This 25-hour fast is an interactive learning experience for youth who are passionate about social justice.
Fasting is part of Catholic tradition. It is a spiritual practice and a way to stand in solidarity with the hungry, poor, and oppressed. Development and Peace – Caritas Canada encourages you to reach out to staff should you need support, guidance or inspiration when planning your event.
You can download the Organizer Toolkit and learn about activities that can provide hands-on experiences of the issues surrounding poverty and injustice.
