WATER is a partnership between James Madison University, Gonzaga University and the Songhai Center. It is an international study abroad program focused on sustainable development is open to all undergraduate and graduate students in all majors.
The mission of the WATER program is to provide a service based learning experience to introduce University students and Songhai Center staff and interns to strategies for sustainable development in Sub-Saharan Africa.
