While participants will primarily be from DENA, the District is now accepting applications from twinning coordinators and administrators in the Region’s other Districts. The two-week program includes an opportunity for participants to share common experiences and hopes for twinning, not only with one another but also with Lasallians in Africa. Participants will visit Child Discovery Centre, Rongai Agricultural and Technical School, Mwangaza College, and St. Mary’s Secondary School and Child Rescue Program. The visits to those twin schools will come after a two-day program organized by the Maryknoll Institute for African Studies, an affiliate of Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, and hosted by Christ the Teacher Institute for Education (CTIE).

The trip will take place Friday, June 20 – Wednesday, July 2, 2014 and applications are due by December 31, 2013. Those selected from DENA will receive notification by January 15, 2014, and those selected from other Districts will be notified by February 15, 2014.
