Only 3 sleeps to Africa day.
So how do you get there?
Well Dublin Bus runs free shuttle buses bringing you from the entrance of Phoenix Park to Farmleigh. http://www.vikingsplash.com/

These buses will run from the bus stop opposite the main entrance to Phoenix Park at Parkgate Street and will drop people close to the entrance to Farmleigh. Remember to check out the Gorta stand to win cool prizes like free passes for Dublin Splash tours

4 more sleeps to Africa Day!
There will be an ‘African Bazaar’ with stalls from over 20 different African countries, offering food, drumming, dance, hair-braiding, henna hand-painting, traditional fashion designs, and lots more. Gorta will be present in the bazaar, offering fun activities like Face-painting while the African embassies in Ireland will also be represented at the event. http://www.gorta.org/news/africa-day
Africa Day, designated by the African Union as an annual celebration of the continent’s unity, falls on 25th May each year.  Celebrations to mark the day occur across the globe: in some African states, it is a designated national holiday, while in diverse cities – such as New York, London and Washington – academic gatherings and cultural showcases mark the day.

Introduction

Based in Dublin, Gorta is Ireland’s longest established not-for-profit development agency and was set up in 1965. Our focus has always remained on long term sustainable projects which we complete with partner organisations on the ground in our target countries.

Building on these 50 years of experience, at Gorta, we have evolved from our earlier agricultural-based model to a more comprehensive approach to modern development. This includes maximising the potential of these hard-pressed communities through skills exchange and the encouragement of innovation and entrepreneurship.
