"AISA's vision is to inspire and create a culture of service-learning in member schools across Africa."
Promoting Service Learning in AISA Schools
AISA is proud to be at the forefront of promoting a culture of service-learning in all AISA member schools. Our member schools are dedicated to preparing their students to be global citizens, engaged and equipped to contribute to their community, be it at the local or global level.
Service-learning is a powerful form of experiential education that allows students to learn by doing. Time spent working on community and environmental projects becomes part of the students “lived” education. Complemented by readings, lectures, reflections and discussions, students become informed, compassionate change-makers.
