Our Vision is to offer a friendship where persons are looked at and embraced for their infinite value and they are not reduced to their sickness or limitations.
Meeting Point International, in adherence to the social teachings of the Catholic Church, aims at supporting the most disadvantaged persons and communities of Uganda, with a particular focus on Women and Children, in their struggle for better life and development having as priorities to assist the suffering victims of HIV/AIDS, to promote education at all levels and to commit in poverty alleviation.
MPI is to offer friendship, in which people are not reduced to their problems or sickness but instead are looked at and embraced for their infinite dignity.
Our Approach – Letter from Rose
“The greatest need of a human being is the need for belonging, which gives stability and certainty in all aspects of life. Meeting Point International has discovered that with a belonging you can approach others while taking into account their reality and you can be able to truly embrace him/her whichever are the differences that separate you. MPI creates simple environments where each person can find it easier to belong and experience love.
The value of the person is only possible when paying attention to something greater. The support we give is an instrument to tell these people that they have a value and that they are responsible for it. MPI did not invent this method but even scientific studies have proved this method of ours works. Depriving a person of love and belonging causes physical and functional harm.
Having this in mind, my work in MPI is to create or try to create original structures of the values and meaning where each one can develop and discover himself. MPI becomes a place where each can be himself, where an individual can express himself freely and live a constant comparison with his own humanity. The person who belongs becomes protagonist because he receives a face, and receives a consciousness that unites him with the reality, he becomes the lord of the reality not because he posses it himself, but because he discovers the belonging to someone else. Belonging to a design that is not yours, that is to say, belonging to somebody else, you become free.”
