  • Description: Pope Francis has launched a revolutionary crowdfunding platform that connects change-makers in the Missions with a growing digital community of mission supporters. Powered by the Pontifical Mission Societies, MISSIO provides direct access to project leaders in the Missions who are working on the frontline of service among the poor and vulnerable. Members of the MSSIO community can connect with these project leaders and learn – in real time – how their support is making a difference in the lives of others.
