Location: Wolfington Hall 2nd floor Conference Room Map

Breaking Bread is a shared meal with table fellowship and conversation about ways to care for orphaned and vulnerable children. A one-time shared ritual meal, Breaking Bread creates space for community reflection and discussion, giving everyone at the table a chance to imagine what it means to care for children who have lost – or are at risk of losing – family care. The conversation included facilitated discussion questions, quotations from spiritual and social justice traditions, and images to encourage deep conversation about ethics, values, policies, and actions.

This event was co-sponsored by the Collaborative on Global Children's Issues; Walsh School of Foreign Service; Center for Child and Human Development; Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching and Service; Global Human Development Program; Global Health Institute; Office of Mission and Ministry; Global Culture of Safeguarding Program, Georgetown University; and Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics at Georgetown University in partnership with Catholic Relief Services and Helping Children Worldwide. It was part of the Children in a World of Challenges Workshop series.
