Our Mission / Objective

Our Mission…

is to empower young people by enhancing their human dignity and developing their capacity to transform their lives and communities.

 

Who We Are

Australian Marist Solidarity (AMS) is the agency for the aid and development work of the Marist Province of Australia throughout Asia and the Pacific Islands. AMS works with the people in this region on a combination of long-term and short-term development projects. These projects aim to develop, or support, locally sustained education opportunities for the young people in these regions.

In order to achieve this we facilitate partnerships with communities focussed on overseas aid, education and community development activities of the Australian Marist Brothers. To better fulfil this role, and to maintain the highest standard of transparency, AMS became a signatory organisation to the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) Code of Conduct in 2008.
Through the extensive network of Marist Schools around Australia, AMS is supported by current and former students and their parents, associates and the wider Marist Community. Through this network AMS presents a national forum for awareness and fundraising campaigns for the development work we support.

Our Services

In order to make our vision a reality AMS provides financial, capacity building and managerial support that empowers local people to take their own path to development. We therefore support programs that are initiated by, and conducted in partnership with, local communities.

Our focus is on sustainable growth through building a community’s capacity to deliver better quality education, to develop skills and to promote leadership. This means that our in-country partners develop projects around three key focuses:

  • Formal Education

Our support of primary, secondary and tertiary education programs seek to support and expand education systems that exist in communities across Asia and the Pacific. This work includes support for school facilities, classroom resources and school programs.

  • Non-Formal Education

In communities where there is a lack of educational opportunities and minimal access to formal education, AMS supports learning centres that offer young people tutoring and classes to provide key skills for further education, employment and self sufficiency.

  • Community Development

For young people in Asia and the Pacific, access to and effective participation in educational opportunities relies on maintaining good health and wellbeing. AMS supports a range of supplementary projects that focus on the development other programs that support educational opportunities.

Our Beneficiaries

We invest in partnerships with local people who show strong initiative and leadership in the development of new educational opportunities in their own communities. Our structures support these local partners in their management roles within their projects.

In locations where direct communication is sometimes difficult, particularly in the Pacific and in remote areas of Timor-Leste, Regional Managers have been established. These Managers are respected locals who receive ongoing formation through AMS in order to assist us in maintaining communication, monitoring progress and reporting on our projects.

Whether it be through Regional Managers or directly with Project Managers the AMS team, with support of the AMS Board, is committed to forging strong and supportive relationships with the people who are seeking real life changing solutions for their communities. These are the people who are developing the most appropriate paths to a better future for the young people of Asia and the Pacific.
