Empowering the Poor Through Microenterprise
Almost half of the global population lives in poverty on less than $2.50 per day, and over 1.3 billion people live in extreme poverty on less than $1.25 per day. Poverty affects every aspect of a person’s life, from food to drinking water, sanitation, utilities, disease, and employment.
When you donate to Cross Catholic Outreach, you are doing the work of Jesus Christ to empower and increase the self-sufficiency of the poor. In poverty-stricken regions of Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, and South America, we offer material aid in times of need, economic empowerment through micro-financing, and supplies to help farmers and entrepreneurs support their families and communities. Please browse our current projects and donate to the poor for the benefit of all God’s people.
Empowering the Poor
When you select an aid project, your donation to that project will be used to cover any expenditures for the project incurred through June 30, 2021, the close of our ministry's fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
