Students Make Presentation on ‘Service Learning’ to Vatican Forum

Feb 2, 2015: Two CUEA students made an online presentation on Service Learning to a Scholar’s forum in Rome on Service Learning also witnessed by Pope Francis.

The two students; Kimberly Mworia and Brian Nzioka made a case for the University’s initiative at the Kuwinda slums referred to as CUEA for Kuwinda.

While briefing the director Centre for Social Justice and Ethics, Sr. Dr. Elizabeth Nduku, Kimberly and Brian said that they were elated to have represented the University albeit online.

The initiative is led by Scholas Occurrentes, promoted by His Holiness Pope Francis and carries out its activities in the area of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences of the Vatican, whose Bishop Chancellor is Monsignor Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo.

Scholas is led by Professors José María del Corral and Enrique Palmeyro, which together with the Bishop Chancellor conform its Pontifical Council. Scholas's mission is to improve education and achieve the integration of communities, with a focus on those with fewer resources, through the commitment of all stakeholders, linking schools and educational networks worldwide from pedagogical, sports and artistic proposals.

In an invitation from Prof. Enrique Palmeyro, Global Director for Scholas Pontifical Council said, “Scholas authorities have taken cognizance of the Service-Learning project called CUEA for Kuwinda. They are evaluating the possibility of incorporating it in the program of Scholas 4th World Congress, which will focus this year on the "Service-Learning as a Strategy for a Pedagogy of Reality”.

The Congress was held in the Vatican between 2 and 5 February. His Holiness Pope Francis closed the forum.
