Challenge to Change

Challenge to Change is a development education project aimed at young people
attending Presentation primary and post-primary schools.


Challenge to Change seeks to:
• raise awareness
• bring about a greater understanding of global inequality
• allow young people to see the impact of a changing global environment
• empower young people by exploring ways in which their actions at local level can
impinge for the better on issues such as injustice, human rights, fairtrade,
racism and exploitation.
By informing the students, the project brings about a heightened awareness, a social
consciousness and a broader vision and appreciation of development education issues.

This year our Challenge to Change project focused on connecting people through culture. We held a cultural diversity celebration in April. We showcased our event at the Challenge to Change seminar in Kilkenny recently. 6th class had the honour of opening the event with their traditional African welcome dance 'Funga Alafia' accompanied by drumming and chanting. Well done to everyone.
