Pastoral and Volunteering

Pastoral

We welcome the Universidad San Pablo CEU community to our Pastoral website.  
We want you to know all the services we provide and tell you that our door is always open.  
It is open to celebrate the daily Eucharist and the sacrament of Reconciliation when necessary... open to hold forums, talks, seminars, conferences and meetings, seeking dialogue between Faith and Culture. It is also open for trips and pilgrimages, and to spread God´s Good News through social media.  
An open door, that will allow us to accompany you on your journey of sharing and faith in Jesus. 


We also want to be a helping hand that is always ready to assist anyone who needs it. The pastoral offices in all Schools of San Pablo CEU are always waiting for your visit, because these can also be home. The chaplain, the pastoral team and the volunteers, are your family at Universidad CEU San Pablo, come visit us whenever you like. 
Due to the characteristics of the Asociación Católica de Propagandistas, we invite you to be trained to put yourself at the service of society and to transform it. In this globalised world, where it seems that any idea or reality are essential, this is a great challenge. In fact, these are nothing more than passing trends on Twitter or Facebook, which will soon be abandoned for another new tweet, another new idea or another new changing reality. 
Jesus is our rock; we want to build strongly and walk with you along the way. That is the reason for our joy.

Who are we?

Imagen Makeni - quiénes somos

Who are we?

We are a multidisciplinar University Development Cooperation group, made up by teachers and students of Universidad CEU San Pablo, with the collaboration of external volunteers. The group nowadays features individuals from the School of Medicine, Architecture, Pharmacy, Economics, Law, Communication and Humanities. Its participative, open and flexible calling encourages students' involvement, which is an essential element. The group began in 2009 in the CEU Pastoral and Volunteering Service, with the support of the Vice-Rectorate for Internationalisation since 2014.

Mission and methodology

Mission and methodology

This project was created with the mission to strengthen both educational capacities of University of Makeni (UNIMAK), as well as educational and solidarity capacities of Universidad San Pablo CEU. Thus, its essential goal is to improve the living conditions in developing countries from a comprehensive and transversal approach, using the University as a cooperative channel. It is a collaboration project between both USP CEU and UNIMAK, resulting in various trips, initiatives and plans. Overall, this project seeks to ensure the continuity of their existing relationships, in terms of on-going funded projects, and other related matters which have been developed in the different schools.

This inter-university cooperation project is strengthen by the 'CEU-UNIMARK Seedings'. Seedings are joint working groups which aim to reinforce the relationship and communication between people and the institutions. They seek to support UNIMAK students with financial difficulties. This support is carried through the reduction of their annual tuition fees, based on the actions that students have developed and can certify. Each Seeding has its own working groups, with new previously selected students every year. The project's methodology focuses on solidary learning. Students and teachers jointly lead a proposal with an educational and solidary purpose. Its aim is to meet the community's needs and design the curricular content in a well-rounded way.

 

History and context

Sierra Leone, located in West Africa, is one of the poorest countries in the world. Diamond extraction is the main source of income. Internal peace and foreign aid play an essential and decisive roll in the development of the country. This development slowed down between 2014 and 2016 due to the Ebola outbreak. This epidemic resulted in the death of four thousand Sierra Leoneans. Makeni is the largest city in the Northem Province of Sierra Leone and the fifth largest city in the country, by population. It is also the capital and the economic centre of the Bombali District. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Makeni played a significant role in the development of the city. They realised the poor conditions the population were facing: widespread illiteracy, extreme poverty, endemic diseases... and so they commited to improve Makeni's standards of life.

Makeni's hopes lay in the education and training of future professionals. That's why University of Makeni (UNIMAK) is crucial for the development of the city, the region and the country. Authorised in 2009, it is the only private university in the Northem Province in Sierra Leone. With its situation and history in mind, USP CEU volunteers wanted to contribute by doing their bit. Since the signing of the cooperation agreement in 2009 between USP CEU and UNIMAK, along with the collaboration of the Diocese of Makeni; ten years of uninterrupted collaboration have been flourishing. The project, winner of multiple awards such as the 'ICUSTA FUND, 2017', has involved working groups to develop countless educational and humanitarian initiatives. Over the years, many students and teachers have developed and tutored practical exercises and final year research papers focused on finding solutions to improve life in Sierra Leone.
