Moise, Kelechi and Winston spoke about their work for CAFOD

Moise Liboto Makuta, Kelechi Emeh and Winston Berrios spoke to pupils at St Peter’s Catholic College about their experiences in Niger, Nigeria and Nicaragua respectively.

The trio all work as Overseas Programme Officers for CAFOD.

Moise and Kelechi talked at length about the impact that climate change is having on the communities where they work and how these communities experience extreme weather conditions such as floods and droughts.

Winston spoke to the schoolchildren about the challenges in Nicaragua to local communities who are being dispossessed of their land by multi-national corporations.

CAFOD representative, David Cross, said: “It was really great to have three CAFOD Overseas Programme Officers visiting St Peter’s.

“All three visitors spoke about how CAFOD’s campaign to bring solar powered energy to isolated communities would really help young people and adults to study long after the natural light has faded.

“The students were given a real insight into the dimensions of CAFOD’s work and the experiences and challenges faced by our partners and their communities.”
