Program Overview

Program Description:
This unique service learning experience challenges students to immerse themselves into Ghanaian life and culture by serving as interns with a variety of local women’s organizations. You might be helping an organization that supports survivors of violence, one that helps women living with HIV/AIDs, or one that promotes leadership and advocacy for African women. Building on your background knowledge of women’s issues, particularly those specific to Africa, you’ll get a chance to engage in meaningful work at the grass roots level.
