LearnServe Abroad is an 8-month program introducing participants to social entrepreneurship with a global perspective. Participants learn about international development and cross-cultural communication in monthly training sessions. The LearnServe trip is the centerpiece of the program, and a life-changing experience, that helps to put theory into perspective. More than a “study abroad” or “three-week tour,” LearnServe’s programs in Zambia, Paraguay, Jamaica, and South Africa are active, engaging, and rigorous – intellectually, culturally, and physically.
Students and teachers experience the realities of day-to-day life through peer exchanges and collaborative work with community-based organizations. They return home to share what they have learned with their schools and motivate their school communities to donate funds, supplies, and other support to communities abroad.
As students on this trip, most of us have already been generously awarded scholarships, but need an average of $2,000 each to participate in the program. Your purchase will allow us to empower ourselves and the Zambian people to create change and keep the ripple effect going. There are more details of what we will specifically be doing in Zambia on the LearnServe website: learn-serve.org
We are immensely thankful for your purchase and all proceeds will go towards our trip! We will be sure to send out photos and journal entries of our experience when we return. You can also support our journey by donating directly at givebutter.com/learn-serve-zambia-2018.
Thanks in advance,
LearnServe Zambia Students
