As SSHJM Mission Project Coordinator, Kieran Cunningham manages the Congregation’s Mission Project Office. Many of our overseas mission projects require institutional donor funding in order to provide meaningful services and opportunities for development. Kieran creates awareness of such donor funding opportunities, along with good development practice and initiates capacity building initiatives for project personnel. Kieran also mentors and supports SSHJM members and project personnel in preparing project proposals and reports and to ensure they are aware of the strict conditions required by donors.
Kieran evaluates all proposed projects to make sure they are in accord with the Charism of the Congregation, liaises between the Congregation and development/funding agencies and other groups and collaborates with them with regard to funding, capacity building and development for our overseas missions.
