One Year in Mission Together: Asmara Maekel, Eritrea
In recognition of One Year in Mission Together, we focus this week on Asmara Maekel, Eritrea. "Despite social and political limitations, the Institute for Religious Studies (IRS) provides university-level instruction to both lay people and religious. Given the great necessity for quality university education, it accepts young people interested in developing expertise in the fields of management and administration, pedagogy, and computer science. The IRS certification is highly valued in both Eritrea and Kenya, thanks to recognition of the coursework by CUEA, the Catholic University of Eastern Africa."
