This is a comprehensive work-study program on global poverty. You will learn about the conditions of the billions of people living in poverty and how it affects their health, education, freedom, economic opportunity.
During the first six months you will begin preparation on campus. You will take courses on irrigation, sanitation, HIV/AIDS prevention, and why there is so much poverty in the world. You will also work with practical studies with farming, building water tanks, cleaning water and much more.
The next six month service period you and your team will travel to your project run by Humana People to People. You will work with the communities to educate and empower them to change and better their lives. You will use all of the skills you learned in the first period to use.
During the third and final six month period, you will work together with your team to create a final project back on campus. You and your team will then bring your final project to the public.
