Join me on a unique exploratory tour to India with Global Citizens Network

Global Citizens Network (GCN) is a nonprofit cultural immersion and volunteer program based in Minneapolis. Named one of the four “Best Volunteer Vacations” by National Geographic in 2007, participants recount their cross-cultural expeditions with GCN as being among the most powerful, meaningful experiences of their lives. GCN seeks to share and promote the values of peace, justice, tolerance, cross-cultural understanding and global cooperation by providing opportunities for cross-cultural expeditions with indigenous and other rural peoples around the world.

Join me and GCN staff on an exploratory tour to three unique communities in south Indian – including Tamil Naidu, Pondicherry and Andhra Pradesh. Become part of the network committed to collaborating on sustainable development efforts around the world.

The cost of the trip is $1,850 (not including international airfare) and includes room, board, domestic transportation in India and international emergency medical insurance.
