FAB Feb - Foróige Against Bullying month - is just around the corner, and we are encouraging Foróige Clubs and Projects to take part!

The aim of FAB Feb is to raise awareness about the issue of bullying, and to help young people to develop the skill to protect themselves.

After being called upon by young people involved in Foróige to do so, we dedicated a month to anti-bullying to enable young people to come up with solutions to help them deal with the issue.

Please encourage young people and volunteers involved with Foróige to get involved in FAB FEB!
