Greetings avery,
the face of africa

What are you doing this summer?

Working? Internships? Road Trips? Why not go to East Africa for 3 weeks with a small group of your peers- intelligent, socially conscious, and ambitious? Begin learning a different language, learn about the change that is happening in East Africa, get to know the 'real people', and share your talents and knowledge with people committed to change from around the world!
You will definitely leave wanting to return, and with new perspective about yourself and the world around you.
You have received this email because you requested more information about this trip. You may have also received it because a colleague, friend or family member thought you might be interested.

LGIT! Tour 2007: Culture, Development, & Environment

Tentative Dates: July 14, 2007 - August 4, 2007

famu student on mt. Explore Kenya and Tanzania, East Africa on this 3 week cross cultural experiential experience that goes beyond a safari or vacation tour. Get to know the people and challenges of a nation that finds itself trying to balance living in an increasingly globalized society and retaining a traditional cultural existence. How are the youth receiving access to education and technology? Which grassroots organizations are creating sustainable development? Who are the people behind the local community groups and how are they coming together to support each other? You won't find a safari on this trip because East Africa has so much more to offer! Travel with a crew of your peers - young visionary leaders dedicated to creating a socially and economically responsible global community. Share your know-how with your East African counterparts as we travel throughout the region providing forum, concert, and workshop opportunities!

This is a cultural immersion tour designed for small groups of first time travelers and based on public service and experiential education. Combining hands-on projects, language sessions, collaborative community forums, and social events, LGiT Tours are an excellent gateway into international development and studying abroad. Participants will travel to Kenya and Tanzania, East Africa for a life changing 3 week journey into the lives, issues,and lessons to be learned from rural and urban communities throughout the East African region.

Food for Thought...
school boys "We now stand at...a place where we must either step forward or backward. If we goes backward we die; if we goes forward it will be with the hope of a greater life. Those of us who have developed our minds are compelled, by duty, to step out among the millions of the masses... The time has come for those of us who have the vision of the future to inspire our people to a closer kinship, to a closer love of self, because it is only through this appreciation of self will we be able to rise..."
~Marcus Garvey
