An Immersion Experience

Today the Brothers went on an immersion experience to Kibera slum where over one million live in great poverty.

The day began with a visit to Mary Rice Centre, an initiative of the Christian Brothers, which caters for children and young people with a variety of disabilities.

Then, the Brothers were accompanied by the Edmund Rice Kibera Group volunteers who took the Brothers on a walk through Kibera and invited them to visit families who live in the slum.  The level of poverty is quite evident, and yet the people are so friendly and willing to share their experiences of life.

In the afternoon, the Brothers meet with the principals of some schools in the slum as well as with people who are involved with social outreach in the area.
