Frontiers of Justice, Travelogue

Frontiers of Justice

A partnership between CRS and the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA)

The past ten years CRS and NCEA have offered an experience of global solidarity to Catholic high school teachers through the Frontiers of Justice (FOJ) program. For two weeks each summer, FOJ participants learn firsthand the issues faced by people in the developing world through interactions with people involved in CRS programs in education, health, agriculture, community banking and peacebuilding.    During the trip, participants pray and reflect on their experiences through the lens of Catholic Social Teaching as they discern how the experience can enhance their educational ministry.   

Frontiers of Justice returns to West Africa this year! The group will travel through Burkina Faso and Ghana from June 28 to July 13, 2008.  Join this year’s FOJ journey by visiting this travel log — see pictures of  the places they visit, meet the people they encounter on their journey, read first-hand reflections and become part of their stories of solidarity.

This year’s Frontiers of Justice participants are:

Accompanying them on the journey are:

    I am a CRS/Ghana veteran from the early years and still use the experience to enrich my life and that of my students. If transportation is provided by CRS please ask if my old friend Andrews Nyakote is one of the drivers. Let him know I inquired. Enjoy, learn, pray and keep the Club Beer cold. mike hattman

    Hello Richard,
    May angels watch over you, and guide you. I want to say your English is perfect. I am a retired teacher, so I’ve seen plenty of imperfect English. Do not worry —I would love so much to come and help others learn English.
    If I can help in any way, please do not hesitate to let me know. I will be praying for you.
