Three years ago, 14-year-old Proscovia’s hope of finishing school and becoming an engineer was almost dead. But thanks to your support through CAFOD, her dream is now alive.
This Lent, we have an opportunity to come together as a Catholic community to ensure girls living in the world’s poorest countries are free to change their lives by getting an education. CAFOD is working with local expert organisations around the world to bring water to family homes, so girls who used to spend hours collecting it every day, now have time for school, study and to play with their friends.
Fast Days are our opportunity to support that vital work. Collect your Fast Day envelope from church this week, and remember to fast on Lent Fast Day.
And there is very good news: the UK government has promised to match every pound and penny you give this Lent!
Please give as much as you can [in next week’s collection], so that more girls around the world are able to live lives free from the burden of the long walk for water.
