Humans of Change Travel Abroad Program: Summer 2014

We invite you to take a step with us into a new world—a step into the Maasai Mara region of Kenya. If you are interested in taking a walk in someone else’s shoes—sometimes quite literally—this is the trip for you. Building schools, digging wells, planting trees—that’s just part of the fun, part of creating change in the world.

Meet and learn from the local elders and community leaders, walk with the mamas to draw water, learn Swahili each day and help build a school or clean water project for children in need.

Join us on an intimate and unique learning experience set against the spectacular backdrop of the African landscape.

Kenya Sample Itinerary

Humans of Change wants to inspire the youth to play an active role in their local and global communities and provide an opportunity for students to travel and further develop their leadership potential.

The mission of Humans of Change is to build schools in rural villages and create sustainability through education.

In partnership with Free the Children, you have the opportunity to live our mission through this exciting international volunteer experience!

Today more than ever, youth are truly citizens of a global community. Free the Children allows first-hand access to global development opportunities. Spending time with their field workers abroad, students are given the opportunity to directly participate in a project while conversing with those on the ground who implement the programs all year long.

Trip Highlights

  • Volunteer abroad and help build a school for children who may never have set foot inside a classroom.
