The PACT Legacy
The IEF’s PACT (Promoting A Culture of Trust) Grant Making Programme was first launched in the year 2000 supporting projects in schools of differing management types across Northern Ireland. PACT was open to all schools in Northern Ireland for projects that promoted a culture of trust and the development of paths of reconciliation through education.
The aim of the programme was to fund projects in schools to promote the development of skills, structures and relationships that enable schools, pupils and their parents, staff and governors and the wider community to increase their understanding, acceptance and respect for political, cultural and religious differences.
Over the fourteen year programme, over £1 million has been awarded in grants for 250 projects in 540 schools, directly involving and benefiting over 13,000 children and young people.
PACT has been replaced by The Trust Programme. Click here for details.
