About Mission Animation:

Mission Animation Office was set up in the year 2006, by the Missionary Congregation of the Evangelizing Sisters of Mary.
This Office is a response to the needs of many orphan/vulnerable children, women, people living with HIV/AIDs and caregivers facing a hopeless future in the neighboring areas that we work in.

The challenge was realized through the pastoral work of the Sisters, who conducted a needs assessment in 2005 in the Kware slums area afflicted by many numerous social illnesses and poor living standards. The HIV/AIDS pandemic has aggravated the challenges of Kware slum dwellers. The challenge faced in Kware slums includes - Malnutrition, ill health and lack of Education, Water and Sanitation, Sexual and gender based violence.
Through this Office, the Evangelizing Sisters of Mary are able to evangelize and promote integral human development. By initiating programms and activities for alleviating poverty and for fostering social justice and economic empowerment of the communities we serve, our attention is towards the holistic formation of a person. The overall goal of this programme is to promote the work of evangelization by witnessing God’s Love and Serving the needy of our time.
