«The movements cooperate with the dioceses and the parishes in the formation of lay people who are convinced about Christ, motivated, committed to their faith and eager to share with others the transforming gospel message».
Since 1987 this program has sought to increase solidarity with the most abandoned sectors of society through the sale of coupons which can be exchanged for a quantity of food, books, medicine or construction materials.

The funds raised by this project go to social projects around the world. Support in the form of cash is sent in from outside the country and used to purchase local goods. In this way the economic development of the area is promoted, the cost of shipping and storage is avoided, and food is kept from spoiling.

This program emphasizes the need for the recipients to help out the community in return for what they have received. 52,000 families have been aided on a stable basis in Ecuador, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and Spain.
