Today Isabel Brennan, Community Fundraising Executive for Concern Worldwide, visited the school to train 14 members of the Charity Committee to become Concern Fast Youth Ambassadors. It is an excellent opportunity for our pupils to represent this internationally renowned charity.
The training allowed all pupils to learn about the work of Concern overseas and the bid to end world hunger. In a world where one in nine people go hungry every day change is evidently needed on a global scale.
Concern work in places which are often at greater risk from disasters, both natural and manmade. In an emergency Concern acts quickly to save lives, then they stay to work with communities, rebuilding lives and livelihoods to ensure people are better prepared for future crises. Concern’s approach is enabling families to tackle hunger and work their own way out of poverty.
The ambassadors will seek to raise vital funds for Concern over the next few months.
