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 launched around the country on the weekend of 6 to 8 April and ran until 20 May. More than 8000 young people took part.
This nationwide event offered hands-on experiences that were fun and informative, and raised funds for Timor-Leste and the women’s livelihood organisation, Hamahon Feto Timor (HAFOTI) that we partner with there.
During the Challenge, youth were encouraged to undertake an activity for 24 hours that brought them closer to the living conditions of those less fortunate.
Thank you to all those that took part this year. Funds are still being collected. We will announce the total raised in the coming weeks.
