Kenya Service Trip 2017 Kenya Service Trip 2017 Kenya Service Trip 2017 Kenya Service Trip 2017

Regis students and staff embarked on a service-immersion experience to Kenya. The group spent a week in the village of Kisumu and served in the Manyatta slum. Throughout the week, students and staff volunteered at the local primary schools teaching about hygiene to prevent the spread of disease and infection. The students were taught the most effective ways to wash their hands and brush their teeth with the little clean water that they have available. Thanks to generous donations, Regis was able to provide toothbrushes to the students. Regis students and staff also held a clean-up day with over 500 locals to clean the Manyatta slum. All of the youth that assisted with the clean-up could participate in a soccer tournament hosted by Regis with soccer uniforms donated by US Soccer. At the end of the trip, Regis students and staff went on a safari. The Kenya service-immersion experience was truly life changing for all participants.

In the spirit of the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph, the Center for Ministry and Service at Regis seeks to offer students the opportunity to serve our “Dear Neighbor”. The service programs offered by the Center for Ministry and Service provide students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to stand in solidarity with our Dear Neighbors who find themselves living on the margins of our society. Every year the Center for Ministry and Service offers opportunities for local, national, and international service and immersion trips. These experiences serve as inspiration to everyone who chooses to commit to this type of work and they would not be possible without the outpouring of support from the Regis community. This past year our students, faculty, and staff served in:

  • Los Angeles, CA
  • New Orleans, LA
  • Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation, SD
  • Villa El Salvador, Lima - Peru
  • Diriamba, Managua - Nicaragua
  • Manyatta Slum, Kisumu - Kenya

We also offer opportunities for local service in our Greater Boston community. If you are interested please call 781-768-7027, visit the Center for Ministry & Service in St. Joseph Hall Room 4. We would love to have you join us!
