The Loreto network is proud of a tradition that empowers millions of girls through the transformative impact of education for more than 400 years. It is important to acknowledge that the human rights of girls and women continue to be violated and ignored in many parts of the world. The Loreto Sisters support the human rights of all people and work to promote justice for girls and women in increasingly diverse ministries: combatting forced marriage, eliminating female genital mutilation, addressing the complexity of human trafficking, education, healthcare and self-help projects aimed at encouraging women to take their place in their cultural contexts with dignity and purpose. All MWIA projectsaim to create just and sustainable change with women, children and communities by providing resources to develop capacity, resilience and hope. Loreto schools mark International Women’s Dayeach year with creativity and passion and International Day of the Girl is a celebration of the potential of girls ‘to do much’ and a reminder that many girls in our world do not have access to the same opportunities. Loreto women are representative in every professional field, increasingly in Australian political life and in the service of all humanity.
