The Caritas Challenge is an annual event for schools and youth groups around New Zealand to demonstrate solidarity with those living with poverty or injustice.
In 2017 the Caritas Challenge was launched around the country on the weekend of 31 March to 2 April and ran until 14 May. Youth could take part at any time during this six-week period.
This nationwide event offers hands-on experiences that are fun and informative, while raising funds for our important work.
During the Challenge, youth are encouraged to undertake an activity for 24 hours that brings them closer to the living conditions of those less fortunate, and there are four challenges to choose from: Move It, Live It, Sweat It and Stop It.
Caritas Challenge 2017 focused on our neighbours in the Pacific and the challenges they face as a result of climate change. All funds raised during the Caritas Challenge in 2017 will go towards supporting the people of Kiribati.
