Provide Education

Catholic Relief Services opens classrooms—and minds—in the most remote corners of the world. Our projects improve access to education, teaching quality, parental involvement and school infrastructure.

We also promote girls’ education, adult literacy, early childhood development, health and nutrition, and vocational training. And, since 1958, CRS has helped provide nutritious school lunches.

Student Uniform

In the places Catholic Relief Services works, many families have to pay for their children’s education, which often includes tuition, school supplies and uniforms. Providing a school uniform will get a child off to a fresh start and free up family resources for other expenses, like tuition and books.
