MSD Ireland has announced that the recipient of their Neighbour of Choice grant for 2023, worth over €100,000, is VOICE Ireland, an environmental charity that empowers individuals and local communities to take positive action to conserve our natural resources. VOICE is the NGO expert in Ireland on waste reduction and circular economy.

VOICE Ireland’s Picker Pals schools programme is an initiative designed to support and enable primary school children to become sustainability advocates from a young age, working with 7 – 9 year-old school children across 1184 schools in Ireland to provide them with the tools and opportunities to help their communities become greener now and into the future.

Mindy O’Brien, CEO of VOICE Ireland, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with MSD Ireland for 2023 to support our Picker Pals school’s programme. This is an important initiative specially designed to get children excited about sustainability from a young age, helping them to feel empowered by championing green practices with their own families and communities. MSD Ireland’s support has allowed us to significantly expand the programme to a further 174 schools around the country this year, allowing us to further our reach nationally. We are very excited to continue our work with MSD Ireland throughout the year and beyond, working towards a more sustainable future for all.”
