Education in Belize

Maya Ketchi Women

Donate to help transform lives


Growing up in Belize’s “Forgotten District” of Toledo is a challenge. Many boys and girls feel as if the odds are stacked against them, and for indigenous girls the hardships can also mean missing out on an education. Mayan women are among the most illiterate population in Belize. That is why the Pallottine Sisters need your help. They want to give local girls a chance at a brighter future.

Your generosity will fund three scholarships that will not only cover tuition and school supplies, but will also enable them to live with the Pallottine Sisters at the Nazareth Retreat Center. Here, they will benefit from tutoring and will receive daily nutritious meals and share in the sisters’ religious life. Freed from the burden of their difficult home situations, the girls can focus on reaching for their dreams and rising out of poverty.

Our Global Work

In everything we do, we remain focused on the Lord, serving with humility, fervor and love, and advancing Catholic evangelization. We work in partnership with church-based ministries and other faith-based organizations, creating an ideal synergy for the greatest impact.

Financial Accountability

At Cross Catholic, we meticulously honor the intent of our donors. All proceeds are restricted for the specific project for which they are raised. In that rare event that more funds are received than are required for a specific project, the additional funds will be used to meet the most urgent needs.

Fundraising & Administrative Expenses 5.05%

More than 94% of all organizational expenses, including donated goods, went directly to programs that help the poor.

Cross Catholic Outreach

Our mission is to mobilize the global Catholic Church to transform the poor and their communities materially and spiritually for the glory of Jesus Christ. Your gift empowers us to serve the poorest of the poor by channeling life-changing aid through an international network of dioceses, parishes and Catholic missionaries. This cost-effective approach helps break the cycle of poverty and advance Catholic evangelization.

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.
