Your Generosity Saves Children from a Life of Poverty!

21,152 children have been served this year by the Sisters of Mary, brought from the depths of poverty, thanks to the grace of God and your generosity!

5,152 new students came into our Boystowns and Girlstowns in 2023. Many of these children have been without school since the pandemic started.

Over 2000 Graduates are now moving on to share their gifts with the world and bring their families out of poverty – all with firm knowledge of the love of God.
