Swiss Catholic Lenten Fund

The Swiss Catholic Lenten Fund (Fastenopfer), a Swiss Catholic aid agency, promotes development projects aimed at increasing self-empowerment in poor countries. It also conducts outreach efforts in Switzerland regarding poverty and political issues in developing countries.

Its projects also include strategies to combat HIV/AIDS and promote gender equality.
