Toronto Catholic District School Board


The Newman Lenten Campaign 2020

As part of St John Henry Newman's community outreach, Newman students are asked to donate to the Nelson Mandela Secondary School in Morogoro, Tanzania. The students of Nelson Mandela School have reached out to ask for help in equipping their school's outdoor kitchen. 

Each day senior students in the school make a simple but nutritious lunch for their classmates, most of whom must travel distances of 5 km or more to reach the school. Without the free lunch, many of the students would be unable to attend school.

The Canadian charity, Chalice, has been assisting the Nelson Mandela Secondary School for some time and will act as the agency to link St John Henry Newman Catholic High School with the students of Nelson Mandela Secondary School.

Lent is a time of giving to others - the Newman community is asked to support our Lenten campaign.

Below is a video in which one of the senior students at Nelson Mandela Secondary School describes their work in the feeding program and outlines their needs to continue this activity.
