Making a Difference
The Catholic Association for the New Evangelization in Latin America and Africa (CANELA) is a fully Catholic charity that supports men and women who bring the light of the Gospel to parts of Africa and Latin America where adherence to the faith is often in jeopardy.
We Support Some Amazing Projects
CANELA supports existing, well-proved educational and evangelization projects in Latin America and Africa, that train community leaders and educators who in turn are committed to organizing educational projects at the community level. Supported projects include:
Committee for Priests' Welfare
Africa and Latin America
School of Faith and Leadership
“Centro Pastoral Fidei”
Evangelizadores de Tiempo Completo
Donations from People like You
Full-time Catechists Supported
Souls Brought Closer to Jesus
CANELA makes every effort to ensure that all donations are being used in the best way possible.
We provide clear and regular reporting and updates on all of our programs and projects, so you can see in a real and concrete way the good that God is working through your support.
We require accountability for all the programs and individuals that we support, to ensure that all funds are being used in the best way possible to spread the Gospel in these poor communities.
We excel in operational efficiency. All of our staff are volunteers and several of them actually live in Latin America and Africa. This keeps our overhead low (less than 5%) and gives us maximum oversight over each project.
