Our mission is to help children break free from a life of poverty.

In our charity programmes, the Sisters of Mary have established schools - the majority of which are boarding schools - for the children of the poorest families and we give them free food, care, and shelter as well as quality education, and vocational training tailored to the skill needs of the local economy.

Our impact reaches far beyond each of our 20,000 students currently enrolled. Our poverty alleviation efforts, through the education of destitute boys and girls worldwide, lifts entire communities out of their lives of suffering and despair. We give them hope for a brighter future.

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, more than 150,000 children have already graduated from our programmes and thousands more lives have been changed for the better.
