    Grit and Guidance Empower At-Risk Youth

    Grit-the drive to reach a goal even when life gets hard-is a value Americans live by. It's the stuff of the American Dream, which tells us we can do anything with hard work and determination. Some psychologists believe grit is a key trait for success. There's no shortage of evidence connecting the two.

  • Today, CRS celebrated its first annual Community Day! Staff across the world volunteered around the local offices where they live and work to extend our mission of serving others while also strengthening our own community of colleagues

  • In the West African nation of Niger, malaria is responsible for 1/3 of all deaths. Using a simple preventive medicine, we can protect millions of children. Watch how it works, and join us on World Malaria Day to help Crush Malaria:

    Crush Malaria. Because we can.

    Malaria deaths have been reduced by 60% over the past 15 years, yet this disease remains one of the largest killers of children in Africa. It's time to do more. We can prevent malaria. We can treat it. With your help, we can work toward eliminating it.

  • “No one ever tells you how hard it is to give birth and become a mother, and to live a married life with your husband and new family,” says Grace Okiki, who volunteers for a local care group in the village of Kaluoch, in Western Kenya. “It can be so hard. And you’re so young.”

    Grace’s care group is supported by CRS through the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation. The groups help mothers teach fellow mothers key principles, like how a child develops in the womb, how to play with a newborn, how to stimulate young minds and how to nourish growing babies.

  • A great piece in The New York Times about our savings and lending program in Central African Republic.

  • At CRS, we know that a child’s playtime is crucial for their development -- especially in the first 1,000 days. That’s why we have THRIVE. A program focused on teaching mothers, with young children, skills and techniques to empower their growing babies. Pictured here is baby Shakirah who contracted cerebral malaria which left her fully paralyzed. Toys like the car her mother made are helping Shakirah with mobility.
