The Irish Jesuit Missions (IJM) is linked with Jesuit managed schools and education works in Africa and Asia. Funds raised by IJM regularly go towards supporting the various projects of these schools. If you would like to donate please click here
Jesuit schools are intended to be communities of life, work and worship both at home and abroad. Pupils are encouraged to respect and care for one another as friends and companions, in God’s service. Jesuit students are encouraged to understand their own ‘place’ in the world, in terms of educational and socio-economic opportunities, and to use these opportunities in the compassionate service of others with the approach: “Men and women for others”.
Teaching roles are not limited to the Jesuits in these schools. Many of the staff in the schools consists of lay people working as teachers and support staff. All of the Jesuit education works contribute to SDG 4:’ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning’ of the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.
