Pack your bags. Grab your passport. There’s no better way to ignite your passion for global justice than by traveling with AJWS to Africa, Asia, Latin America or the Caribbean.


Study Tours

AJWS Study Tours are rare opportunities to witness grassroots change up close. Each 7-10 day philanthropic adventure to Africa, Asia, Latin America or the Caribbean is led by AJWS staff and goes beyond the bounds of traditional tourism. Together, we will explore how our dollars can reverse poverty and injustice and empower people to build a more just world.

The fellowship includes a 7-day educational trip to a developing country and the opportunity to advocate for laws and policies in Washington, D.C. that will promote human rights around the globe.
