Education in Peru

Cáritas Vocational School Day Care

Donate to help transform lives


As impoverished families leave the countryside in search of a better future, impoverished urban neighborhoods in Arequipa, Peru, are expanding, and the Church has had to look for creative ways to help the poor adapt.

Because many arrive without an education or job skills, families risk becoming further mired in poverty. Faithful Catholics are eager to offer hope to these people by supporting vocational training that will enable the newcomers to obtain good-paying jobs. For parents of young children to attend this school, your help is needed. Your gift will fund Christ-centered day care services so children receive nurturing care while their parents study.

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.

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

Donations from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for this project incurred through June 30, 2025, 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.
