Lenten Charities

Our Lenten Charities this year are Smile Train and Jubilee Action, chosen in consultation with our Pupil Council.

Unlike many charities that do many different things, The Smile Train is focused on solving a single problem: cleft lip and palate.
  Clefts are a major problem in developing countries where there are millions of children who are suffering with unrepaired clefts. Most cannot eat or speak properly. Aren’t allowed to attend school or hold a job. And face very difficult lives filled with shame and isolation, pain and heartache.
  The good news is every single child with a cleft can be helped with surgery that costs as little as £150 and takes as little as 45 minutes.
  This is our mission:
    -To provide free cleft surgery for millions of poor children in developing countries.
    -To provide free cleft-related training for doctors and medical professionals.
  Until there are no more children who need help and we have completely
eradicated the problem of clefts.

Jubilee Action began in 1992. It was developed from the human rights political lobbying organisation Jubilee Campaign, in order to raise funds to help children at risk whilst fighting for their rights.
