Although apartheid is not longer legal in this growing country, you can still see the marks of this “separateness” in the shacks of Soweto. However, the hope of complete transformation can be found when meeting with various business, educational, and religious leaders that see the opportunity for change and have a vision and a passion to see it come to fruition. These leaders will show you how to take a broken land and cultivate compassion and grace through effective practices.
This trip will open your eyes to the adventure of the African safari, the busyness of an African market, the pain that AIDS has brought to communities, and the hope that can be found through Christ-centered organizations.
$4,500 covers transportation, lodging and cultural excursions with the group. The cost of this trip is not included in BUS-511 course tuition.
