In addition to providing grants that support low-income communities in their efforts to confront the injustices that affect them, CCHD seeks to provide education and promote understanding about poverty and its root causes. This dual strategy of investment in local, low-income communities and education for justice reflects the mandate of the Scriptures and the principles of Catholic Social Teaching. These are just a few of the ways that parishes and individuals can encounter, learn and take action around issues of poverty and injustice.
The Catholic Campaign for Human Development supports a number of education initiatives that teach different audiences about the root causes of poverty, Catholic Social Teaching, and how to provide support to those on the margins. If you would like to host a seminar or have an idea as to how to educate your community about these topics, please contact us at [email protected]
