Join us on an epic journey of discovery through lands steeped in rich history, culture, diversity and changing landscapes!
On this gap year program around South Asia, we encourage our students to fully immerse themselves in the Indian and Nepali ways of life by living under the roof of host families, mastering the art of Indian cooking and Bollywood dancing, and practicing ancient meditation techniques that were taught by Lord Buddha. Apart from the culture, this program will also make your heart skip a beat with its diverse adventure activities and service-learning projects, ranging from trekking to Annapurna Base camp and community volunteering in the shadows of Himalayan giants to surfing on the Arabian Sea and catching the sunrise over the Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world!
We recently embarked on a Net Positive Benefit project where we are qualifying what impacts our groups have on the local communities, taking into consideration carbon emissions +/- social impacts +/- conservation impacts +/- community impacts. On our programs, students engage with non-profit organisations such as Litter Intelligence, Scholars of Sustenance, Ulu Mau puanui, Llama Pack project where they directly work for a better future - planting trees, eradicating invasive weed species, helping local communities and food banks.
