India Service Learning Trip 2013
Dates: Two Weeks in late May/early June
Cost: approximately $3,300
Details: This trip will focus on engaging with the socially marginalized of India: people who are slum and village dwellers, people who live in leper colonies, and people who are disabled.
Our time will be spent in service to an indigenous mission organization called Word for the World.
We will explore and learn the social and religious climates of India as it relates to the current efforts of the Church. We will be based in Chennai, Madurai, and Pondicherry (former French colony on Indian Ocean coast where tsunami hit).
Our lodging will be in missionary houses with a very Indian diet for the two weeks.
Sightseeing will include Indian ocean, Hindu temples, historic Christian locations in southern India, and rickshaw rides.
