Marhaba Service Learning Program

Spend your summer volunteering in Cairo!

Marhaba: Volunteers in the Middle East is announcing its summer 2010 service-learning programs in Cairo, Egypt. We offer summer experiences for college students that combine Arabic language study with meaningful service to communities Egypt. This year volunteers will either teach English classes at an Egyptian youth-led NGO which addresses urban poverty or teach extracurricular classes to refugee children in summer school. Students should expect to spend 15 to 20 hours per week volunteering. Additionally, we arrange Arabic courses, cultural events, and group trips throughout the summer.
Marhaba is pleased to offer two scholarships of up to $1,000 to support volunteers in either program who would not otherwise be able to volunteer abroad.

While we welcome applicants from all majors. Students with experience in the performing and visual arts are especially encouraged to apply to Program 1 with St. Andrews Refugee Services.

More information is available at www.gomahaba.org or by emailing info@gomarhaba.org.
