Community Action Projects; The Latin American Children’s Trust

This year we supported five charities from varying sectors, all nominated by members of the UCS Community.

Aims

The Latin American Children’s Trust: this trust’s aim is the relief of poverty, distress and hardship and to promote the education, health and welfare of children and other members of families with children in Latin America.

Background

There are assemblies held to promote the charities and events, as well as the support of tutors and the pastoral network to give students the confidence to take on the challenge of having ownership of their fundraising.

Resources

Students learn about issues that affect their own community as well as wider national and international issues. This project allows students to get actively involved in charity work through a safe and structured environment, paving the way for them to become further involved and giving them the skills needed to make sensible choices about their contributions to society in years to come.

Impact

Pupils from across the Senior School are invited to take part, with Committee members drawn from all years and events held in every corner of the school.

Pupil Involvement

All pupils of all ages, instigated by pupils for their own community action ideas and projects.

Frequency

 

Ongoing events throughout the year.
