The most rewarding elements of this program were the supportive people, both in my group and those met abroad. Without them, I could not have prospered in the harsh environment.
Summer 2012 Participant
I learned a lot about myself and the country which I was born in. I learned about religions, language and the people of India but most importantly the living standards and ways in India. Living with a host family was a great experience to get an inside look of Indian cultures.
Laura Kathryn Florick, Summer 2012 Participant
The cultural experiences, absolutely--I learned so much by being able to compare my own life here to life in India. Living with various host families and in the ashrams was a real eye opener.
