The Society of St Vincent de Paul has been engaging with young people and education since its earliest days.
This Society helps people who are facing problems such as:
◾Poverty: not enough money to pay for basic necessities.
◾Hunger: some families have only one meal per day if they are lucky.
◾Unemployment: sometimes parents have to go out every day and search for work.
◾No home or poor quality housing: some families of 8 or more live in one room.
◾No education: some families cannot pay for schooling or children cannot go to school because they need to work to help their parents feed the family.
Our Mini Vinnies team was established in 2015, and since then we have supported many charities and our school friends by organising prayer and reflection opportunities across the year, particularly during Lent and Advent. We have our own jobs within our team and we love having this special responsibility! We intend to live by our moto of ‘Turning Concern into Action’.
