Caritas Australia’s Project Compassion calls on everybody to “Love your neighbour” in 2017.

This year Project Compassion demonstrates how love for our neighbours can transform lives by empowering individuals and communities in five countries around the world.

The education resources that complement these stories will bring this theme to life in your school and classroom, and enable your school community to love their neighbour as themselves this Lent.
