Established in 2004, Misean Cara is an international and Irish faith-based missionary development movement working with some of the most marginalised and vulnerable communities in developing countries. We are working with these communities to realise their human rights through the delivery of basic services in the areas of education, health, livelihoods and human rights. Our movement is comprised of 91 member organisations working in over 50 countries.

Misean Cara and our members work collectively and individually through the missionary approach to development. This framework is based on five values: respect, justice, commitment, compassion and integrity. Together, these establish the basis for the approach of missionaries to good development practice. Our members live and work long-term in communities in some of the world’s most impoverished and disadvantaged regions. Misean Cara provides a range of supports for their work in the areas of education, health, income generation and livelihoods, environmental sustainability and human rights.

Inspired by the centuries-old tradition of missionary work from Ireland, we access and distribute funding for high quality development initiatives, providing effective oversight through monitoring, evaluation and audit. We promote the enhancement of our members’ capacity to deliver significant results through mentorship, research, learning and development activities and quality support.

The holistic approach to eliminating poverty works through the implementation of locally appropriate programmes and projects that target the root causes of social inequalities. This work is undertaken in partnership with local communities and local, national and international agencies. Our results demonstrate that it makes a significant and sustained difference to the lives of the poorest.

Misean Cara prepares and publishes an Annual Report and Accounts (latest available is Year Ended 31 December 2018), both of which are available from our website www.miseancara.ie under the ‘About Us’ and ‘Media and Publications’ tabs.

Core activities of the company include project assessment and funding allocation and disbursement; monitoring and evaluation of projects overseas; capacity building; research; communications; fundraising; advocacy and all related grant administration.
