Share Lent 2015

Development and Peace is the official international development organization of the Catholic Church in Canada. For over 40 years, Development and Peace has supported agricultural and educational programs as well as community action in developing countries. It has also advocated for peace and human rights.

Each year, Development and Peace runs a fund-raising campaign entitled Share Lent. The stated purpose of this campaign is threefold:

1. to educate Canadians about international development;

2. to raise funds; and

3. to renew the spirit of Lent.

As the Canadian member of Caritas Internationalis, Development and Peace is participating in that group's global anti-hunger campaign. Share Lent 2015 is focusing on the role of small-scale family farmers in fighting hunger in the Global South. The theme for the Share Lent 2015 campaign is Sow Much Love to Share.
