International programs

Education and health are basic human rights that remain inaccessible to many people living in the Global South. CJI supports formal and informal education projects that include distance learning, workshops and practical training. CJI continues to promote and advocate for access to quality healthcare for all through partners who provide free medical care and facilitate health and medical training.

CJI stands in solidarity with our partners in the promotion of peace and the defence of human rights. Through advocacy, capacity building and the promotion of good governance, our partners address issues such as freedom of speech, access to basic rights, tax justice, migration and Indigenous peoples’ rights.

Sustainable agriculture and a dependable source of income help communities break free from poverty, promote self-reliance and dignity and empower people to care for our common home. CJI supports a number of projects that promote sustainable agriculture and livelihood support through advocacy, workshops, skills training and community development.

There are about 71 million refugees and internally displaced people worldwide. CJI supports its partners who accompany, serve and advocate for forcibly displaced people through emergency relief and long-term development projects. Because refugees spend on average 17 years away from their home, investing in education is essential. For humanitarian action CJI works with the Xavier Network to maximize the effectiveness of their collective effort.

When I was a teenager, my mother would collect money from women at the parish and send it to a Jesuit in India -- that was my inspiration. By supporting the work of CJI, I get to continue my mother's legacy and meet some of the Jesuits at their events. This has given me further inspiration and pleasure.


I support CJI and their partners because I trust them to use my donations wisely.
