Trócaire 2013Next Wednesday, February 13th marks the beginning of Lent 2013 and, as usual, the Trócaire charity has produced some great classroom resources to coincide with the season of Lent. India is the focus of the resources this year and there are separate resources for Junior Primary pupils, Senior Primary pupils, Post-Primary pupils and resources as Gaeilge for Gaelscoileanna. The resources provide pupils with information, lessons, photos and activities that explore Trócaire’s work through the lens of India.

The resources examine global justice and human rights issues through active engagement.

There is a wealth of resources on the Trócaire website for teachers to explore – resources that will cover many strands of different curricular areas. As well as hints, tips and ideas on how to use the resources in the classroom, there are also multimedia resources like videos and slideshows to bring lessons alive in the classroom.

This Trócaire video tells about Ambika and her community in Jhilligoan.
