic inclusion and the rule of law in Sierra Leone. The organization is one of the few organizations to be in every region of the country with offices in almost all corners of the country.

The Strategic Plan 2022-2026 is to ensure that the organization work hand-in-hand with the Government of Sierra Leone and its donor and development partners to better serve the Catholic Church and the people of Sierra Leone within the organization’s social teaching and its management standards recommended and endorsed by the Holy Pope Francis. The Plan was, according to Caritas Sierra Leone, prepared in response to their increasing commitment to self-sustainability, viably and effectively responding to the needs of the vulnerable and marginalised Sierra Leonean, bringing justice to the poor and oppressed, and thus increasing individual liberty by reforming society through the teachings and principles of Jesus Christ, son of Mary.
