NEW YORK, 1975.
Patrick and Denis Mulcahy, County Cork natives and police officers in the NYPD, watch news footage of the violence in the north of Ireland... and Project Children is born.
Over the next 40 years, 23,000 Catholic and Protestant children would travel from Northern Ireland to America during the Summer months, as respite from the conflict.
Belfast playwright, Fionnuala Kennedy, has documented this extraordinary intervention through interviews with participants, host families and the passionate volunteers involved with Project Children, the people who gave their time, so that our young people might have the opportunity to see another world outside of the conflict, creating a better future for us all.
'Project Children' is a powerful reminder of how activism and radical kindness can positively change the lives of children and young people.
