About this Journey

This is a program we’ve designed and developed with local community leaders. Ideal for student groups looking for meaningful and sustainable service-learning opportunities, groups will be residing in local homes at a rural village and focusing on a village project. Project examples include water wheel construction, road restoration, eco-toilet building, and local school restoration. Our groups are granted unprecedented access to the lives and communities of the local people. They are encouraged throughout the trip to reflect on global issues such as urbanization, sustainability, and micro-economics.
