Piper's Hill College stars in SERVE SDG Champions School Programme

Posted on 3 May 2022

We believe in the power of development education for young people to empower them to become active Global Citizens. For many years, SERVE has enjoyed a special connection with students and teachers in schools across Ireland. Our immersion programmes in South Africa, Mozambique and Zambia allowed us to engage with young people and help them become active global citizens.  

Our SDG Champions School Programme allows us to continue the invaluable connection with schools despite the ongoing pandemic. This programme aims to provide young people with an opportunity to learn about the world around them and their role in it as well as the steps they can take to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.  

Under the programme, students may apply to be part of their schools SDG Champions Team. On the Team, they have the opportunity to partake in challenges, training, and activities and be champions of change in their own school community. Schools are supported along the way by the SERVE team and the SDG Champions Team members all receive a certificate of recognition of their steps towards becoming a more active global citizen.  

This week we would like to highlight the fantastic work done by the SDG Champions Team in Piper's Hill College, Naas, Kildare. Piper's Hill is signed up to the Pen Pals Project for which their pupils write letters to pupils in Zambia. The SDG Champions Team ran a relay marathon to fundraise for our vital work abroad. They have truly proven themselves to be Global Citizens!
