Project Common Bond in Belfast

Project Common Bond is a programme developed by Tuesday’s Children, which itself is an organisation created to support the families of 9/11. Project Common Bond serves children worldwise who have lost a family member in an act of terrorism or violence.

Project Common Bond brings together teenagers from around the world for community building exercises.

This year, the group travelled to Northern Ireland.

On 5th August, a reception for the participants was hosted by the Commissioners of Belfast Harbour, at their historic office building.

The Lord Mayor of Belfast, Pat Convery, welcomed the participants and guests, followed by several short speeches by some participants and programme partners.
