In this workshop, participants act on what they think and believe. Using excerpts from Girls are Our Future by Sister Cyril, Neil Farrelly, and Greg Dale, participants will read, digest, and discuss various current humanitarian issues such as Charity v Development, Failure & Success, What’s Education for, Giving it all away and the environment.

MS GIN Manila 2019 was a fantastic success – and the credit goes to you. Your contributions were the substance and merit of the conference. Thank you for bringing your passion, enthusiasm, and expertise to our students. In speaking with students and teachers we heard overwhelmingly positive responses… We spoke with several teachers who are GIN veterans and they told us that this is the best conference they had been to because of the quality and variety of workshops and speeches. We had 152 participants from 14 schools attending over 60 workshop sessions, and 5 keynote speeches! Erin Leininger, ISM, Manila.
