Having recently arrived in Galway with my husband and two young boys, I was looking to express my passion for social justice. So I applied to volunteer for Trócaire in early 2019.
As a volunteer in Trócaire, I have been involved in a range of campaigns and activities, including the annual Lent talk in parishes in Galway, school talks, the Bloom Festival, Galway Climate Strikes and the Trócaire hut at the Galway Christmas Market, among others. In particular, I enjoy the opportunity to engage with diverse people on campaigns highlighting the situation of vulnerable people in Africa and elsewhere.
Volunteering with Trócaire has been both rewarding and gratifying. Helping with administrative work in the Galway office gave me a sense of purpose. What I appreciate particularly about Trócaire is the fact that there is a space for everyone—indeed, despite joining while nursing a six-week old baby, Trócaire found a space for me to flower and fulfil my dream of advocating for social justice. It is an experience that is worth your time and there is dignity in being associated with such a noble organisation.
