The African SOUP’s rural community development programs work in tandem with their national Active Learning Project to deliver a model of education that engages learners, develops community, and inspires leaders across Uganda.

In 2015, CEHD signed a MOC with the Bishop Willis Core Primary Teacher’s College and the African SOUP.  The College will offer a 2017 Maymester study abroad program in Uganda entitled the ESTEAM (Environmental Science Team for Education, Arts & Multiculturalism) Project, which will include activities for undergraduate and graduate students that focus on developing interdisciplinary learning while providing invaluable intercultural experience opportunities through experiences in Ugandan urban, rural and natural settings.
