Preparing students to go forth into all nations and provide a voice of hope to those who have no voice.

The Mission of the Department of International & Intercultural Studies

To equip students with the knowledge of cultural differences and to prepare them to make a difference in communities across the globe.

“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth,” Acts 1:8 (KJV)

Manda University’s Department of Humanitarian Missions equips students to go into all nations and assist people physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

The motto of our philanthropists is to love our neighbors as ourselves. Therefore, our mission is to go into all countries, regardless of religion, gender, ethnicity, and cultural differences. Students will be well-prepared to reach people all around the globe. Students providing humanitarian aid to a specific country will also have the opportunity to learn the country’s main language.

Our students are not only trained to provide disaster relief, but they are also trained to overcome cultural barriers. They will bring hope to the underserved population, and they will give a voice of hope to those who have no voice.
