LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Working with Catholic Team Global, Your Catholic Voice Foundation distributed a batch of XO Tablets to students at Our Lady of Guadalupe parish summer school in Bakersfield, California.
Our Lady of Guadalupe School is part of the diocese of Fresno and serves the community of Bakersfield, providing a quality moral education to students. The Sisters Servants of the Blessed Sacrament provide complete Catholic instruction to the kids who typically come from the poorer homes in the area.
The distribution of the tablets is part of Your Catholic Voice Foundation's plan of 'Prayer and Action' to end world hunger and poverty by providing a moral education to kids who will be the next generation of workers and leaders for us.
The plan involves three distinct components which are the provision of food and medicine to kids in need (where relevant), distributed through Catholic networks, moral education provided though Catholic schools, and quality learning tools that will engage, motivate and empower students to make the most of their education.
The distribution at Our Lady of Guadalupe is a live dress-rehearsal for distributions further afield.

Your Catholic Voice Foundation, which is a 503c non-profit corporation gathers gifts from supporters and sponsors of Catholic projects, then distributes those gifts via Catholic networks. In this case, a 'Prayer and Action' squad from Catholic Team Global delivered the tablets.
In a few weeks, before the end of the summer term at Our Lady of Guadalupe School, we will do a follow-up progress report to see how the tablets are being used and what difference they have made for the school.
We will report the progress back to you, our readers.
In the meantime, if you would like to support this groundbreaking Catholic charity project you are encouraged to contribute to our campaign of 'Prayer and Action' to help people in need around the world.
