Welcome to the Zambian Immersion Project

The Immersion Programme focuses on providing students and teachers of the Christian Brothers’ schools in Ireland with an opportunity to visit a developing world setting in a spirit of “being with people”. In so doing they become aware of the issues associated with poverty and justice in both the developed and developing world. The Immersion Programme was established in 1999 and has been expanding across the network in Ireland ever since.

Groups comprising 6-15 senior students and accompanying teachers from Christian Brothers’ secondary schools travel to India, Zambia or Bolivia to work with orphans, street children, people with disabilities, the aged, early school-leavers and also assist with community projects. 34 schools are now participating in the Programme – the largest such programme in Ireland.
