Fr. Charles R. Dittmeier, Maryknoll Priest Associate

Educating the deaf in Cambodia continues to make a difference to more than 51,000 deaf people and 500,000 who are hard-of-hearing.

Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers strive to provide more and better services to the deaf population by collaborating and partnering with other organizations to extend our reach. One of these partners is Epic Arts, a UK-based organization that promotes performing arts and skills training for people with or without disabilities.

You can help provide hostels to house and feed students and provide education, job training, interpreting, sign language, deaf community development and social services.

Hong Kong

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. Joseph V. McCabe, M.M.

The Four Maryknoll Schools have made some major changes; the biggest change was for the Maryknoll Society to become more involved in the evangelization and Christian formation of our students. Early in 2014, we implemented Independent Management Committees for each of our schools. A Youth Minister to oversee programs at all four schools was hired and pastoral workers were hired for three schools in 2015 to help the principals and youth minister meet the needs of our students.

Maryknoll continues to offer extracurricular religious programs that take place after school and at lunch time for students who want to pray or learn more about the Catholic faith. The pastoral workers enhance the Catholic aspects of the schools and insure that the quality of the classes is high and that the doctrine is explained in a coherent and professional level.

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. Paul M. Sykora, M.M.

In three learning centers, serving 170 children with teachers and volunteers, Fr. Paul Sykora offers tutoring to children in a poor area of Cochabamba, Bolivia where immigration from rural areas is high and families from other cultures must adapt.  The children now live in a world that their parents do not understand.

Learning Spanish language skills is the first step in advancing in school and adjusting to their new environment.

Your gift provides an education to the youth in Bolivia.

Region:

Country:

Brazil

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. Dennis Moorman, M.M.

Fear, anxiety, depression… these are common symptoms of trauma that Fr. Dennis Moorman addresses in his training program for trauma therapists in Brazil.  Each class can accommodate up to 80 students, and a volunteer assistant is assigned to every three students. 

Volunteers are from low-income neighborhoods, and often the victims of trauma themselves.  By volunteering, they experience healing they could never afford on their own.

Your support will contribute greatly to this program’s success.

Guatemala

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. Edward O. Custer, M.M.

Many youngsters in El Ramate Parish of Guatemala cannot continue their studies after primary school because their families are just too poor to afford the cost of school supplies and end-of-year fees.  Father Edward Custer helps defray these costs so the children can advance to junior high and high school.

Your gift supports the future of these children.
