Kharyshi Wiginton, the founder and Director of “Culture Keepers”. The mission of the South Africa Project is for the students to expand their awareness through cultural exchange, build on their sense of pride and self-esteem by participating in community service and grow their worldview through traveling and exposure to other languages. In July 2015, we took our 1st journey to South Africa with 11 students and 7 mentors to participate in this wonderful, highly successful, cultural exchange project, and in March 2017, we took our second group of youth and mentors to South Africa. During our 2nd trip, we almost tripled in size taking 27 youth (1 middle schooler, 23 high schoolers, and 3 college students) and 9 mentors.
