Most of the world left Liberia when Ebola ended, but we're not going anywhere. In memory of Mary Ann O'Driscoll and Zota Zeatemah.See More Videos
We Are Franciscan Works
"Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you're doing the impossible." - St. Francis of Assisi
Franciscan Works is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty for the poorest of poor children in developing countries through education rooted in Gospel values in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi.
We develop the individual potential of children living in poverty so that they can live as God intended, making full use of their talents and abilities for the common benefit, in communion with God, nature and all humankind.
Franciscan Works currently supports Liberia Mission, Inc. Located in West Africa, Liberia Mission is a community of love, learning, work and prayer, providing education, life-skills, faith-formation and opportunity to 400 children and youth. In a nation where two thirds of children never attend school, we feel a deep calling to offer access to education for the poorest of the poor.
