Sisters for the Environment​

On the eve of COP27 in Egypt, the Global Solidarity Fund supported the International Union of Superiors General (UISG) in launching a new statement on the environment, drawing on Pope Francis’s Laudato Si’ letter to call on the global community for an integral approach to the ecology crisis. The event was held at the UISG headquarters in Rome and online on 3 November, with participation from the diplomatic, civil society and Church communities demonstrating the spirit of partnership needed to save our common home.

We foster innovative collaboration, bringing together key influencers in development and leaders across different sectors of society to advance holistic, inclusive, and sustainable human development for all.

We are inspired by the moral leadership of Pope Francis and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to build a better world, based on solidarity, charity, and equality.

Our Approach

We are pursuing three strategies:

Connect Catholic networks with partners to drive systemic change for the most vulnerable, starting with migrants, especially women and children.

Create partnerships and opportunities that further empower Catholic sisters’ leadership to shape development efforts for those in need.

Build alliances and tell the story of the Catholic Church's development contribution, including supporting its efforts to respond to COVID-19 and build a better world in its aftermath.

Our Partnerships

Together, we are unlocking new partnerships and innovation for holistic, inclusive, and sustainable human development for all.

Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals requires all sectors of society to contribute their unique strengths. Catalyzing partnerships that include the private sector, philanthropies, international organizations, governments, Catholic communities, and men and women in religious life, the Global Solidarity Fund is fostering synergies and systemic connections to drive action for the most vulnerable.
