Brand New Projects and Programs

We're thrilled to announce the launch of two new projects: Public Health in Tanzania and Going Beyond in East Africa.

In Tanzania, we’ve just launched a Public Health Initiative where communities with limited resources benefit significantly from our distribution of public and personal hygiene products. Volunteers share knowledge about how people can keep themselves and their loved ones safe and healthy. 

Going Beyond in East Africa is a gap semester program that takes college students on an African adventure like no other.  You'll experience the local culture in East Africa by living and working in Tanzania and Kenya for six weeks, contributing to conservation and community efforts.

It's a program you can do on its own, or combine with other gap semester modules for a fuller gap year experience.
