We want to offer students a positive, authentic, fun and life enhancing experiences.  

Our global awareness travel programme aims to achieve this. As we have permanent bases across Sub-Saharan Africa, we can offer students  the opportunity to connect with a project and a community before they travel to visit the same community.

 Before travelling students will complete modules on gender equality, vaccine equity and environmental sustainability, and specifically the impact of these issues on the communities we work with in Africa. Students  address ongoing, real-world scenarios, which allows students to learn through experience. 

Students will then travel to Sub-Saharan Africa, to visit the same communities they have learnt about, to continue their impact on an experiential and culturally immersive experience.   

Our projects in Africa are run full time and year-round and are developed alongside local communities to ensure the work we do is sustainable, responsible, and relevant to the needs of these communities. 

The programme is designed to deliver life long learning outcomes, such as problem solving, resilience and collaboration. It is accrediated by ASDAN, so students can earn curriculum credits, which can support a University application.

We know Africa, we live and breathe it every day. We know our communities, our families, our tribes and our staff. We have built every project hand-in-hand with these communities, meaning it is led and directed by them, which provides an experience that truly transforms communities and, hopefully, your students. 

We are fully financially protected, independent and robust. Bookings are fully flexible, if impacted by COVID. 

Come and join us in Africa!
