Some of DIT’s Erasmus students are arranging a fundraising event in aid of Chifundo as part of their social entrepreneurship module which was introduced by Professor Tom Cooney of DIT. The event will see many of the university’s foreign student’s showcasing their national ethnic cuisines in a night of food, music in DIT’s Cathal Brugha Street buildings. Entry to the event is €5 with all proceeds going to Chifundo. Our sincere thanks organising and participating in the event.
