Students choose to attend this immersion in lieu of attending schoolies end of year student celebrations. A 14 day immersion conducting two Edmund Rice Camps for children from the slums, working in schools, visiting ER ministries, including Mary Rice school for handicapped children, advocacy and health programs. Donating IT computer equipment to the Ruben school connects young people in Kenya in cross cultural conversation with our boys at St Edward’s.
Our staff and students reach beyond the borders of our College and country to form relationship with the Edmund Rice family in Kenya. The friendships have endured and the resulting cross cultural understandings remain positive. The fundraising initiatives have resulted in providing much needed funding for essential educational, health and leadership initiatives in several Edmund Rice ministries in Nairobi.
