The 1st Claretian Educational Exchange (Africa-Europe) has already started

Six CMFF from East Nigeria, West Nigeria, Kenya and Tanzany landed this morning in Madrid, Spain, to attend this program arranged by the General Prefecture of Apostolate in close partnership with the Province of Santiago.

For the next 9 days the participants will have a chance to share about their African context and see how is the evangelization through education going on here.

As "win-win" experience, those who came from Africa and those who host the group will learn and network while journeying together during this exchange. But this is not the end. Next February 2019, a second African group will have similar opportunity. About one year from now, CMFF and teachers from Santiago Province will visit one of Major Organisms from where the participants come from.

Besides this initiative, a great investment has been made to specialize Claretians on this field, dozens of schools have been built in Africa on the last years, and a Congress of Educators began to be organized in Equatorial Guinea and it will happen there in 2020.
