For All Future Generations

Spanning across the six weeks of Lent each year, Project Compassion brings thousands of Australian schools, parishes and supporters together to raise funds for people living in some of the most vulnerable communities across the world.

Get involved by watching the stories of Project Compassion, hosting a fundraiser, joining a Caritas Conversation, or downloading our resources.

Your generous support can help change lives today – and For All Future Generations.


What drives Caritas

Caritas is committed to work alongside the most vulnerable, and to address the imbalance of power by including the people affected in the decisions impacting their lives.

Caritas is inspired by the Gospel, which finds its expression in Catholic social traditions.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.” Luke 4:17-19


Justice, dignity and hope for humanity and all of God’s creation.


In the spirit of the Gospel, Caritas works in partnership with communities in Australia and overseas to achieve their development goals and to thrive.

Caritas Australia is part of the international Caritas network.
