Project Compassion begins in 7 days - your school is encouraged to support it
Ash Wednesday falls on the 14 February this year and signals the start of the Lenten period of preparation for Easter.

Caritas Australia's annual Lenten fundraising and awareness-raising appeal, Project Compassion brings thousands of Australians together in solidarity with the world's poor to help end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity.

The theme for 2018 is "For a just future" and will feature stories about Caritas' initiatives in Nepal, Cambodia, Jordan, Mozambique, the Philippines and Australia.

Educational resources for schools are available via the Project Compassion website.
