Knowledge is a powerful weapon. Learn about issues that affect families and communities in the developing world and take the first step in combating hunger, disease, injustice—and our own impassivity. Find out how you can:

  • Learn about hunger and poverty overseas as you and your family observe the Lenten practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
  • Become a more informed consumer by learning about the fair trade practices that ensure poor farmers, artisans and laborers receive fair wages.
  • Help young people understand other cultures around the world as well as issues of poverty, injustice and peace.
  • Raise awareness on your campus about such issues as the Darfur crisis in Sudan, migration, HIV and AIDS and other critical problems facing the poor and vulnerable around the world.
  • Witness firsthand the challenges families and communities face in the developing world and how CRS works with them to improve their lives.
  • Stay informed about the people CRS serves overseas.
