On the Trócaire Box this Lent, there are two amazing women from South Sudan – Awut and Ajak, who had to flee brutal conflict in order to save their families but who’s bond and kindness to each other helped them survive against the odds.
This Lent we are inviting you to help us support people like Awut and Ajak by designing your very own Trócaire Box with our My Trócaire Box activity and thinking of ways to fill those boxes. Whether you are in the classroom or home-schooling click below to find out more.
Normally at this time of year we would be going into schools to talk about our Lent campaign and how you can get involved but as that isn’t possible at this moment, we’ve put together this short video. Here, you’ll meet Awut and Ajak and find out more about the challenges they face and you’ll learn more about the work we do and how you can support us.
Kindness is a huge part of this year’s Lent story. The activity ‘A Photo Story from South Sudan – Kindness; Surviving and Thriving Together’ explores the importance of Kindness and sharing. To download this free resource follow the link here.
Then you can use Panel One – Kindness of your ‘My Trócaire Box’ to bring what you’ve learned to life – draw a picture, create some abstract art or write a short poem about what Kindness means to you.
What kind deeds can you do for pocket money to help fill your Trócaire box – wash the car, plant some bulbs in the garden or do the dinner dishes all week!
