St. Joseph is well known as the patron saint of workers and at St. Joseph’s on Cadogan Street, the pupils have been working hard to raise funds for CAFOD.

Throughout Lent, they have held a variety of events, collections and activities resulting in over £190 being raised. This will be used by CAFOD to help people to work their way out of poverty.

One way this is done is to give people training in new techniques. In Kenya, people are being taught how to capture and make the best use of water. Previously there were downpours that flooded and ran off the land leaving poor and eroded soil that made it ever harder to grow a decent crop. Now the people are digging irrigation channels and building dams to store the rains, so although they come more irregularly, it makes a great improvement in food production.
