Outreach Experience

After the daily centering prayer, the Brothers prepared to go to Kibera slum for a day of immersion with the people of this area.  Previously, the Brothers had visited the slum for a day where they experienced the life of Kibera, and saw how people managed to live under such difficult circumstances.  This time, the Brothers went to various schools and projects to spend a day interacting with the youth of Kibera.  It was an inspiring experience and each Brother found great benefit from this direct contact with a people who are courageously and daily confronting the challenges of slum life.

The Brothers were accompanied by volunteers who organise Edmund Rice camps for the children of Kibera.  Their presence was a real addition to the experience, as these same volunteers come from the Kibera slum itself and were able to give the Brothers real insight into the life of the local area.
