Africa Lures BU Students

Never mind London, Paris and Rome — Africa is a destination of growing popularity among study abroaders at Boston University.

One group of students will head for Uganda this summer to complete service learning with ChildVoice International, which offers counseling and life-skills training to child-rape victims in a nation wracked by war.

“I just hope to get a more real sense of what it’s like for [the people of Uganda],” said sophomore Molly Byrd, quoted in The Daily Free Press independent newspaper at BU. “Living in America, it’s like this paradise compared to what they’re living in, and I just think it’s good to get a reality check.”
