Project Compassion is Caritas Australia's annual Lenten fundraising and awareness-raising appeal. Millions of Australians come together in solidarity with the world's poor to help end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity.
The education which accompanies our social justice initiatives is more important than the raising of funds. While this belief has a future perspective, the raising of funds is indeed important for those requiring support at this particular moment in time.
During Lent the students of Our Lady of Dolours School work devotedely and enthusiastically to raise funds to support Project Compassion. Here are some of our fund raising activities in action. Organised and led by Year 6 students, everyone in the school participates.
