About Us

HISTORY

 

Parrainage Tiers Monde was officially launched in early 1979 by Sr. Androla St-Onge, f.m.a., then in charge of the Missionary Office of the Diocese of Edmundston, NB. Its goal was to highlight the International Year of the Child in the Third World.

In 1985, the International Year of Youth, Parrainage Tiers Monde became a separate agency from the Missionary Office and was therefore recognized as a charitable organization under the name of "Parrainage Tiers Monde Inc.’’

In 2019, this international project celebrates its 40th anniversary by still offering help to the most disadvantaged children of our world.
