Join CLC Professors Fred Hutchinson and Michelle Proctor, in partnership with Cross Cultural Solutions (CCS), in Bagamoyo, Tanzania. As a volunteer, you will have a chance to lend a helping hand in a variety of meaningful ways—to empower girls and women through education, work with educators, children and persons with disabilities and provide community health education to reduce stigma and fear. Among the most prevalent issues are the lack of resources, residual effects of a colonial past, and the impact of HIV/AIDS.
