The Caritas Challenge is an annual event for schools and youth groups around New Zealand to demonstrate solidarity with those living with poverty or injustice.
In 2018 the Caritas Challenge will be launched around the country on the weekend of 6 to 8 April and will run until 20 May. Youth can take part at any time during this six-week period.
This nationwide event offers hands-on experiences that are fun and informative, while raising funds for our important work.
During the Challenge, youth are encouraged to undertake an activity for 24 hours that brings them closer to the living conditions of those less fortunate, and there are four challenges to choose from: Move It, Live It, Sweat It and Stop It.
Caritas Challenge 2018 focuses on Timor Leste and the women’s livelihood organisation, Hamahon Feto Timor (HAFOTI) that we partner with there. All funds raised during the Caritas Challenge in 2018 will go towards supporting HAFOTI.
