History

In 2015, the Congregation of the Daughters of Mary of the Assumption (F.M.A) entrusted the direction of PTM to a new lay council. The Congregation continues to provide financial assistance to the organization to facilitate this transition.

 The office reorganizes and moves to the Diocesan Centre of Edmundston in the spring of 2016 in premises offered free of charge. ​

 

In 2019, this world-class project celebrates its 40th anniversary still offering help to the most disadvantaged in our world

 

 PTM team continues in its efforts to recruit new donors

Parrainage Tiers Monde inc works closely with various sponsorship groups that we call communities. Our contact persons (our collaborators) are either lay people (social worker, doctor, school director) or nuns /religious.  They are volunteers who, on our behalf, ensure the direct link with the children in the countries where we are present. We appreciate their loyalty to PTM since its inception as well as the assistance provided to help us achieve our mission.
