“Life changing there’s no other way to experience another culture the way Educo Africa facilitates this course. The program has way of shedding light on everyone’s similarities first so participants can build connections and then talk about differences from a place of curiosity and engagement.”

Beneficiary

“Experimental learning the programme teaches one to look at themselves and then others and use those inner strength to assist others.”

Beneficiary

Overwhelming enlightening. In everyday life you don’t often have time to listen to body, mind and spirit. The wilderness experience allowed me to chance to get back to listening to myself. It gave me permission to let go and feel emotions that I have buried down for months. It freed me from myself.”

Beneficiary

“Absolutely wonderful some searching experience. I’ve learned so much about myself and ways to take this learning back with me to America.”
