FIDESCO, CATHOLIC INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY NGO
Fidesco takes part in development projects initiated and run by partners from the Churches of the southern countries, in particular by providing financial support and by sending international solidarity volunteers on long-term missions in the field to put their skills and faith at the service of those in need.
In Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe, many partners call on Fidesco to strengthen and sustain local projects. Our partners – dioceses, parishes, congregations, Catholic foundations – need skills that they cannot find locally. Fidesco works alongside them by developing missions to serve the poorest and the development of the countries to which the volunteers are sent.
Nearly 2,000 volunteers have already experienced service, a founding experience from a human, spiritual and professional point of view. They have gone out to meet other people in all their differences, and have forged solid links with them by living alongside them and helping the smallest and most vulnerable.
Strengthened by our 40 years of mission, we continue to build a culture of culture of fraternity by adopting a multidirectional missionary approach adapted to each state of life.

what are you doing next year?
Every year, around a hundred volunteers join our partners in the field to work and live with the poor. Would you like to leave for Asia, Africa or Latin America to put your skills and faith to good use?
Leave your habits behind and let yourself be transformed by the adventure of a mission. Leaving for 1 or 2 years as a Catholic volunteer means daring a project that’s a little crazy, but so rich in meaning!
