2022 Peru Virtual Immersion
The Peru Virtual Immersion Program is a three-day immersion designed to meet each schools schedule and to have school involvement in the project. Important also to have other ideas from each school to enhance the immersion experience.
In 2021, 17 homes were built by our Edmund Rice Christian Brothers’ schools from: Australia, Canada, Ireland and the United States.
