Oakhill has launched this year's Ration Challenge and, so far, have 40 senior Lasallian Youth Leader students and a few hearty teachers signed up to complete the annual Ration Challenge.
The last year has been a challenging year for young people. They have felt the effects of coronavirus personally, and many have also worried about the devastating impact it had on vulnerable people worldwide.
The Ration Challenge gives students the power to do something about it.
By putting themselves in the shoes of a refugee for one week, students learn about current global issues, develop empathy for others and feel empowered to make a difference in the world.
From Sunday 13 June to Thursday 17 June, students will eat the same rations as a Syrian refugee. The money raised will provide emergency food, healthcare and life-saving support for people hit hardest by the coronavirus. And by sharing their experience, they'll help create more empathy and compassion in society.
Oakhill College students are empowering the world to change through the Ration Challenge.
