Become a change-maker! Your donation supports our missionaries in development work around the world.
Misean Cara is an Irish faith-based missionary movement working with some of the most marginalised and vulnerable communities in over 50 countries, promoting human rights through the delivery of basic services – in the areas of education, health, livelihoods and income generation, as well as community mobilisation.
Our members’ holistic approach to eliminating poverty, gets at the root causes of social inequality through locally appropriate responses. In partnership with local communities, and other international and national agencies, this work continues to make a difference to the lives of the poorest.
The connections with communities that our missionaries build over many years’ creates the social capital that lasts longer than the cycles of a humanitarian crises. When the media spotlight fades and moves on to the next attention-grabbing story, our members stay, rolling up their sleeves, helping rebuild lives and dreams.
Commitment to Standards in Fundraising Practice
Misean Cara is fully committed to achieving and adhering to the standards contained within the Charities Regulator of Ireland’s Guidelines for Charitable Organisations on Fundraising from the Public.
This body of codes provides Irish charities with good practice standards for fundraising and were developed after extensive consultation with industry experts and stakeholders including charities, non-profit organisations, legal and financial advisors, donors and academics.
These standards exist to:
- Improve fundraising practice
- Promote high levels of accountability and transparency by organisations fundraising from the public
- Provide clarity and assurances to donors and prospective donors about the organisations they support
We, Misean Cara, have considered the standards and believe we meet the guidelines they set out.
Our report on our fundraising activities is available in our most recent Annual Report which can be found here.
