Vincentian Lay Missionaries
Founded in 2002, the Vincentian Lay Missionaries (VLM) aims to support the building of a future for those most in need in the poorest areas of Ethiopia and more recently Nigeria. It also aims to highlight the global issue of poverty, to advocate and to support action for change.
VLM encourages lay people to go out to Ethiopia and experience life there working in partnership with local communities. Miriam Gormally met two students and one teacher who had been out to Ethiopia this year, Niamh West, Orla Cashel and Aidan White. She began by asking Niamh how she decided to go out.
