LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Your Catholic Voice Foundation is ordering its first batch of XO Tablets, generously gifted to the organization by readers of Catholic Online. The next step will be to distribute the tablets to children in schools where they can be used to promote moral education.

The progress is part of YCVF's plan to give every child in the developing world a tablet computer which they can use for learning. Tablet computers such as the XO Tablet are designed for education in the developing world and use by children. The tablets are durable and can replace an entire library of books.

Stamp out poverty and hunger forever with education.


When combined with moral education, food and medicine, the tablets provide another key component in the overall plan which is to end world hunger and poverty through food, medicine and education.

Poverty is the condition most closely associated with hunger and poverty is caused by a lack of resources, particularly medicine and education, and corruption. By addressing these issues, YCVF hopes to stamp out poverty and hunger in the decades to come.

The program begins with shipments of food and medicine to schools where these precious resources are needed. Parents will commonly send this children to school for the food. Children, once in school, will receive a moral education, which is one based on Christian values and ethics. They will be further engaged by the XO Tablets which make learning easier and fun.

Once prepared with a moral education, these children can be expected to grow into responsible adults, less inclined towards corruption. The end result is an end to poverty, which is the primary contributor to hunger.

An end to this scourge is in sight, but it can only be secured by the generous efforts of those who care.

If you are one of those who care, and who wish to join Pope Francis' campaign of 'Prayer and Action' to end world hunger by 2025, please consider contributing to this campaign with a one-time gift. Your efforts will help Pope Francis and others accomplish the amazing goal of banishing world hunger and absolute poverty from the face of the Earth.

Let the Holy Spirit Teach us How to Become Prayer Watch

Image of St. Paul wrote to the early Christians in Greece, telling them to pray without ceasing. (1 Th. 5:16-19) They did not live lives of ease, in any sense of the word. They had families, occupations, bills, and yes, difficulties and struggles beyond what many of us could imagine. They also suffered greatly for their faith. Yet, he instructed them to Pray without ceasing. Did he really mean it? I believe that he did.
