“Our goal is for all students to experience holistic transformation during their time in Africa, and that they will become global agents of that change.”
Who we are
At EDU Africa, we are passionate about people, our environment, and education. We believe every journey with us to Africa, gives students the opportunity to learn and transform. Our exceptional team operates from four regional offices in South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, and Tanzania and we value the opportunity to build lasting relationships with our local communities, partners and clients from around the world.
What we do
It is our mission to develop and facilitate Transformative Learning Journeys through our Faculty-led, Virtual Exchange, Service Learning, School and Individual Study Abroad programs in Southern and East Africa. Our experienced program designers will work closely with you to develop your program, ensuring it meets your logistical needs and achieves your specific academic learning outcomes.
Through these custom programs, we give faculty and their students access to experiential learning opportunities, high-caliber industry and academic professionals, and sustainable community initiatives. By combining place-based experience and content with intentional reflection practices and dialogue, we aim to challenge students’ understanding of various African cultures, knowledge-systems, and worldviews, but also of their own.
We see each one of our custom programs as a new opportunity to encourage, enhance and measure the process of student transformation. Through intercultural engagements and personal reflection, by exploring global issues, exchanging knowledge and gaining practical experience, our programs aim to encourage student growth in the following areas: Intercultural Competence, Global Citizenship, Personal Growth, Intellectual Growth, and Professional Development.
