Caritas Internationalis is the humanitarian and development organization of the Catholic Church with over 160 national members. CRS is proud to be a founding member of CI, and CRS works in deep partnership with other Caritas members around the world responding to emergencies, promoting development and advocating for a fair and just world.
Caritas Internationalis (CI) Management Standards have been developed to support member organizations to improve their organizational systems, processes and practices and internal management to be able to better achieve their mission. The CIMS are based on existing good practice and accepted global principles within the humanitarian and international development community, and safeguard professional competence and efficacy in serving carrying out our mission.
The Caritas Internationalis Organizational Review Tool is used to conduct the Member Organization self-assessment. The Tool is comprised of the Caritas Internationalis Management Standards, along with a risk management section and an improvement plan template. The updated Tool includes a Safeguarding Standard.
