We – Dr. Danielle DeMuth, Associate Professor in Women & Gender Studies, and Brittany Dernberger, Assistant Director of the Women’s Center – are looking forward to traveling with another group of Grand Valley State University students to South Africa this spring! We are finishing up orientation sessions and the 13 students who are participating in this year’s trip are excited to wrap-up the current semester and depart for South Africa.
We will again be engaging in service learning with SHAWCO, a non-governmental organization associated with the University of Cape Town. We’re currently seeking school supply donations to bring with us as we tutor at Manenberg Primary School.
We will be posting almost daily during our time in South Africa and look forward to sharing our experiences with you! You can subscribe to our blog by clicking the “follow” button in the right hand corner in order to get an e-mail update each time a new post is made .
