Chalice works in impoverished communities to help struggling families overcome the cycle of poverty. Education is the first and most important step in breaking the cycle. Too often, children must skip class or drop out of school to carry water, care for siblings, or earn money for their families.
Sponsorship gives children the support needed to overcome obstacles so they can attend and stay in school, and allows families to provide nutritious food and better care for their children. Children are selected for sponsorship based on need and family circumstances, regardless of race, age, ability, gender, or religion. Education gives every child the opportunity to shine.
Ukraine Regional Assistance Fund
Although the recent security situation in our Ukrainian sites has been relatively stable, families and site staff continue to struggle with frequent air raid sirens and lengthy power outages. Additionally, families must try to cope with the ongoing hardships of lost wages and increases in the cost of almost everything.
In light of Ukraine’s ongoing struggles, we are continuing to accept donations to the Ukraine Regional Assistance Fund, to help families cope with the hardships they continue to endure. A generous Chalice supporter is offering a matching gift of $500,000 for donations to the fund.
