"I have worked with a variety of travel organizations and our experience with GEI was a dream! An enormous thanks to Francoise for everything she did to make our travels in Rwanda seamless, comfortable, and truly enjoyable. She and the Kigali team were fantastic!"

Dr. Chris Germer
Harvard Medical School

"The self-compassion training we were able to offer through GEI to mental health counsellors in Kenya was one of the most moving teaching experiences of my life."

Jessica Rush
University of Washington

"I will run out of adjectives trying to describe our program with GEI in South Africa. Our experiences have been truly paradigm shifting. It’s also been a whole lot of fun!"

Dr. Reid Click
George Washington University

"GEI made our program in Rwanda a great success. You connected me and my students with the important players in business, government, and non-governmental organizations. You are a valuable partner for my program, and I highly recommend working with you to maximize the impact of time in Africa and Asia."

Kate Cotton
University of Glasgow

"The internship program gave me the opportunity to see and hear all that Rwanda has to offer. It opened my eyes and ears to new ways to approach my field. The GEI team always saw if we needed extra support and heard any concerns or feedback we had, and worked conscientiously and effectively to resolve any concerns."

Seram Lee
Pepperdine University

"I have been at students' service as a logistical liaison for many years now and I don't remember the last time I had such an effective, comfortable, and fun experience co-coordinating a program. Coralie and GEI have redefined my expectations on travel providers' level of efficiency, and I cannot thank Coralie enough for her dedication, flexibility, attention to detail, and overall outstanding character in helping us make this program in South Africa happen."
