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, more than 8,000 young people took part in the Caritas Challenge and raised more than $50,000 to support the women's livelihood organization, Hamahon Feto Timor (HAFOTI) that Caritas partners with in Timor Leste.
At the end of November 2018 the 2019 resources will be available and registrations will be open for next year's adventure.
This nationwide event offers hands-on experiences that are fun and informative to raise funds for South Sudan in 2019.
During the Challenge, youth are encouraged to undertake an activity for up to 24 hours that brings them closer to the plight of more than four million South Sudanese who have been displaced from their homes due to ongoing conflict and food insecurity.
