What is AISA-GISS?GISS logo CMYK 300dpi

The AISA-Global Issues Service Summit (GISS) is a three-day annual summit hosted by an AISA member school.

AISA-GISS motivates and encourages students to enquire about global issues and learn alongside other delegates and changemakers from across Africa.

Student delegates spend time presenting, learning, sharing and discussing important issues during the summit, followed by a hands-on service learning day in the local community.

AISA-GISS provides delegates with opportunities to strategize solutions to global issues, meaningful sessions and stories about positive change happening here in Africa, and the support for taking action and engagement in their own communities.

AISA-GISS has become a calendar highlight for many of our AISA member schools as students are awakened to the notion that they can make a difference as they work together to consider and develop solutions for Global Issues.
