Associate member of Vivat International
The Religious of the Assumption have been engaged with Vivat International through the International JPIC Secretariat LSA/RA.
In 2012 as a congregation we became an Associate Member. This enables us to co-operated with the other congregations, especially,round issues of poverty and human rights, environment, women, migration and also indigenous people and HIV/Aids.
Some issues are present in many countries, for instance mining. Experiences can then be brought together and presented to the UN. There are Vivat regional offices in New York and Geneva.
