Africa is not seen as a melting point for invention, diversity or bursting educational capacity, but rather as the global example for everything which could possibly go wrong in a continent. As leaders of tomorrow who will be at the forefront of development strategies that will impact the whole world, we ought to deconstruct such harmful misconceptions and make room for inclusivity. In this 14-day experiential learning programme, participants will travel and explore different aspects of countries in Africa through recreational, educational and community service-oriented activities.
