Empower Evangelization

Around the world, there are priests and religious pouring their hearts into sharing the Gospel, but struggling to make ends meet due to extreme poverty.

Your support means they can focus entirely on what they do best—bringing Jesus Christ to others.

Making a Difference

Even a few dollars a day can help bring the light of the Gospel to an entire community.

Join us in spreading the transformative message of the Gospel to communities in need.

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.

Our Guarantee

CANELA makes every effort to ensure that all donations are being used in the best way possible to spread the Gospel.

1. Transparency

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.

2. Accountability

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.

3. Efficiency

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.
