Our school tours takes you a mile to immerse yourself in African village life as you join extraordinarily welcoming local people to volunteer on community-initiated projects with a focus on public health. Rwanda is a small, lush, and mountainous East African nation with a tragic history and progressive approaches to development. Collaborate with NGOs and meet with medical professionals to survey a diversity of health services. Assist community members in construction projects and explore how our work impacts the global community and our own lives in this complex and beautiful country. In the past we have organized special themed tours for students from different high schools and universities mainly from U.S.A, Canada and Nigeria such as Michigan State University, Harvard University, Shawnee State University, Oklahoma State University, University of Georgia and Oxbridge university to name a few. We strongly believe its overdue that we start offering the same type of specialized experiential tours to local schools in Rwanda that complement the current students curriculum.
We understand that each student group has unique interests, time constraints, and budget concerns. At Focus East Africa Tours, a dedicated program manager works closely with each of our student groups to design customized student group tour program while optimizing resources and meeting student group’s travel objectives. Private student group tours are designed for groups of 20 or more students. Your group can choose from one of our recommended itineraries or our program managers can design a customized program that is tailored to meet all your student group’s needs. Choose from one of our suggested programs or allow one of our knowledgeable Program Managers to customize an educational tour program with a unique theme for your student group. Our pre-packaged itineraries feature various themes such as business, law, education, culture, history, health, governance, agriculture etc. These tours aim at introducing the visitor to one or several distinct themes. This is achieved through a variety of visits to institutions and projects, meetings with individuals and groups from the grassroots level to the top decision-makers, a mix of a few theoretical presentations and many practical experiences on the ground, and time for discussions and reflections. All of this is combined with intimate experiences with the local culture and people as well as the country’s established tourism attractions that offer both relaxing and adventurous travel environment.
