Education can set the next generation free from poverty, but tragically, many poor young people are cut off from opportunities to learn. By supporting Catholic schools and scholarship programs, we work with compassionate Catholics to unlock important doors for bright boys and girls who might never have a chance to attend school otherwise. The programs we fund work to strengthen students both mentally and spiritually — a powerful combination that instills them with wisdom and equips them to build a brighter future within their communities.
In 2018, Cross Catholic Outreach used cash donations from generous donors to fund 53 education projects in 16 countries. Among them was Tlahuac Boarding Home for Girls in Mexico, where we supported teachers’ salaries for the ministry’s on-site Catholic school. We also funded scholarships for students of Don Bosco Technical School in the Philippines.
