Arrangements for air transportation from Boston to Accra, Ghana, or Kigali, Rwanda, will be made by Babson College for the group. Participants will be responsible for payment of airfare, made directly to the travel agent. All ground transportation, lodging, and food will be arranged for the group, and will be included in the program cost. Lodging will be in comfortable, but modest, accommodations. In Ghana, Babson faculty and students have stayed many times at an international mission in Sekondi, which the group plans to utilize again. In Rwanda, the team will stay at a hostel.
The cost for participation is divided into two parts: payment for airfare and a program fee. The cost for airfare (round trip from Boston) is currently estimated at approximately $2,200. The program fee (which will cover food, lodging, and all local transportation in Ghana or Rwanda) will be $800.
Volunteers who choose to attend both the Ghana and Rwanda BELA will pay a $1,600 program fee ($800 per program). All participants are responsible for their own airfare. Apply Now!
Please complete the Application for the Babson Entrepreneurial Leadership Academies, which will be available in January. You’ll be contacted shortly after your submission!
