Global Education Nepal is a culturally enriching experience designed to help the health care or social work students to advance in cultural competence while being the hands and feet of Christ in a developing nation. This course will enable the student to directly interact with widows, orphans, individuals with disabilities, the health care and educational system, as well as other social ministries to better the lives of the poor and underprivileged. Each participant will grow professionally as they learn about life in a resilient Asian country that has been devastated by earthquakes and poverty, while they make friends from the other side of the world.
