Africa & India – Partnering with the Poor

In Eastern Africa and India, the Marianists are committed to empowering the poor to break free of the cycle of poverty.

The Marianists operate schools, vocational training centers and human development ministries that make an enormous difference in the daily lives of the people they touch — and in the futures they will lead.

In this country of 1.2 billion people, a third of the population lives on less than $2 a day. To empower the poor at the bottom of the Indian caste system, the Marianists sponsor five schools in rural areas. The Marianists also sponsor a parish, two vocational training centers for unemployable youth, and two rescue and education programs for street children.
