Rather than focusing on language teaching or common and easily accessible cultural experiences, CL introduces Western students to complex cultural issues through our partnerships.
Our range of partners and on the ground experience means we arrange both generalist and specialist trips depending on the needs of each group. Themes for specialist trips include, but are not limited to media and journalism, education, training and employment, psycho-social care, and environmental conservation.
- Changing Lives is a non-profit organization and is philanthropically funded, making it affordable for students.
- CL is an open and inclusive project in which free speech and freedom of expression are actively encouraged and celebrated. We work with partner organisations who share our aims and values.
- CL encourages ongoing engagement and through an alumni network for participants, helping to facilitate continuing contributions to cross-cultural relations.
