This project began in the 1980s to offer children and youth in the area of Tabasco, Mexico the opportunity to study. Since then, dozens of young people have graduated from high school, vocational schools, and universities. Many young people benefit from this program and exchange letters with their godparents in U.S.

Each summer, the Claretian Missionary Sisters coordinate a one week mission trip to the Dominican Republic with a group of young adults and a medical/dental team. During the week, a day camp is offered for local kids and youth, and medical and dental services are provided to children in need.

Through fundraisers we support the education and evangelizing efforts of the Antonia Paris Center (under the direction of our sisters) that operates in a very poor area in the outskirts of Santo Domingo. Click here to read more about these missions.

In India we have one house in the central state of Maharastra and two houses near Mysore, a city three and half hours South of Bangalore. One house is in Naguvanahalli and the other one in Subash Nagar. In this last one, we have a tutoring and nutrition project. As with all our projects, we believe that education is the key which can contribute to overcoming economic poverty.

The nutrition program provides a glass of milk, dinner, and a sweet to more than 60 children Monday through Friday. At the same time, there is a teacher available to help the children with their homework.

Health is very fragile for many of these children, and often times, when they get sick, they come to us for medicine.

In India, education is basically free, but school supplies, uniforms, books, etc. aren’t. We help needy families to buy uniforms, clothes, and school supplies.
