Celebrating 50 years

In 1964 a small group of American participants commenced EIL Intercultural Learning's fifty-year journey when they arrived on Irish shores on the first ever EIL programme. Fifty years later, EIL Intercultural Learning has been responsible for approximately 40,000 participants travelling to 52 different countries on its intercultural programmes. To celebrate our 50th Anniversary, we decided to take some time to mark the many people, friendships, stories, programmes and achievements that make the organisation what it is today.

Take a look at the celebratory events, activities and moments that made 2014 so special for EIL Intercultural Learning.
