Child Soldiers, Human Trafficking, Homelessness – these are just some of the controversial topics the Dumfries Global Education Group have tackled over the last few years.
Raising awareness is the main aim of the 14 to 19 year olds as they feel not enough young people know about how the issues are affecting them.
Homelessness was tackled hands on as they over 40 young people slept outside for 24 hours in Dumfries Town Centre to raise awareness of the problem running workshops together to educate others.
Working with groups around the world, Dumfries Global Education Group are doing what they can to make a difference in their local community.
