National College of Ireland 4th Pin Day Street Collection – Students Supporting Students

Do you know that students from the National College of Ireland have fundraised for four years in the K.I.D.S. ‘Students Supporting Student’s Project to raise the grant aid for a college student in Argentina? Her name is Lorena Nunez and she is studying social work and also undertaking volunteer work for the Toba community K.I.D.S. project.

A big thank you to the National College of Ireland students, staff, faculty and visitors for supporting this fundraiser. It is in the spirit of fellowship of ‘students supporting students’ that Ciara, Esosa and Ruairi from the Service Learning Module supported by their lecturer Susan Duggan organized the pin day fundraising event in the college on the 3rd of April 2014. We also would like to thank all volunteers who helped with the fundraising around the IFSC area on the day. Students raised €500 which represents half of the annual support to Lorena for helping her with the costs of going to college – transport, books and food, they will continue to fundraise to reach their €1000 target.  Find out on Facebook how she is doing and how important is this grant for herhttps://www.facebook.com/LorenaNunezKidsArgentina?fref=nf.
