Amazing Experience

This program is a definite must for those would are interested in conflict restoration and peace building. We stayed with local families, increasing our cultural exposure. The program staff is also extremely helpful and attentive. There are lots of opportunities to explore the cities and meet people. Life-changing, great experience.

What would you improve about this program?
If I could change one thing, it would be to increase the length of the program. I wish I had more time to spend in cities that I loved so much. If you have the ability and the passion, the semester program might be the best answer!
Yes, I recommend this program
