What students said in 2013:

“We got ideas on how to promote awareness of Caritas in our school and ideas for challenges related to real life events to raise both awareness and money.” Sam, Auckland

“I understand there are a variety of ways in which we can approach social justice issues and I also came to understand the concept of subsidiarity – that we need to view things from the perspective of the people we are attempting to help.” SB Auckland

“The possibility of being able to help people improve their lives.” Peter, Tauranga

“It is important to work alongside the people you are helping, so their dignity is protected.” Anon, Palmerston North

“I can help those in need, I can make a change, act justly, and be a voice for those who need support.” Angelica, Christchurch

“I came here knowing little about Caritas, and I have learnt to lead, support and help out.” Kaylee, Christchurch
