How beautiful it would be if each of you, every evening, could say: 'Today at school, at home, at work, guided by God, I showed a sign of love towards one of my friends, my parents, an older person!'Pope Francis, addressing young people

We can train your group to:
- deliver SCIAF talks or workshops in school, or to feeder primaries
- plan and lead a prayer service for SCIAF’s work at school or in their parish
- promote and sell SCIAF Real Gifts in their parish
- arrange a SCIAF evening in their parish to raise awareness of SCIAF’s work.
Caritas pupils can also volunteer to fundraise for SCIAF.
