On mission, our Canadian and Paraguayan volunteers, staff, and families will:

- share stories and dialogue to learn from one another, and

- collaborate in service projects.

In preparation, our Canadian team will invite others to support our mission by sponsoring a child from Villeta, and we will collectively raise funds to support the community served by the CMAVIL Site.

Chalice's mission is to "bring Christ to the poor and the poor to Christ". Through meaningful dialogue, interaction, and service, our mission team will have a greater understanding of both the challenges we face as brothers and sisters in Christ, as well as our capacity (with God's grace) to respond with love and support.

The Chalice CMAVIL Sponsor Site opened in 2012, is run by a local religious congregation, and sponsors 498 children, caring for each of them, their families, and the wider community. The Daughters of Mary Help of Christians have been engaged in community social work (through CMAVIL, the Center of Maria Auxiliadora Villeta) since 1964. With analysis and deep reflection on social problems, they seek to respond to the needs found in each of the vulnerable families, particularly in the peripheral areas of the city and in rural areas of the district. Their work is strengthened by joining groups of people of goodwill through different projects, creating a network of entities and NGOs to support their work.
