Overview

Students participating in this program will gain insight into South African history, society, and culture, with special opportunities to learn about the education and healthcare systems with an emphasis on children with disabilities. This enriching program examines the differences and similarities between life in South Africa and life in the United States and gives students a worldview that most people will never have the chance to see. From the Soweto townships of Johannesburg, the university experience in Port Elizabeth and Robben Island in Capetown, students will visit schools and medical clinics that serve children with disabilities. Students will spend time at Nelson Mandela University experiencing the redevelopment of a nation and are encouraged to think critically about the parallels between the USA and South Africa.
