“We all shared a common goal and that was to make an impact, to actually make the change that we want to see in the world and I feel this sense of fulfilment now, this inspiration to go out and really do it. It’s a real tribute to EIL Explore that they can transfer such a passion into people like me and I hope to return the favour.” David, 2018
EIL Explore funds overseas intercultural learning adventures which challenge participants to become global citizens.
EIL Explore is a programme that supports participants with an interest in global issues to travel abroad for the purpose of volunteering, cultural immersion, or language education through a variety of awards. Operating for 24 years, 2019 will be our most successful year with a fund of over 140,000 Euros set aside to sponsor 45 Explorers.
Awardees use their experience overseas to learn more about the global community in a supported environment that challenges them to grow personally. The vision is that upon their return to Ireland, Explorers will have grown as individuals and will use this wonderful learning experience to be agents for change in their local community advocating for a more globally just society.
