The Saphara Be The Change Project

Be The Change Schools is a unique educational programme which empowers and equips sixth form pupils in Northern Ireland to support Newcomer children in NI with low levels of English literacy living in socio-economically disadvantaged areas. Through this, sixth form pupils have the chance to make a difference in their lives by acting as a buddy and engaging in year-long activities and fundraising.

We are delighted to announce our Saphara Be the Change Award participants for this year: (L-R) Aoife O'Kane, Carys Patton, Rebekah Thompson, Katie Toms, Nathaniel Wylie, Andrea Juby, Faith Pateman and Natalia Dzieciatko.

In December the team had their first initial workshop, hosted by St Malachy's College Belfast. They are now looking forward to starting fundraising projects throughout the year. Watch this space!
