Students from St Paul's were invited by CAFOD to take part in a short film 'Defend the defenders this Lent!'. The film highlights the situation faced by the indigenous people of the Brazilian Amazon, explaining how more than a football pitch a minute is lost in the Amazon, and suggests football fundraisers to support CAFOD partners’ work there. 

Filming took place in school last year and CAFOD's photographer and videographer captured a series of still and video images showing students' football skills,as well as undertaking other football related activities in the classroom.  They were also filmed talking about the plight of indigenous people in the Brazilian Amazon.

The resources, including suggestions for football themed fundraising activities, are available to schools from the CAFOD website.
