This year, three students are taking the bus every day to go to school: Pascal Imani Kapilimba originally from DRCongo studying at the PISAI and Gilles Efiyo from DRCongo and Evariste Some from Burkina Faso, both at the Gregorian. Note that Evariste was Parish Priest at Serenje, Zambia up to 2013.

See the site of the famous Gregorian with a visit conducted by Evariste through the streets of Rome. Look at the beautiful architecture of the main building built between 1927 and 1930.

The Pontifical Gregorian University (From wikipedia.org)

Originally founded as the Collegio Romano in 1551 by Saint Ignatius of Loyola over 460 years ago, the Gregorian University was the first university founded by the Society of Jesus, otherwise known as the Jesuits. Its present name was given by Pope Gregory XIII. Containing faculties and institutes of various disciplines of the humanities, the Gregorian has one of the largest and most distinguished theology departments in the world, with over 1600 students from over 130 countries.
