A visit from the Right Hon. Patricia Scotland, Secretary General of the CommonWealth

On the 25th of March 2021 Centre was honoured to receive the Right Hon. Patricia Scotland, Secretary General of the CommonWealth . The Secretary General who represents 2.4 billion people in the 54 commonwealth countries spent over three hours at the centre touring the facility and meeting all our children and staff at their various workstations.

Her visit confirms that we are on the right path and resonates very well with our Director's call to make children and youth living with disability a priority because it is difficult to remain indifferent when we see ,feel and touch this reality.

Our Director on behalf of the Sons of Divine Providence and the Centre expressed his gratitude to her for the visit and for spending quality time with us and he highlighted the need for more leaders to be like her : humble, human and practical. Her response was and “we need more leaders like your Fr. And more institutions like this where children are loved and valued."

This was powerful!

We thank God for you Fr Alex and the entire Orione Community Training Centre family
