PROJECT HOPE provides educational opportunities for youths from disadvantaged backgrounds who are being educated and cared for by the Missionary Sisters of Christ in Brazil. While these youngsters possess great natural talents, they have little or no opportunity to develop them. These children are among the poorest of the poor, as is usually the case with women and children living in poverty in developing nations. Many do not graduate from high school, which means that they lack the skills necessary to ever overcome a life of poverty for themselves and their children.
PROJECT HOPE uses education to break this cycle of poverty. Its ultimate goal is to build upon the solid educational foundation provided by the Missionary Sisters of Christ and to offer an open door to the future through educational programs in Brazil and at Saint Vincent College. The program, in the past, has provided funding for students to come to Saint Vincent College and earn a college degree. It is our hope to be able to renew this program, both in Brazil and in the USA.
