Journey to India
February 19, 2020 – February 29, 2020
Steeped in ancient wisdom, spiritual and inspiring, chaotic and disorienting. There is truly no way to fully describe India — one simply needs to experience it. Combine this magical, once-in-a-lifetime journey with exploration of the important challenges facing women, young girls and underprivileged children in India today.
This rich and thought-provoking trip will involve visits to cultural sights as well as engagement with a host of courageous change-makers, community leaders and small local non-profits working on the prevention of some of India’s greatest human rights challenges — gender discrimination, child marriage, and human trafficking. Journey through New Delhi, Udaipur (Rajasthan), then venture off the beaten path to the villages surrounding Kolhapur for a rare and intimate look at the power of empowering women and children at the grassroots.
Engage in discussions relating to the ever-present caste system in India, the biases facing young girls, women and widows and opportunities available to contribute to and support the positive change underway.LEARN MORE
