In preparation for the 2017-2020 Strategic Plan an external consultant visited the Zambia-Malawi and Eastern Africa Provinces of the Jesuits to meet key personnel in these regions.
She also consulted with key members of the Irish Jesuit Province and our management and staff. Her findings showed the importance of continued support and identified our priorities for these three years.
We further informed our approach and commitments for this strategic plan with our international partners following the 36th General Congregation of the Society of Jesus which was held in October 2016.
Guided by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which is grounded in international human rights standards, our objectives and anticipated outcomes over the timeframe of the plan enable us to report comprehensively against globally recognised criteria.
