Programs: Liberia Mission, Inc. is a project of Franciscan Works. Located in West Africa, Liberia Mission is a community of love, learning, work and prayer. Here, poor and orphaned children - survivors of Liberia's long and brutal civil war - are learning to become future leaders in their families, communities, and country. Liberia Mission includes homes for boys and girls, St. Anthony of Padua school, and St. Michael Catholic church. There are currently nearly 400 children served at Liberia Mission.
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.
1. The number of children that we provide care for.
2. The number of children that we support that graduate from high school and from college.
3. The number of people in the United States that we educate about how to help the poor around the world.
Our 20 year goal is to help 1,000 kids become leaders of families and communities
