Study Abroad in Africa
Organized by: Rachel Trizna
EVENT DATE Aug 28, 2016
In the fall of 2016 I will be traveling to Europe and Africa with my study abroad program Linking Lives and Creating Sustainable Social Change. While I'm in Europe, I will be taking classes in psychology, business, and communication to build my knowledge of non-profits. While I'm in Africa, my program will either send me in a group in Ethiopia or Rwanda where I'll be teaching students computer skills, English, life skills (how to avoid bullying, etc.), and just getting to know them!
One of the biggest parts of the trip is giving back to the communities; we supply the schools with tablets (for the kids to learn), we do service projects like painting murals, planting trees, leveling crop land, reconstructing libraries, and much more! This program is a life changing experience where we not only really get to impact the lives of the people we meet, they'll change ours as well.
Please help me with this amazing opportunity! Any amount can help, I'm aiming to raise $5000 (flight and lodging costs for 5 weeks) but my goal is to raise as much money to make this trip as impactful as possible!
