"Equipping for Life is addressing the serious problem of under achievement in North and West Belfast. It is helping young people to value education through one-to-one mentoring. This programme, the vision of Brother David Jardine, is exciting. It has the potential to bring new hope for an upcoming generation."

Rev. Jim Rea M.B.E.
(former President of the Methodist Church)

“There is nothing more important than ensuring that our children have both the skills and the values to help them through life. It is a privilege for me to be associated with Equipping for Life and I would encourage as many as possible to become involved in practical ways to support the ministry.”
