Education in Ecuador

Salesian Chicos de la Calle

Donate to help transform lives


Families in the urban slums of Ecuador don’t have the resources to properly feed their children or pay for an education.

Often, children must work at a young age or beg on the streets. Some fall prey to gangs and addiction. In response, the Salesians of Don Bosco offer a compassionate ministry that keeps children in school, provides nourishing food and offers spiritual formation. Your generous gift will restore childhood joys to impoverished boys and girls – as well as provide them with hope for a brighter future.

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 4.62%
More than 95 percent of all organizational expenses, including donated goods, went directly to programs that help the poor.
Audited Financials FY2021

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, 2023, 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.
