Get inspired to give it up! this Lent
Could your pupils give something up for Lent and get sponsored to raise money for our life changing work this Lent?
This Lent, we're helping families around the world to help themselves out of poverty. Be it coffee farms or furniture making, we're supporting small business on a big scale.
Use our resources and stories from children and young people in Colombia to inspire pupils to give, act and pray during Lent - from video clips and assemblies to PowerPoints and worship materials.
Pupils can give it up! to raise money for our work by giving up snacks during Lent and getting sponsored, or by giving up their time to organise a fundraising event.
Don't forget to let us know how you get on and send us your photos to add to our wall of fame!
We are helping Maria's family with their coffee business in Colombia, helping them to get a fair price for their coffee. Our video clip, assembly, collective worship, teacher's notes and fundraising activities are all here to help you prepare for Lent Fast Day with CAFOD.
Download our online resources and learn about the lives of young people living in Colombia, such as 15 year old twins Luis Carlos and Eliana, who were forced to leave their homes and start again. Find out how we are helping their family business through our video clip, case studies, assembly and collective worship materials.
