Every summer, for the past five years, students from St. Vincent’s Castleknock College have been volunteering in Ambo, Ethiopia. Eight students, with teachers and pastmen deliver a two and a half week summer programme to children and teenagers in the Vincentian compound in Ambo. As the English language is a requirement for Ethiopian students hoping to access higher education, this summer camp is a much valued opportunity to learn and practice with native speakers.
