If you are interested in attending the Experience WASH in Malawi study abroad course, I will be holding two information sessions about the course at the following times:
- Wednesday, Jan 27, 4:30pm, Room 107, Architecture Annex
- Friday, Feb 5, 12pm, Room 111, Architecture Annex
If you are not located at the Blacksburg campus, a WebEx connection to each session can be provided upon request.
Following the completion of the course, interested students will have an opportunity to undertake an internship with different development organizations in Malawi. These organizations include Ngurwu (a community-based organization that provides education and development assistance in many different areas), World Vision, Merion Medical Mission (an organization that installs shallow wells), and the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) (an organization that could offer internships in health, education, and development). We will work with students to help ensure a good fit between their interests and the needs of the organizations.
