Development cooperation and humanitarian aid are an integral part of Caritas’ activities. The programmes specialize in the fields of education, health care and prevention, and community development. The aid is brought mainly to the Sub-Saharan Africa region (Uganda, Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo) and to India.

Capacities of these organizations are built to enhance processes of civil society strenghtening, inclusive decision-making and volunteering. Youth from Belarus regularly take part in stays in the Czech Republic to be exposed to democratic society principles.
