Coming up on Global Village this weekend

 

Did you know that the number of children being home-schooled in Ireland has almost doubled in five years? Is it something you would consider?  We take a closer look at the idea with Pauline O'Reilly of the Homeschool Education Network Ireland and Cora McCauley a Homeschooling parent.   

The Dublin Rape Crisis Centre handles thousands of calls each year and offers support and therapy services to victims of rape or sexual assault.  A number of volunteers are required to assist staff in the running of this vital service.  The organisation is currently looking for volunteers to joins them in helping those most in need. We are joined by Noeline Blackwell, CEO of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre and Niamh McDonnell, a volunteer to discuss what it takes to volunteer. 

Finally did you know that almost 20 babies were born into homelessness in Ireland?  We look at the impact of homelessness on our children.

That and much more from 7pm on Saturday night.
