It is a side benefit that we have actually directly sent 1.3 million college textbooks to Africa, but this is not our primary business. What we know about alternative family forms is a good indicator of what we might expect from this variant. And, what’s more, it was more cost effective; in claims that anticipated current-day preoccupations with overhead expenses, the defenders of Catholic charity also highlighted the fact that the selfless service provided by lay volunteers and women religious guaranteed low administrative costs, compared with the high expenses associated with organized charity. 55 In all these ways, Catholics mounted a sustained assault against modern philanthropy.
