About

Do more than go abroad this summer, step out into the world.

Join our programs in Kenya for 3- or 8-week Institutes focused on Social Innovation. Gather at the local community center with a handful of community members to brainstorm, discuss, and address local challenges together.

Going abroad should impact you and the people you meet. An Institute with ThinkImpact will help you gain knowledge about social entrepreneurship, social innovation, and Kenyan culture. It will change your entire perspective about the world and positively influence the community members that you worked with.
