Slí Eile volunteers go far and wide
After ten months of preparation, more than 30 young adults are setting off across the world on Slí Eile volunteer programmes. One group will leave on 2 July for St Ann’s Jesuit Parish, Kingston, Jamaica – an inaugural event for Slí Eile, which has never run programmes there before. On 4 July, another group will head off for Lusaka, Zambia, and a third group will depart the following day for Bogotá, Colombia. One other initiative run by Slí Eile this year is a two-week volunteering programme for a group of 14 young solicitors from Arthur Cox, a leading law firm, who flew out to Mwandi, Zambia, on 29 June, accompanied by Slí Eile’s Patricia O’Connor.
