IMCS Pax Romana Pan African Office.

IMCS Pax Romana is the International Movement of Catholic Students which brings together over 80 diverse national federations, associations, and Movements of Catholic University and Tertiary students from six regions established in 1921 with the aim of promoting peace and justice at the global level, and helping in the holistic formation of students around the globe.The Movement advocates on behalf of its members as a non-governmental organization (NGO) in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI), and United Nations Education, Science and Culture Organization (UNESCO). IMCS is also active with regional inter-governmental and international bodies, such as the International Labor Organization and the World Bank to voice the concerns of youth.

Today, International Movement of Catholic Students, (IMCS Pax Romana) is this year 98 years old. It is a Movement for tertiary students (in universities, Polytechnics, and colleges) whose mission is to ensure that the academic growth and development of students goes hand in hand with their spiritual development, in the light of the real-life situation they encounter and, in the process, develop leaders along Christian Principles. IMCS is guided by the Motto: Preferential Option for the poor.

In Africa, the movement was established in 1956 but it is only after 1978 that the movement got a permanent Secretariat in Nairobi, Kenya. Since then, the movement has successfully spread its wings and is now present in 35 countries and recognized by the Episcopal Conferences of 25 countries in which we have affiliated active members.  The movement is divided into 04 sub-regions namely West Africa, South Africa, East Africa and Central Africa which caters to the Indian Ocean movements.
