Join us in February of 2021 on a journey to India filled information and interaction with the Kiran Anjali Project (KAP)! Our trip takes you to the Nizam state of Hyderabad in the south of India, where we will engage with many of KAP projects in support of educating underserved girls in India in Hyderabad and Bangalore, and see some of the heritage sights. We will end in Delhi and Agra taking in sights and sounds, and witnessing the monument of love – The Taj Mahal!
Explore the rich cultural heritage and beauty of Ladakh, India while learning photography and visual storytelling skills from Merrill Images. In partnership with the Ladakh Arts & Media Organization (LAMO), we will also help showcase the vital work of Ladakhi non-profits that are preserving cultural heritage and fostering sustainable development
Ladakh (Little Tibet):
Learn, Serve, Immerse
Once an independent Buddhist kingdom at the crossroads of vital trade routes between China and the Middle East , Ladakh, often called “Little Tibet” or “Land of the Broken Moon,” is one of the last places in the world where the Buddhist way of life is unrepressed. Tour highlights include the opportunity to contribute meaningfully in the village of Stok by living, working and learning with a host Ladakhi family, and to participate in a community service project with students from the Siddhartha School Project. During the home-stay part of our tour, your family will be immersed in the Ladakhi communal culture and gain a deep understanding of the Buddhist culture and traditions of this stunning region.
South India is a beautiful part of the country which offers similarly colorful cultural experiences that North India does, but at a more relaxed pace which we found more ideal for traveling with children. We were impressed with the natural beauty of South India’s forests, backwaters, spice plantations, and safari opportunities in wild life sanctuaries! We offer customized tours for families or groups to South India, similar to our recent exploration in two of South India’s states, Kerala and Karnataka.
