Harding in Zambia (HIZ) provides students with the opportunity to live, learn and serve at the Namwianga Mission in Zambia. When they are not in class, HIZ students volunteer in elementary and high schools, and serve at the medical clinic and "haven" for infants and toddlers who have lost their mothers.

Participation in the HIZ program allows students to complete a medical missions or health missions minor. Students take Tonga language lessons, learn African history and literature, and study missions and anthropology. Outside of class, students venture on safaris to see the beautiful landscapes and wildlife of Zambia, witness the splendor of Victoria Falls and Lake Victoria, and more. The semester also includes a trip to one or more other African countries. Past groups have visited Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya and Mozambique, among others.

The HIZ program takes place during Fall semesters only and travels with a maximum of 25 students. Participation in the HIZ program also requires an interview process and the successful completion of two prerequisite courses: NURS 2100 and BMIS 3020.

New itinerary for fall 2021

We've made some big changes to the Harding in Zambia (HIZ) itinerary and cost sheet for the fall 2021 semester! HIZ 2021 students will spend the beginning of their semester in Zambia, as well as one week in North Africa in Egypt and then close out the semester with a visit to Greece before returning back to the U.S. These new additions will allow students to learn more about the rich history of Africa, as well as the missionary efforts in this part of the world, with Greece serving as an immigration converging point where missionaries can minister to people migrating from Africa and the Middle East and into Europe.

While in Egypt, HIZ students will:

  • Visit numerous pyramids
  • Visit the Sphinx
  • Cruise on the Nile
  • Tour a variety of Egyptian temples, tombs and ruins

While in Greece, HIZ students will:

  • Tour Athens (the Parthenon, Mars Hill & more)
  • Work with the local church and missionaries in Athens to minister to locals and migrants from numerous countries
  • Visit ancient Corinth
  • The people who live there are the main source of the beauty.
