Giving Hope to Those Without
CARITAS’ Child Sponsorship program is a powerful and cost-effective way to change the life of a child, and to change the life of a sponsor. For about a dollar a day CARITAS provides an impoverished child with a basic education, an enriched spirituality, better health and hope for the future. At the same time, the sponsor gains a global perspective and a unique spiritual insight into the enriching effects of true charity.
What makes CARITAS unique is that we work with Catholic Religious Orders that directly provide the on location care and services to needy children, including books, educational supplies, school uniforms, nutritious daily meals, clean water, counseling, religious instruction and more.
