Chalice in Schools provides free multimedia resources to Catholic educators and Chaplains and one-of-a-kind opportunities for Canadian students to engage with their peers in schools in Chalice’s sites in the developing world. Chalice staff will work with educators to create a customized program that works for the needs of their class, and can include live speakers and school-to-school matching and communication.

Educators can choose from any or all of five awareness and fundraising campaigns, depending on the age-level of their students, the duration of the school’s participation, and the poverty issue they would like to focus on.

"I learned that even the smallest donation can make a huge difference. Now I think about how much money we raised, and how much the well we are helping to build will do for the school, and the children who go there. I am very happy that I got to play a role in the raising of the money, and I hope to do this kind of charity work again." - Lara, high school student
