Children in Crossfire Initiative
Children in Crossfire rep Mark McMahon visited the school on Friday 12th October with guest speaker Abrima Trawalie, Programme Manager of the Children in Crossfire project “Integration of visually impaired children into mainstream education”. Abrima had the opportunity to speak with RE teachers and S2 students about life in The Gambia and also gave an interesting overview of the project.
We aim to ensure the rights of children are protected by supporting organisations to train professional people like teachers, doctors, lawyers, and police; the media and local communities on child rights
Above is the mission statement of the Irish charity 'Children in Crossfire' and one which appeals greatly to the pupils of St Colman's College, Newry.
We thank representatives from 'Children in Crossfire' for attending an information afternoon in the College and for enlightening our pupils on the breadth of their fantastic work with young people across the world.
