Students of the World, an organization conceived by college students and led by students, is devoted to spreading awareness about social justice issues through documentary work. In particular, we focus on non-governmental organizations affecting change in the international community.
This June, the Columbia team will travel to Tanzania, where we will study two Africare-partnered organizations. The Community-Based Orphan Care, Protection and Empowerment (COPE) Project seeks to increase the community's ability to provide support and care for vulnerable children. The Kilimanjaro Landscape Conservation Partnership (KLCPP) aims to preserve both the communities of Kilimanjaro and its natural attributes.
Last summer, the Columbia team - in its inaugural SOW trip - traveled with Brown to Ethiopia, where we studied the HIV/AIDS testing and treatment sites of the African Services Committee. For photographs from that trip, please click the "Photos" tab at the top of the page.
