Next Gone Fishing Immersions are 3 to 13 June 2018 and 7 to 17 October 2018



Gone Fishing is an East-African immersion program aimed at connecting present and future decision makers in corporate Australia with the people of Africa. This program centres upon a 12 day immersion visiting various projects supported by the Edmund Rice Foundation.

Gone Fishing provides a unique opportunity for individuals who are looking to attend a meaningful and challenging international professional development program. The program seeks to harness and further develop the leadership, management and interpersonal skills of each attendee whilst at the same time presenting the human face of Africa with all its vibrancy and complexity.

The Gone Fishing program is aimed at men and women who have influence over the decision-making structures that will determine the world of tomorrow. The Edmund Rice Foundation in recognising this reality, seeks to provide an opportunity for business people to immerse themselves in the development projects of East Africa. Our hope is to inspire, challenge and engage each participant to be agents for change in their own community and to motivate others to support the impoverished and disempowered on their own doorstep.

The hope of the program is one of a connection – it is not a fund raising initiative.
