Introduction to Development Education

Introduction

As a child I was fuelled with wonder about the world I could not comprehend the injustices presented through the daily news. Famine in Ethiopia, war in Somalia, orphanages in Bosnia or Romania was aired through RTE in my kitchen as a steady stream of unpalatable TV images and gritty radio documentaries. At a young age I began to ask God why? So, I have always had an inquiring mind and an interest in all things spiritual. This has lead me to retreat work, post primary teaching, working with Trócaire and now as Development Education Coordinator in IJMO.
