About 60 million people around the globe have been forced to leave their homes to escape war, violence and persecution. The majority have become Internally Displaced Persons, meaning they fled their homes but are still in their own countries. Others, referred to as refugees, sought shelter outside their own country. But what does that term really mean?
Benedetta Berti and Evelien Borgman explain in a TED-ED lesson.
I’m very pleased to announce that New Horizon has been registered as a charity with the Charities Regulator. See here for more details.
All charities operating in the Republic of Ireland must be fully registered on the Register of Charities. It is an offence for an unregistered charitable organisation to carry on activities in the State.
This is a very considerable step forward for the organisation. It establishes and documents a management structure, and records our child protection and data protection policies.
This makes it much easier to succeed in funding applications in future. Funders can be assured of the NH’s stability and that funded tasks will be performed to a high standard.
I’d like to thank everyone involved with the application and everyone who has worked so hard for New Horizon over the years. Special thanks to Chris McDermott and Teresa O’Hara who worked so tirelessly on getting the application prepared and approved.
There are 9 centres around Ireland taking part in this consultation and there will be a residential in October where 25 young people will be chosen to help with a creative element to the consultation.
We are holding a consultation in Athlone in July. There will be an information session for 13-17 year olds and their parents on Tuesday 23rd July at 3.30-4.30pm in the Centres’ Community Hall.
The following day, Wednesday 24th July, we will hold the consultation focus groups between 11am – 3.30pm which is just open to the 13-17 year olds.
If you are a young person living in Direct Provision this is an opportunity to have your say on a wide range of issues. Everyone welcome!
