I participated in a program where I completed six months in Zambia, Africa working in Project HOPE. Project HOPE was centered around battling the HIV/AIDS epidemic rampant throughout parts of the continent.
I lived in Ndola and was required to completed tasks and assignments as part of my development instructor project experience.
Now that I think about it, although I put my best foot forward, I wish that I would have even gone further to leave a greater footprint/impact on my project.
My six months preparation was not easy, we were required to fundraise, and plan, and do what was necessary to create opportunity to participate in the project.
I would reccomend these programs to anyone who truly wants to gain an insight to the developing world around him/her and would definitely recommend one world center for being a A-1 location to gain that experience.
