Self Help Africa has teamed up with a network of Loreto Secondary Schools from across Ireland to produce the third in its award-winning series of books on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
The third book in the ‘Twenty Fifteen’ series is underway, with students from the following Loreto Schools – Beaufort, Balbriggan, Dalkey, Swords, Kilkenny, Coleraine, Omagh Navan, Letterkenny and Fermoy. This MDG book is looking at the issue of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment. All of the students involved have participated in workshops on gender, organised by Self Help Africa’s development education unit.
Self Help Africa’s Development Education Coordinator, Patsy Toland spoke on the subject at the Loreto Schools’ Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation Conference, both last year and at the Seminar in Emmaus this year – October 2012. Some final work was done on the book which is shortly due for publication. It will be the culmination of work done throughout the year by Loreto Schols on Millennium Goal Three.

Loreto Schools In Ireland – Justice, Peace & Integrity of Creation – Schools Reports 2011/2012
Message from the Education Desk
Are you curious to know about the ‘four foot garden’ in the Kingdom in the Sky or to know about ‘purple letters’? Can you make the connection between kidnapping of students by their class mates, nail painting and active teaching methodologies? Your questions will be answered in the pages of these varied and interesting reports.
The school reports of 2011/2012 make for excellent reading. It is remarkable to see how the ideas generated at the Annual Conference in October have been put into practice. The children and teachers in the primary schools have done excellent work in a very short time especially considering that JPIC was not launched in the primary schools until April 2011.
Rumbek, and Millennium Development Goal 3 have featured frequently in this year’s report following the agreement at the annual conference to take a network approach to awareness raising while putting the focus on a Loreto school in Sudan, a school which is part of the Irish Province!
