Gretta Fernandes, SSpS, Executive Secretary, VIVAT International 

During the regular meeting of the Board of Trustees on January 25, 2024, Sr. Miriam Altenhofen, SSpS, and Fr. Alain Mayama, CSSp, were appointed as the President and Vice President of VIVAT International, respectively, from 2024 to 2027. We congratulate both of them as they embark on leading VIVAT International in its mission to promote life and human dignity for all, especially those who are marginalized.

We express our gratitude to Fr. Paulus Budi Kleden, SVD, for his dedicated leadership of VIVAT International as its President from 2021 to 2024. His passion and conviction in advocating for sound policies and the promotion of human rights have been invaluable, especially in today’s challenging times. Additionally, we thank Sr. Veronique Wiedower, CSC, for her steadfast support of VIVAT International as its Vice President from 2022 to 2024. We look forward to their continued guidance and contributions as they serve on the Board of Trustees.
