CULTURE Students will reflect on how culture shapes the way people live and why it is important to preserve local culture and the challenges and importance of doing so in a globalized world.
HISTORY Students will explore how history affects a country, its people, and the country’s relationship with other countries.
EDUCATION Students will explore the relationship between poverty, development and education and identify the barriers to providing quality education in a developing country.
POVERTY Students will see and feel the impact that poverty has on a place and its people and have the opportunity to explore ways to break the cycle of poverty using the framework of the 5Ps (People, place, politics, past, peace).
POLITICS Students will learn about the challenges of governing a country with low resources, lack of education, lack of infrastructure, corruption and dependence on foreign aid. Students will explore how politics affects all of the other themes.
GLOBAL BUSINESS Students will learn how businesses can impact the development of impoverished countries and the importance of sustainable business practices in a globalized economy.
AID AND DEVELOPMENT Students will gain insight into the challenges of creating and managing a sustainable aid project. Students will explore different projects and organizations and discuss how aid can have both a positive and negative impact on a country.
Our trip will offer us many unique experiences. Some examples: we will shadow a local high school student for a day, work as a local on a family farm, sell produce at the local market, teach an English language class, work on community development projects, and learn to live on $1 a day.
I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to be given this opportunity. I believe it will be a life-changing event for me. I have been awarded a $1,000 scholarship but need to raise the remaining $3,500 on my own. I sincerely hope you choose to support my campaign, however, even if you can't contribute you can still help! Please share this link with your friends and family to help!
Thank you so much for joining me on this incredible journey!
