One World Charity Challenge is sponsored by AFD Software Ltd. and coordinated by the One World Centre, Isle of Man.
The Challenge sets out to give Year 12 students a greater understanding of the developing world through researching the work of a charity working overseas. Students working in teams are challenged to choose a charity working overseas, which is either Manx registered or a small UK based charity. Students then research the work of the charity and interview representatives from the charity. They must put together a 10 – 12 minute multi-media presentation which examines the effectiveness of their charity, shows cultural understanding and looks at the impact the charity has had on someone’s life.
A significant amount of money is donated by AFD Software Ltd. for every team that completes the Challenge. These funds are then distributed between the selected charities based on the merits of the student presentations.
