Give to Catholic Charities for Education
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.
Our Mano Amiga school system helps children in abject poverty rise above and beyond to become doctors, lawyers, dentists, business professionals, loving parents and involved members of the community. The Mano Amiga schools have been bringing hope to poor families willing to help themselves for nearly 50 years. More than 22,000 children in 40 Mano Amiga schools throughout the world have been served in this unique approach to attacking poverty.
Catholic World Mission also assists non-Mano Amiga schools 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.
