It is said that greatness is archived through excellence. This was the atmosphere around Hekima University College on 16 June 2020 during the Buechner Awards for the Academic year 2019/2020. The award signifies excellence in various academic and theological endeavors by students from the Jesuit School of Theology (JST) and the Hekima Institute of Peace Studies and International Relations (HIPSIR).
The award is given to any student who distinguished himself or herself through academic writing and in giving homilies. During the award-giving ceremony, the Deputy Principal-Academic Affairs, Rev. Dr. Peter Knox SJ, said that the award “is a way of encouraging Hekima students to put more effort into research and writing and whilst preparing their homilies as well.”
Unfortunately, this year’s award ceremony was celebrated without the full Hekima University College community due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic. However, the smiles were evident as the awardees faces beamed with joy, a sign that they felt encouraged by the school administration.
Pay by bank transfer
If you wish to make a donation by direct bank transfer please contact Fr Paul Hamill SJ email@example.com. 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.
