Education in Peru

Populorum Progressio Foundation – Technical Education for Impoverished Students

Donate to help transform lives


Young people in the impoverished communities of Peru often grow up without an education or job skills, and they lose hope as a result. Local Catholics believe God has called them to educate and inspire these boys and girls, but they need our help to succeed in that ambitious mission of mercy!

Cross Catholic Outreach is committed to providing the CETPRO Education Center with the resources needed to enable young people to create a path out of poverty. By giving today, you will enable Catholic leaders to provide comprehensive support — including scholarships, new classrooms, school computers and a daycare service — for impoverished students of all ages.

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.
