Our Commitment to Global Justice

Our Commitment to Global Justice

This section of our website aims to gather together and celebrate all the global development work that takes place through our school.

"Our Lady's is committed to learning from the global community in a number of ways. One such way is through our commitment to global justice programmes. Through a number of exciting (and essential) initiatives, Our Lady's is following Pope Francis' call to become a Church of the Poor. Through supporting these different programmes, Our Lady's is living out the values and following the commandment of Christ to love our neighbour, be it in this country or further afield."

Partner Ghana

This October, a team of students and staff ar heading out to Eguafo Village in Ghana to put a water harvest system and sanitation block in our partner school. Keep an eye on their progress through our Twitter feed and our website.

CAFOD

CAFOD is the official Oversees Development Agency for the Catholic Church of England and Wales, dedicated to educating young people about global injustice, responding to the challenges of global poverty and encouraging people to campaign against systems that keep people around the world poor.

CAFOD is one of our main charities because we work in solidarity with CAFOD in supporting our brothers and sisters around the globe in eliminating poverty and injustice.

If we are to to truly become a Church to the poor, then we must strive to ensure that our children know that we live in a global society and we must strive to bring the experiences of those less fortunate than ourselves, from other countries, into each and every classroom.

The Milenium Goals (MDGs)

At Our Lady's we are encouraging our school community to learn about the Milenium Development Goals. As global citizens, we have a responsibility to help realise these challenging but fundamentally important goals. Working to support these developments, as a school, we can contribute to the fight to end world poverty.
