About Program

Immerse yourself in African village life as you join extraordinarily welcoming local people to volunteer on community-initiated projects with a focus on public health. Rwanda is a small, lush, and mountainous East African nation with a tragic history and progressive approaches to development. Collaborate with NGOs and meet with medical professionals to survey a diversity of health services. Assist community members in construction projects and explore how how work impacts the global community and our own lives in this complex and beautiful country.
