Welcome home to our friends, family and colleagues who achieved so much and had life changing experiences in Lesotho. You can relive their journey in Lesotho through the daily videos and blogs here.
Josh Tighe Fitzgerald, Aaron Cullen and Adam Doyle visit Country Crest North County Dublin growers and food producers. Tony Doyle and Country Crest are helping students prepare their project for YSI titled ‘Low Till High Tech’. The project looks at soil types and tilling and seed planting. Country Crest will recycle an old bicycle into a plough and the students will create a soil map of Lesotho.
Visit to Teagasc, Johnstown Castle, Wexford for the study of soil maps.
Congratulations to our Young Social Innovators Ahmed, Ravi, Luke and Colin who came first in the Sage World Cup 2017 in Odessa. Their project was developed from their online mapping of Lesotho and focuses on apps to assist the emergency services. This is a massive achievement for the team and is a result of very hard work and support from their mentors Ms Cronin and Mr Fitzgerald.
