Experience international education without leaving your classroom…

In today’s world, access to a global education has never been more important. Still, finding ways to provide an international education to students can feel challenging and expensive. Kambia offers a unique solution: online hybrid programs that combine the flexibility of online learning with the transformative power of real-world impact. Students get hands-on experience in their field of study while providing essential services to low-income communities around the world.

What is Kambia?

Kambia is more than just an online learning experience. We are a global partnership between universities and colleges in the United States and communities and leaders in Central America, West Africa and Greece. Our mission is to inspire, mobilize, and collaborate with communities to achieve their own health and economic goals.

The Kambia team works alongside educators to customize online programs that seamlessly integrate with existing curriculums. This means your students can earn academic credit while gaining invaluable hands-on experience in a culturally immersive environment, all directly from your classroom.
