AAP

In practicing the word and living for the sake of others, find your life’s calling.

AAP will provide a means for it’s participants to experience the rich culture and beauty of Africa while partaking in service projects and understanding a greater reality.

In less than a month, re-access your life and figure out what it means to be a global citizen. The world is your stage, where will you have the greatest impact?

The United States of America stands in the position of an elder son nation in relation to all other nations, specially in the aspect that it is in the position to give guiance and help to it’s “sibling nations”.

Among them the countries of Africa stand out. Their is a heartistic debt which USA has towards Africa. Now is the time to give back.
