The Africa Service Learning Trip changed my life. I learned so much about local politics and social structures, the history of colonialism and the role of foreign aid in economic development. I also learned a lot about myself, as I developed resiliency and gratitude. This experience inspired me to weave international development into my long-term career. I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity my scholarship provided.—Katie Chen, Ivey 2018 Participant at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, Kenya
The Africa Service Learning Trip was a transformative opportunity that allowed me develop my leadership and communication skills. Sharing my own learning while receiving an international business perspective was an invaluable experience that could never be recreated in the classroom. The confidence that I got from undertaking this trip is something that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.—Devon Bingham, Ivey 2018 Participant at Addis Ababa University School of Commerce, Ethiopia
