Make a difference: Join CAFOD’s gap year programme

If you are finishing school and thinking about a gap year, CAFOD’s Step into the Gap programme could be for you. In this post, we hear from Nicole, who is currently completing a gap year with CAFOD and will going to Uganda in the new year.

 CAFOD’s gap year: “Step into the Gap” 

CAFOD believes in equipping and inspiring young adult leaders to be able to contribute to a more just and peaceful world. That’s why we offer opportunities for 18-30 year olds to gain experience, develop leadership skills and spend a year in the service of others as part of our gap year programme: Step into the Gap.

From speaking in schools and parishes to helping out partner organisations in developing countries, CAFOD’s gap year is a great opportunity for young Catholics to put their faith into act and helping the poorest and most marginalised. The programme allows our ‘gappers’ to inspire others to make a difference.

Applications for September 2019 are now open. Continue reading

Hear stories from the field to inspire you to expand our reach

This Lent, we are seeking to expand our reach. We know we can help more people to live life to the full and to protect our common home. Currently, we are unable to meet 1 in 3 requests for support received from some of the poorest people and communities, simply because we don’t have the funds to do so. Because of our global Catholic network and local presence, we have the potential to reach people and communities others can’t…. But we need your help.

For Lent 2019, join us in our mission to expand our impact.

Up to 40% of mass-goers in England & Wales, do not know who CAFOD are, or what we do. With your help, we can change this in 2019, and give everyone in our diverse community, the opportunity to help the poorest & most disadvantaged across the globe!
