Sr Sarah Clarke Award

Category: SchoolsYouth

Congratulations to Indira Kelly from Seamount College, Kinvara, who won the Inaugural Sr Sarah Clarke Award for her project analysing the fast fashion industry using the tenets of Catholic social teaching. The award was devised by Mia Joyce-Walsh, Youth Ministry Coordinator for Galway Diocese to honour Galway-born social justice advocate Sr Sarah Clarke and to help secondary school students engage with Catholic social teaching. Indira’s project researched the ethical issues relating to fast fashion and raises awareness of the need for fairness and human dignity in all aspects of clothing manufacture, sale and purchase.
