Description:

Development and Peace is the official international development organization of theCatholic Church in Canada and the Canadian member of Caritas Internationalis. Inspired by Gospel values, particularly "the preferential option for the poor," the goals of Development and Peace are to support initiatives by people in the Global South to take control of their lives and to educate Canadians about North-South issues. Our education, advocacy and fund-raising work here at home is carried out by Development and Peace members from coast to coast. During the past 42 years, Development and Peace has provided $531 million to finance 15,200 projects in 70 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Middle East; $130 million of this amount has been allocated in emergency aid. Typical projects involve issues such as peace-building, human rights, agrarian reform, education, community development and economic justice. In fiscal year 2007-2008, Development and Peace financed 234 programs and projects. Of these, 43 involved emergency aid for natural disasters (e.g. floods and earthquakes) or man-made problems (e.g. wars and civil disturbances). The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) helps to finance the work of Development and Peace. The audited financial statements are available on request. As mentioned above, Development and Peace is a member of Caritas Internationalis, and CIDSE, two world-wide networks of Catholic organizations for international development and emergency aid.
