From the rolling hills of Tanzania's Southern Highlands to the sparkling blue waters of Zanzibar, the shores of the Nile River in Uganda and the fast-paced city life of Rwanda, the Carpe Diem Education East Africa semester will introduce you to an East Africa beyond your imagination - and your stereotypes.
Travel with a small community of like-minded students and two experienced Overseas Educators. Work with organizations throughout Tanzania, Uganda, and Rwanda to gain hands-on experience with topics as varied as health care and HIV/Aids, education, wildlife and land conservation, and organic farming. Work alongside with inspiring local leaders who are dedicated to tackling the issues facing their communities.
Adventure days include safari, rafting the Nile river, trekking through small mountainous communities, and learning to Scuba dive off the shores of Zanzibar. This semester intertwines personal growth with adventure, service, and a greater awareness of the global community.
