Catholic Mission's advocacy work for children aims to raise global issues of concern for children locally, and internationally at the United Nations forum.
Our current Advocacy campaign for children is aimed at ending immigration detention of children. The issue and action is outlined in our World Mission Month Schools’ Resource.
Catholic Mission has formed a coalition of Church and non-government organisations led by the Australian Young Christian Students Movement to support this initiative. Visit the End Child Detention Australia website: www.endchilddetention.org
Catholic Mission also runs immersion programs with various Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in rural and remote areas to help build a better understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, traditions, culture, spirituality and history.
We especially support the work of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Catholic Council (NATSICC) www.natsicc.org.au.
