The programme is designed with three key objectives in mind;
Educational Journey: By working with local communities, our trained staff and experiencing the fascinating culture of India first-hand, you will be taken on an immense educational and insightful journey. From teaching English, introducing new sports activities to local kids and showcasing interesting aspects of your home country and culture, you will broaden and excite the minds of these young children and make lifelong friends. Not only will you be educating a new generation, but the educational experience you will receive in return will be priceless. With our trained staff always on hand to help you out, you can rest assured you will always have assistance and guidance should you need it.
Cultural Expansion: There is nothing quite like living in a local community, sharing meals and laughter with new friends and working alongside the local people to broaden your experience and give you a deep understanding of the culture, traditions and people. Entering a culture, where everything from the food, the weather, the landscapes, the religion and the clothes are completely different to your home country, can be a big learning curve, so we do our best to provide you with supportive introductory classes, tips and advice to help you understand this vast and varied new culture. By observing and partaking in another culture, it can also, in effect, provide you with a deeper and new understanding of your own culture.
Travel Experiences: Physical travel, as well as an inner spiritual journey, will help you to experience the best of what India has to offer. From the colourful markets, to the grand temples, and rural villages, India is a huge country with a new surprise around every corner, and in each locale. Travelling by train, bus, rickshaw, taxi, bicycle, camel, and maybe even an elephant, will help you to see the country from the ground, instead of missing out by flying above the clouds. To keep in tune with our environmental ethics, we choose to travel by the most eco-friendly methods, which means travelling like a local for an authentic and enriching experience of India.
With exciting outdoor adventures, powerful inner journeys, deep cultural exploration and rewarding local interactions, our India programme is the perfect way to spend four weeks in this enchanting country.
So, let´s take a closer look at a more detailed itinerary for your 30 day Indian experience.
