Alternative trip

Have you ever wondered what would it be lije to get to know another country in all of it's essences? Well, I always do. One of th things I like the most is to travel. Trips like going to a beach with an awesome hotel and chill are ok, but if you're looking for an enriching experience while traveling, this summer program is the best for you. During the india summer program, I got the opportunity to get to know lots of the emblematic places of this country and I also could help the people who lived there by teaching the basic subjects to the children. One of the moments I will always remember will be one of the days volunteering in Delhi, a man and a girl showed us the place where all our children lived with their families. All full of dirt, dogs, kids playing around, wires hanging everywhere... This types of experiences are the ones that enrich you the most and you can't get with a conventional trip, with the summer program, you get to know the real essence of india.

Excellent staff and lovely projects make this an unforgettable experience

Our school has come to Delhi several times to participate in the program and we have loved all of our trips. The staff are wonderful and ensure a safe and enjoyable stay for our students. The projects are well run and very worthwhile. The teachers at the schools are very dedicated to their students and we feel welcomed into their world for the duration of our stay.

What would you improve about this program?
For returning groups it would be nice to reduce the registration fee or something similar. Especially since our yearly trip is only for 8 or 9 days each time the registration takes up a big chunk of our budget. The accommodation fees are excellent and worth every penny! We do understand that the fees are already low and the services provided are excellent.
