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.
Our Transformation Goals
We believe every journey to Africa facilitates holistic student transformation. We encourage this transformation by promoting student and community engagement, critical self-reflection and deep, contextual learning, the effectiveness of which is measured using our transformative assessment tool. Ultimately, our student transformation is centered around advancing the following five goals:
Recognizing the limits of cultural biases and learning to ascribe value to different cultures and practices
Recognizing the interrelatedness of humanity and building ethical and sustainable networks of solidarity
Experiencing profound personal change through the discovery of new strengths and weaknesses; and revitalizing beliefs, values and worldviews
Expanding intellectual development by exchanging knowledge in various African contexts
Changing the way students think about their potential professions (and their roles as professionals) to better equip them for the global job market
