Franciscan Works is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty for the poorest of poor in developing countries through holistic education rooted in Gospel values in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi.
We develop the individual potential of children living in poverty so 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 Liberia, West Africa. Liberia Mission is a community of love, learning, work and prayer, providing education, life skills, faith-formation, and opportunity to 500 children and youth. In a nation where two-thirds of children never attend school, we feel a deep calling to provide access to education for the poorest of the poor.
