Missio is an online tool that connects people to people to change the world, providing a variety of ways to show your support: give, share and act. Pope Francis launched Missio from the Pontifical Mission Societies in May 2013 as a way to disseminate news of the heroic work being done over the world. The latest version of Missio makes connecting with people and projects directly so much easier.
Missio is a mobile app. It is currently available for iOS and Android, and a web-based interface in under development.
The people leading Missio projects are engaged in a variety of holistic humanitarian activity, either through development projects that go to the heart of people’s basic needs – caring for abandoned children in Egypt, teaching a child to read and write in Uganda, and fighting to stop and prevent human trafficking in Thailand, as examples – while in every moment, they offer spiritual comfort and guidance to the suffering and those in need.
We have over 100 years experience of helping some of the most vulnerable communities around the world. Every year, the need outstrips our ability to respond adequately. Through Missio, we are opening up the entire process to direct participation by project leaders (applicants) and project supporter through a peer-to-peer digital app so you can make your own decision, all within a safe environment that prevents misrepresentation, theft or fraud.
On Missio, you can follow the real-world outcomes of a project. Project leaders will have the ability to share in words and images the ways your support has helped a child, a family and a community.
