Overview

Spend the Mandela Month of Service working on projects that bring Nelson Mandela’s legacy to life. Students who attend this 3-week CIEE Global Navigator program in Cape Town will gain an appreciation for both South Africa’s progress in expanding access to education and the work that remains to be done.

Mandela lived his life according to the African philosophy Ubuntu, which teaches that all humans share a common bond, and it is through our interactions that we discover that bond and our own humanity. Under the guidance of CIEE staff in cooperation with local NGO partners, you’ll have opportunities to experience Ubuntu while working on projects, from creating a more conducive learning environment at a library, to assisting a service group in its mission to house, teach, and support homeless people.
