KidsGive spring break 2015

If you have taken Social Entrepreneurship with Professor Skran, you are already familiar with KidsGive. During spring break of 2015, Professor Skran will again take a group of Lawrence students to Sierra Leone. The students will have the opportunity to carry out individual research projects, volunteer with KidsGive at local schools, and participate in immersive cultural activities. The trip is open to students of all majors, as there are many opportunities for diverse projects throughout the country. Some recent examples include researching eco-tourism, studying water resources, and looking at the economic impact of diamond mines on neighboring communities. If you think you may be interested in joining, attend the informational meeting on Thursday, April 24th at 9PM in the Hurvis Room (Warch 2nd floor) to learn more about what part you can play in this trip.
