The Global Citizenship Partnership is REAP’s service learning initiative that partners U.S. elementary and high school students with Duha students. This approach builds bridges between two different cultures to bring alive commonalties.
Service learning enlarges a student's perspective on their own life through understanding another culture. In addition, by committing to an action, a student has the opportunity to effect change.
