Sacred Mercy Schools Scholarships


Life for the poor in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean is extremely difficult. These boys and girls are desperately searching for a path to a better future. They are eager to obtain an education that will help lift them and their families out of a cycle of poverty, hunger, and despair.

School will soon be back in session, and we want to ensure that no child is left behind. Here's how you can help!

110 box

A gift of $110 provides both a year-long scholarship in your name and daily lunches to a needy student.

22 box

A gift of $22 provides a daily school lunch to a needy child for a year.

Your gift of any amount helps a student succeed!


This special project is a tremendous blessing for poor children living in developing countries. Without the help, they would never be able to attend school, much less benefit from the solid Catholic education the Sacred Mercy Schools provide.

To honor the gift that you’ve given, you will receive a certificate commemorating the creation of your family’s scholarship and signifying the life your gift has helped transform. The certificate is our way of saying thank you for intervening in the life of a child struggling in poverty. It is a symbol of the power of Catholic charity and a reminder of the good our Church can accomplish in the world in Christ’s name and for his glory!



Our educational program provides scholarships to Sacred Mercy Schools. These schools are solid Catholic institutions certified by our ministry and monitored by our International Project Officers to ensure their quality and effectiveness.

In Kenya, the Sacred Mercy Schools are located where the scale of poverty is extreme, where children beg on the streets and where a generation of parents has been virtually wiped out by AIDS. This is a mission work done “in the trenches” where hunger, illiteracy and despair must be battled by the Catholic Church for hope to prevail.

Sacred Mercy Schools provide impoverished children with a basic education; spiritual formation and nutritious daily meals. This combination of services represents a powerful key to escape the poverty that oppresses families – and has for generations.

Please be blessed in knowing that when you create a scholarship, you also open doors to a better future for a child in need. Thank you for your compassion!


Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for the ministry's Sacred Mercy Scholarship Campaign incurred through June 30, 2019, the close of our ministry's new fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
