The Global Impact of Jesuit Education

A good story from Vatican Radio about the impact of a Jesuit education initative:

Since its inception in 2010, Jesuit Commons: Higher Education at the Margins (JC:HEM) has been building distant learning higher education programs for more than 2,000 refugees and poor in Kenya, Malawi, Chad, Syria, Afghanistan, Jordan, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Taungyyi and the Philippines.  Dozens of Jesuit and other universities in the U.S. and abroad are partnering in the initiative which helps prepare people for careers as teachers, in business entrepreneurship and health services.
