Study abroad in Debre Zeyit, Ethiopia with Blessing the Children International! This study abroad program is much more than the traditional standard that so many follow. To start, the program incorporates 15-25 hours of community building work along with a class schedule of three to four courses. Varying by semester, course options have included language arts, religious studies, Ethiopian history and culture studies.
Students will be fully immersed in the Ethiopian culture during their home-stay with a local host family. The Ethiopian people are genuinely friendly and welcoming to visitors, which makes it easier to adapt to living in a completely foreign environment and culture. Requirements of potential students include a high level of maturity and resourcefulness along with an interest in community participation.
