The Study Abroad in Lesotho program is an international and intersectoral suite of training activities scheduled to run from February 2023 to March 2025. It includes a partnership between Athabasca University and the not-for-profit organization RISE, focusing on three training areas: Architecture, Heritage Resources Management, and Computer Science. The program involves a series of two-week workshops in Lesotho. Students will work directly with RISE and their fellows to gain social and technical knowledge in community projects. Through the experience, the students will gain a diverse global perspective on the overarching social, economic, environmental, and cultural regeneration theme.
