Education Initiative


In 2023, we formally instituted an Education Committee to strategize guidance for creating a culture of inclusion in our Diocese.

From giving schools and employers the confidence and resources to educate and hire people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, to holding events to educate our community on the importance of inclusion of people with disabilities, Porto Charities' Education Committee aims to make inclusion and belonging a reality in the most important areas of our lives: Education, Employment and Community.
