OTM held a fashion show to mark the UN Day for the Eradication of Poverty 2018 on the 1st of November. The event, “OTM Youth Exposé” featured our youth project as well as members of the primary health care team, who rocked the catwalk with their fashion and amazing creations. In the lead up to the event the young people made their own headpieces in millinery workshops with local milliner Rita Daly to model on the day. They also worked with local choreographer Ciara Jaffray learning the dance routines they performed, and our singers gave beautiful renditions of songs for the audience to savour. The event was a great success and was captured on video below.
