Insights Abroad | Challanges and Costs


Since this program is designed to be an intensive cultural immersion, certain aspects of it may be both physically and emotionally challenging.

India is currently emerging as a global economic power, which has triggered massive changes in both urban and rural societies. For India, it is a time of complicated self-reflection and questioning, as an ancient and traditional society confronts modern economic and social challenges.

The participants in this program may find some of their preconceived notions about both urban and rural India challenged and tested during these demanding three weeks.

In addition, the climate of Rajasthan is hot and dry, and the rural excursions may involve traveling in mountainous or harsh terrain. The rural home stay with poor subsistence farmer families will be particularly challenging the comfort levels of the participants.

However, those coming with an open mind and a healthy attitude to learn and experience from this rich and stimulating environment, will be well situated to enjoy personal growth and development.
