THANK YOU TO OUR CHILDREN’S HOUR HEROES AT
To all the staff at Avista thank you for being Children’s Hour Heroes!
Together you raised an amazing €1080.08 for children living in disadvantaged areas. Your support will help children across Ireland out of poverty and provide them with a brighter future.
HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF HOW YOUR SUPPORT WILL HELP CHILDREN ACROSS IRELAND:
Funds a school completion programme for 22 children for one school term who otherwise would be at immediate risk of early school leaving.
Covers the costs for 11 children to have access to a safe comfortable space for six months with a hot meal and the opportunity to complete their homework with extra supports.
Funds a programme for 5 teen parents living in severe disadvantage supporting them to reach their Leaving Cert, access employment opportunities and provide positive life experiences for them and their babies.
If you would like to learn more about the young people the IYF supports take a look at our three part docuseries A Stitch in Time which saw musician and Other Voices presenter MayKay travel around Ireland to talk to young people about their experiences over the last two years.
