SNJM Solidarity Projects
In 2013, the Sisters of the Holy Names created the SNJM Solidarity Projects to respond more effectively to the needs of vulnerable people. These projects, part of the SNJM's long tradition of service, have two objectives besides aiding people who are vulnerable:
- To offer volunteers the opportunity to enhance their personal and professional development through providing humanitarian support and assistance.
- To provide support from volunteers for SNJM projects.
We strive to build a just world by promoting the following values:
- Justice : Seek fairness and equity, recognizing there is no peace without justice.
- Interdependence: Work in solidarity and collaboration.
- Respect: Recognise differences and consider the points of view and values of other cultures without prejudice.
- Openness: Share in dialogue, listen with empathy and respect.
We seek applicants:
SNJM Solidarity Projects welcome people of all ages and horizons. These volunteers share our values and desire to share their expertise. They also want to learn new skills that will help them in their studies, career or life.
- The volunteers we look for are interested in education as an instrument of social justice in areas such as social work, teaching, and other forms of empowerment.
- Each service project has its own specific needs and the job description clearly describes these.
