The Purpose of Our Trip

The purpose of the trip is to help students experience the rich culture of India through interactions with Indian educators, professionals, families, and students; through their immersion in Indian art, nature, food and social traditions.

The highlight of this course will be gaining an deeper understanding of human trafficking within India and globally, as we work with NGO’s in Mumbai’s red light district.  Through this experience we will understand the influence that religion and other cultural factors plays in the lives of these women (and their children).  We will also gain a deeper respect and understanding of how Indian religion, ethnicity, food and language impacts individual, families and communities within this large country.

We are excited about this amazing experience, and know that this will be life changing for all of us.
