“ … Our duty as Christians is … to accomplish by love, what justice alone cannot do”
Blessed Frederic Ozanam
SSVP ultimate goal is to work for social justice, thus promoting rights, responsibilities and development of all people. In our support to the deprived or to the populations affected by wars, economic crises or natural disasters, we are committed to respecting their dignity. That is why we always seek to create new development activities that provide job opportunities and improve livelihood security, especially in rural regions. Such activities involve arts and crafts, agriculture and farm development, replanting programs, self-help projects, micro-project funding, etc.
Hence, their level of dignity, integrity and self-respect, enables them to lead a better and meaningful life, for them and their family.
