There are endless opportunities for KENYA Airlift recipients to learn, grow and have fun. Adventure is just one of many exciting experiences for them. One such adventure had a group of University of Alabama students who trekked to beautiful Lookout Mountain in Tennessee. This trip was an excellent opportunity for the students to get away from the academic routine and enjoy the stunning views of the mountain.
Through these adventures, students are able to experience diverse cultures, explore new places, and participate in exciting activities that enhance their growth and development. These experiences go beyond the classroom and provide students with important life skills such as adaptability, problem-solving, and teamwork.
Thus, these experiences are an essential aspect of international education and help broaden students’ horizons.
