Education

What Is Our Education Pillar?

Education attacks poverty at the root level, allowing individuals to realize their God-given potential to elevate their lives and communities. An enlightened mind opens the door for people to make generational change. By lifting the impoverished out of educational poverty, we spread seeds of hope and provide avenues away from the negativity of drugs and crime.

Catholic World Mission assists around the world in need of basic assistance such as school desks and chairs, and much-needed repairs to school properties damaged by natural disasters.

Learn more about our education projects below and how you can help us provide the gift of education to children around the world.

YOUR GENEROSITY MAKES A DIFFERENCE!

Give to Catholic Charities that Build Schools Overseas

Whenever you’re looking for a way to give back and honor what God has given you, consider investing in children’s futures all across the globe. It’s with your generous support that we’re able to build schools and provide supplies that help continue a child’s education. From new desks in Mexico to a school roof in Nigeria, your dollar means more when you choose Catholic World Mission.

We start all projects by working with the community. Often, our American perception of needs is different than what these communities truly need to succeed. Therefore, we have community members identify their own needs. This also helps them take ownership of the projects we complete.

When you donate to a Catholic charity’s education program, you’re giving to a long-term vision. We don’t want to give any handouts. Instead, our goal is to empower individuals in impoverished communities through education and spiritual development. As a donor, you’ll get updates about all our progress building a school, and you’ll even get testimonials about what these schools have done for the lives of children and others in the community.
