INSIGHT is a unique 10-day summer programme that provides an incredible insight into the spirit of service, sense of community and diversity of India. The programme is specifically designed for young people aged 15-17 and of Indian origin, and takes place in Gujarat, India.
Every individual of Indian origin will of course have their own experience and understanding of India, and as such this programme seeks to build upon the insights that participants can share with each other, as well as aiming to broaden horizons and provide new perspectives.
The programme offers an experience to immerse into aspects of life, culture and development accessible by those who are local to Ahmedabad. You will get an insight into development issues in both urban and rural environments, you will gain an appreciation of the complexity of what it takes to effect positive change and have a unique opportunity to interact with leaders who continue to make a difference to underprivileged communities. Through guided reflections and group activities you will have an opportunity to deepen your understanding of what you see and do. Your Insight India journey will connect you with India in a personal, creative and stimulating way.
Date: 1st August – 10th August 2013
Age: 15 – 17 years
Cost: £495 (includes all programme activities, accommodation, meals and internal transport)
