GESI in South Africa

The South Africa program differs from other GESI sites in that it has a distinct thematic focus on social entrepreneurship and requires total immersion in remote communities. Students collaborate with local people to understand their strengths and assets, and then together the groups discover and develop opportunities for new socially-driven businesses and initiatives.
