Chalice places special emphasis on helping to provide children with the chance to go to school and learn. They believe that education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty.
Chalice commits over 90 percent of its spending in support of programs. In fiscal year 2015-2016, $22.3 million was spent directly on programs providing nutrition and education to almost 50,000 children and the elderly in 15 developing countries.
