Invisible Traffick NI

Invisible Traffick NI celebrate receiving a grant of £4,500 towards Visi’s World Education Programme.

Gayle Bunting, Director of Invisible Traffick NI was presented with a certificate, by Ms. Janine Donnelly, Trustee of the Halifax Foundation at the Halifax Branch, Connswater to celebrate their success in receiving a grant of £4,500 recently.

Ms. Donnelly stated “The Halifax Foundation for Northern Ireland is delighted to support the work of Invisible Traffick NI. The award will go towards the Visi’s World Education programme, which aims to help, protect and educate primary school aged children on the signs and dangers of human trafficking. The programme will be delivered by an experienced facilitator in a sensitive and age-appropriate way. We wish them every success in the programme, raising awareness of a very difficult issue.”

Mrs Bunting stated “Invisible Traffick is overwhelmed to have received this funding from the Halifax Foundation as this will greatly assist us in making a huge impact to our key stage 1 + 2 primary schools pupils. We believe that the education programme will not only assist teachers and schools but also parents and guardians as well. Human Trafficking is a vast growing concern in our local towns and communities, therefore educating our children to stay safe is our key priority. The aim is to reach as many schools across Northern Ireland with our programme, 'Visi’s World'. A version is also available in Irish enabling us to assist Irish speaking schools in equal measure”.

Ms Lynsey McClung, Branch Manager of the Halifax, Connswater stated “The Halifax Foundation for Northern Ireland operate a colleague Matched Giving scheme, matching the volunteering and fundraising efforts of employees supporting local charities. It is my pleasure to facilitate this certificate presentation today, raising the profile of this wonderful charity to colleagues in the branch, and celebrating the work of the Foundation”.
