What we do
Our mission is to develop and facilitate Transformative Learning Journeys through our Faculty-led, Study Abroad, School and Service Learning programs in Southern and East Africa. We customize authentic, hands-on and unique educational experiences across 13 countries that have a lasting impact on both the students and the communities they engage with. Our programs cover a broad range of interest and subject areas focused on meeting your requirements and achieving your desired learning outcomes.
Who we are
At EDU Africa, we are passionate about people, our environment, and education. Our vibrant team operates from four regional offices in South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, and Tanzania. We value the opportunity to build lasting relationships with our local communities, institutions, and partners, ensuring our ability to create remarkable, sustainable and authentically African transformative learning journeys.
We aspire for students to experience holistic transformation during our programs in Africa. To encourage this, we offer students access to experiential learning scenarios, high-caliber industry and academic professionals, and remarkable community initiatives. This combination of place-based experience and content, coupled with intentional reflection practices and dialogue, aims to challenge students’ understanding of various African cultures, knowledge-systems, and worldviews, but also of their own.
After participating in our programs, we hope that students will become global agents of the change they experience; that is, that after experiencing individual transformation, they will become vehicles of knowledge transference, essentially “carrying the torch”, to affect other lives following their time in Africa.
We believe every journey to Africa gives students the opportunity to learn and transform through cross-cultural engagements and personal reflection, by exploring global issues, exchanging knowledge and gaining practical experience.
