Project Compassion for 2019 was launched last week. Each year Caritas Australia's Project Compassion brings together Catholic communities across Australia during Lent to help end poverty, promote justice, and uphold dignity.
The 2019 Project Compassion theme is hope, and giving Lent 100% in the name of hope.
Here at Salesian, we encourage classes to make use of the stories, videos, teaching materials, and activity ideas on the Caritas website to raise students' awareness of poverty and injustice as it affects young people globally, particularly as depicted in the six Lenten stories from Zimbabwe, Indonesia, the Solomon Islands, Australia, Bangladesh, and Vietnam.
We make Project Compassion our only fundraising activity for the school community during Term One. Money raised for Project Compassion goes towards Caritas Australia's humanitarian and long-term development programs in 27 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Pacific, and with Australia's First Peoples.
