Jodi curated an incredible learning experience seeing Rwanda through many different lens. After a quick overview of where Rwanda has been and where Rwanda is now, Jodi brought together an amazing collection of leaders, entrepreneurs and students to paint a picture of where Rwanda is going next. Highlights: attending a community event post-umaganda to hear what's top of mind (everything from marital spats to calling on every adult to be responsible for the children of the community), meeting the future leaders of Africa as they embark on their life journeys, wandering the mountain villages and seeing children learning how to use the Microsoft suite. If you're looking for a well-rounded deep-dive into Rwanda, Jodi is the best guide!

Jodi Morris has done it again and I'm not sure how she will top herself, however I have no doubt that she will. Rwanda 2023 was a life changing trip for myself and kids. We experienced things that one can only dream about. We had the opportunity to participate in Umaganda, a countrywide community service program designed to unite and strengthen the nation at a local level. We were also immersed in the fast-paced entrepreneurial sector bringing new ideas to life to overcome challenges. Additionally, we spent time at the newly constructed African Leadership University, engaging with bright minded African students determined to change the world with their amazing ideas and leadership. Because of Jodi's connections and friendships, we were invited into the thriving art scene, dined with the dynamic Minister of Infrastructure and enjoyed a delicious lunch in the home of two American expats intent on bringing their dream to life by building Virunga Mountain Spirits, a potato vodka distillery, run by women and 100% sustainable. It was a magical journey, renewing my sense of resilience and curiosity. Pam Silvaroli

Traveling with Jodi and Connecting Growth Globally is a life changing experience!!! The CGG trips are not like any other group trip experience! Each trip combines history, culture, and sightseeing with meeting lots of wonderful, innovative, and bold young people who are finding new ways to move their country forward through education, activism, and business. For me, it is all about the people and it is exhilarating to see how much energy and creativity these young Guatemalans are bringing to making a better future for their country despite experiencing some pretty rough times in the not too distant past. And the people who sign up for these trips are adventurous, fun and interesting, too. I also learned a lot from them! Sign up for the next CGG trip! You won't regret it!!!
