What opportunities does this program offer?

Consult Businesses

Meet with small business owners to discuss their business needs. Many small business owners in east Africa are illiterate. Teaching basic business principles like how to use a ledger, set goals, and acquire new skills empowers the business owners.

Present Workshops

Give workshops to groups of entrepreneurs and students. Teach the importance of team vision, inspiring employees, and working towards your dreams.

Learn from Experts

Hear from international business professionals. Professionals visit with our volunteers to give advice on business in the developing world, available opportunities, and ways to prepare for a successful career in the international scene.

Experience a Safari

Experience Africa’s top-rated safari on the Serengeti. Volunteers enjoy seeing lions, elephants, wildebeests, giraffes, and much more as they go on a multiple day safari through the great African plains.
