Education and support

Support to social works for the education of the weakest

In imitation of our Master, we Christians are called to confront the poverty of our brothers and sisters, to touch it, to make it our own and to take practical steps to alleviate it”.” Pope Francis

For the Franciscan friars in the Holy Land, assisting the poor and the needy has always been of paramount importance, but it is not enough. As a matter of fact – even according to the Church’s teachings – it is also important to improve the efforts for human development. It is not enough to feed, you need to teach people to earn their own living. Education and training of the new generations is fundamental, if there is to be any future hope of peace.

In recent years the Association pro Terra Sancta has developed a number of projects, directly and in collaboration with local associates, to assist the weakest and to train a new generation of young people. We are supporting children with disabilities, the elderly and many poor families, with a special focus on women.
