THE INTERCULTURAL EXCHANGE: Broadway in South Africa fosters communication, collaboration, and social integration amongst a diverse group of students, many of whom would never interact without our on the ground presence. We provide a safe space to discuss serious issues, cultivate new ideas and develop solution oriented thinking. This exchange is vital to erasing the social inequality that stands in the way of effective and universal education and the fight to end poverty.
