Through spending time with teachers in their classrooms, helping students as they learn, and talking with teachers and students about their experiences, students gain knowledge and understanding of how culture impacts teaching and learning. You have the opportunity to develop projects that will assist teachers in their teaching and students in their learning in participating schools as well as participate in on-going service learning projects in the schools.
There will be field trips to local outdoor markets, craftsman exhibits and demonstrations, hiking on Mt. Mulanje (third highest mountain in Africa), an overnight safari, an overnight at a resort area on Lake Malawi where village dances will be demonstrated. There will also be visits to an environmental village project, an orphanage, and the Mua Mission Museum, where tribal rituals are explained, and other visits to villages and schools.
