Education Challenges in South Africa

Video and Photos


Participants develop a deeper understanding of and appreciation for South African people, history, and culture that is deeply enriching.

We delve into the history of apartheid, examining both the international actions against the policies as well as how the system created economic imbalances within modern South Africa. Through our partnership with the Calabash Trust, we partner with school and community groups in Port Elizabeth to make lasting connections and ensure a mutually beneficial exchange.

South Africa Trip

Our day to day life in South Africa was pretty busy! We spent the mornings having discussions, cooking breakfast, and preparing for the day ahead. In the afternoon, we often went on trips to different areas in Port Elizabeth, taught at a local school in a township, or both! The evenings were my favorite part because we had deep discussions, ate together, and watched TV shows or movies. It was a great boding experience and if I had the opportunity to do it again, I would without a second thought.

How can this program be improved?
I would make sure that no bullying happens on the trip, because when you're living with people for 3 weeks, that can cause a lot of unnecessary drama and hurt feelings on a trip where one can't leave.
Yes, I recommend this program
