Education in Colombia

Populorum Progressio Foundation – Education for Rural Youths

Donate to help transform lives


Young people in rural Colombia often become victims of generational poverty, earning the same meager incomes and engaging in the same basic farming activities their parents did before them. Without access to education, these young men and women never have an opportunity to explore their God-given talents, and their opportunities are limited as a result.

Catholic leaders feel called to unlock the potential of impoverished youths by investing in their education. Your support will help enable the construction of a school with modern classrooms so rural youths can engage in technical education that will empower them with job skills and a vision of hope.

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 and 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 5.82%
More than 94 percent of all organizational expenses, including donated goods, went directly to programs that help the poor.
Audited Financials FY2022

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures 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.
