Good start for high school graduates

I\ve always liked to study and my dream was to visit India and so I managed. I enjoy my stay at the school, met a lot of nice people, some of them friends for life.
I did not always agree with everything in the program but it was totally worth it to pass through and fulfill my Indian dream. The work with kids was amazing! Although, of course, the culture shock was also something....

How can this program be improved?
A bit more organization skills training for everyone won't hurt
Yes, I recommend this program

Great experience!

This was my first after school experience abroad and it was great! Loved the self studies, loved the seminars at the school, all the different acticities, evening programs, yes, sometimes it feels like you are getting a submarine disease, since you live in the mountains but in summer the place just blooms with possibilities.
Work in India was challenging however we had support from the project leader, we could travel around as well, during weekends and holidays to make most out of the stay in the country.

How can this program be improved?
Sometimes hard to deal with different peolpe from different countries but it is rewarding and the children just love you!
Yes, I recommend this program
