Church Gate Collection
Alex Fearon and Daniel Keane (fifth year students) will be travelling to Calcutta in November as part of a group of fifteen students from Belvedere College. This social justice programme has been running since 1995 and the students fundraise to support a number of projects and then work for two weeks on those projects in Calcutta. In some of the poorest areas of Calcutta and in the most basic of conditions, they teach street children and those who work as child labourers. They also help to care for the destitute and dying in the hospices set up by Mother Teresa, giving some degree of dignity back to these people who have nothing. All of the money they bring with them goes directly to the poor of Calcutta and does make a difference to the lives of some of the poorest people in the world. On the weekend of 8th & 9th August, Alex and Daniel, along with family and friends, will carry out a fund-raising collection in the parish of Howth. All the funds raised will go towards this charity work, every euro is worth 70 Rupee in India so the money goes a long way.
