In Swakopmund, Namibia, you'll have the chance to experience life among several distinct cultures. Although many people speak Afrikaans and Oshiwambo dialects, the official language in Namibia is English, allowing you to build close relationships. You’ll spend time in the city market getting to know local vendors, many of whom come from surrounding Himba tribes.

Become a part of ministry in local schools, working with kids in the classroom and after school. You may also get creative with outreach through sports, homework help, and feeding ministries, serving in practical ways while connecting with locals and host families on a deeper level. If you're a college student with a month to spare next summer, don't miss this Africa mission trip!
