What We Do
We partner with donors to fund formative Lasallian educational opportunities in 80 different countries around the world. We sponsor formal classrooms, non-traditional experimental programs, and everything in‑between.
Building health clinics and child care facilities, we enable people to advance themselves, their families, and their societies. We do this through a remarkably dedicated, enthusiastic, and compassionate staff who are passionately devoted to the service of others.
Many people on our planet lack basic human services: adequate clean water, available housing, sufficient food, safe living conditions, etc. While our foundation can’t address the needs of all people, we give special attention to the needs of youth‑at‑risk.
These youth include educationally excluded youth (Vietnam), street children (Cameroon), orphans (Rwanda), disabled youth (Japan), individuals with mental illness (India), migrant and refugee youth (Lebanon), HIV+ and AIDS children (Ethiopia), child victims of war (Sri Lanka), juvenile offenders (USA), victims of child trafficking (Colombia), ethnic minorities (Sri Lanka), disadvantaged girls (India), and impoverished children (Haiti).
We provide comforting support and safe refuges for the victims of emotional, physical, and psychological violence. In some cases, we support programs with residential facilities, and in other locations, after-school or walk-in facilities are developed for use. We engage qualified, credentialled counselors, social workers, psychologists, and physicians to provide for individuals entrusted to our care.
We provide short-term material and logistical assistance for natural and man‑made disasters. Realizing that local staffing is important, we are involved in select campaigns when we have the knowledgeable and capable infrastructures to save lives, alleviate suffering and maintain human dignity.
We have assisted with relief efforts in such humanitarian causes as Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) in the Philippines, the earthquake in Haiti, as well as acute starvation in drought areas of South Sudan and Mozambique.
