What People are Saying

  • Not only did we get to see and tour Cuban culture and art, but also we were invited to experience and appreciate it. The city of Havana was safe, beautiful, communal and allowed me to meet people I would never have been able to interact with otherwise.

    Student participant, Denison University
  • The most memorable part of the trip was the Mount Gulaga walk and the aboriginal ceremony we were allowed to take part in. It was such a special cultural activity that I felt truly gave some insight into the connection to the land that the tribes share.

    Student participant, Towson University in Australia
  • My most memorable thing about my experience in this program would have to be the individuals that helped us and took us in as if we were citizens of Botswana. I do not think I will ever forget these people for they have made such a great impact on my life.
