SCHC 400: Service Learning and Literacy in Malawi, Africa

 

What to Expect

Location:
Lilongwe, Malawi

Dates:
5/30/24-6/10/24

Program Description:
The goals of the course are to experience, firsthand, some of the challenges facing citizens of Malawi, connect with local organizations and engage in meaningful discussions with their leaders, and participate in important service projects in local communities. The experience will allow students to be immersed in hands-on international service learning activities while also participating in fun and exhilarating travel and adventure.

One of the primary goals of the course is to incorporate Cockys Reading Express (CRE) into our service work in Malawi. CRE is USCs literacy outreach program where faculty, staff and student volunteers travel to underserved schools throughout the state of South Carolina, reading to children and promoting the importance of life-long reading. At USC, CRE is housed in the School of Information Science, the academic home of one of the study abroad faculty leaders, Dr. Dick Kawooya.

Term: Summer

Participation Instructions: *Students must speak with Kristine Ytem first before completing an application through the Education Abroad Office.*
