Development Education Talks & Speakers

GOAL speakers are available to visit primary and secondary schools across Ireland to engage students in GOAL's work in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Primary School Pupils Secondary School Students

Our speakers will bring GOAL’s work overseas to life in your classroom through photographs, videos and first-hand experience of our programmes.

Speakers can tailor their session to suit your area of interest and the age group of your class (all classes/year groups catered for) Talks usually last between 40 to 60 minutes but can be tailored to suit the needs of the group. Recommended for groups who are fundraising for GOAL or doing school projects on development or humanitarian issues, e.g. CSPE and LCA Contemporary Issues classes.
