Two Algoma University business students Josh Gibbs and Josh Wooly went to Tanzania Africa during this year’s summer break to put their studies into action. The students won a case competition in their Not for Profit class, where the goal was to develop new solutions to help deal with education issues in Tanzania Africa. This opportunity allowed the students to reside in Tanzania and see first-hand how their solutions help the school. This opportunity was a joint project with the business faculty at Algoma University and K-Robs Social Enterprise with the goal of gaining work experience and applying what they have learned into real life situations and exposing them to international environments.
