Caritas Australia is the Catholic Agency for International Aid and Development in Australia. The organisation is part of Caritas Internationalis, an international confederation of 165 Catholic relief, development and social service organisations working to build a better world for the poorest of the poor in over 200 countries and territories.
We are a non-government international aid and development agency that supports long-term development programs in impoverished communities in Africa, Asia, East Timor, Latin America, Indigenous Australia and the Pacific – helping oppressed people to rediscover their dignity by taking a greater control over their lives and overcoming poverty.
Caritas Australia works through the principles and practice of community development supporting people to help themselves out of poverty, hunger and injustice.
