India: Social Impact in the Community

Become a Global Citizen in India as you immerse yourself in the local culture of Dharamshala, inspiring children to love learning and creativity, and to speak English so they can get better jobs and prosper. Then, how about a tour of the best sights India has to offer!

Challenge Snapshot

You’ll spend two weeks in Palampur, helping children to improve their English and literacy skills, as well as STEM, creative arts and fun sports. And you’ll be contributing far beyond those two weeks, because being able to speak English is a game-changer for children here – it means unlike 45% of the country’s poor and illiterate, they can get good jobs and enjoy a bright future.
