One Year in Mission: St. Joseph School in Keren, Eritrea
St. Joseph’s is typically considered the best school in Eritrea. Educational services are provided from nursery school through secondary school. Despite its geographic isolation and the lack of teacher training programs, St. Joseph's School provides high-quality education to 1,657 children. As a Lasallian school, the bonds which the students maintain with the Brothers and with their teachers become a highly-valued part of their academic experience. As such, students often turn to teachers for knowledge, advice and trust . . . even well beyond graduation.
