Emphasis is placed on learning through community service, interdisciplinary courses and the engagement of faith, theology, philosophy and ethics studies.
Grounded in the presence of God
What is Jesuit Education?
What is a Jesuit School?
Simply put, Jesuit schools are Catholic high schools and colleges that are run by the Jesuits (members of an apostolic Roman Catholic community known as the Society of Jesus).
Across Africa, there are 20 primary and 30 Jesuit high schools. African Jesuit colleges and universities are part of a network of about 133 Jesuit institutions of higher education in 31 countries around the world.
Promoting quality Jesuit education in Africa and Madagascar
A strong regional network is an important development for our schools in this part of the world but also for our Jesuit Global Network of Schools. Through the Jesuit Association of Secondary and Basic Education in Africa and Madagascar, we are learning that we are stronger and better when we network at all levels (local, national, regional, and global). It allows us to reach new levels of urgency that benefit the service of our mission of justice and reconciliation with God, with humanity, and with creation.
International Association of Jesuit Universities
IAJU is an association of Jesuit Catholic universities and institutes of higher education.
Founded in 2018 and approved by Fr. General, Arturo Sosa, of the Society of Jesus, the IAJU is recognized as the international advisory and coordinating body to the Secretariat of Jesuit Higher Education and, through him, to Father General and his Assistants in matters related to higher education and the intellectual apostolate.
Pay by bank transfer
If you wish to make a donation by direct bank transfer please contact Fr Paul Hamill SJ firstname.lastname@example.org. Fr Paul will get in touch with you about the best method of transfer for you and share account details with you. Donations can be one-off gifts or of any frequency; for example, you might wish to become a regular monthly donor of small amounts; that sort of reliable income can allow for very welcome forward planning in the development of the Society’s works in Africa and Madagascar.
Often it is easier to send a donation to an office within your own country and Fr Paul can advise on how that might be done. In some countries this kind of giving can also be recognised for tax relief and the necessary receipts will be issued.
