Are you ready to change your world this summer?
RYS India 2011 gives you a chance to take part in a community service project that will directly improve the lives of the most at-risk and impoverished children in the region. RYS India 2011 will focus on giving nurturing care and attention to impoverished children at a local school in Cochin, India. You may find yourself teaching a group of children in a classroom with no electricity or even under a mango tree with only a chalkboard and your own skills to share.
The RYS India 2011 service project will mainly focus on renovating an old school building which shelters more than 250 impoverished children.
Participants will have an opportunity to share in a life-changing experience, and come to understand a new culture of heart on a personal level. By working together with other RYS members to accomplish shared goals, they will reach toward a world of peace.
The purpose of this project is to train, and support the youth to hone their skills and talents which they will use to recreate the world to be a better place to live in. This project applies a strategy for peace building through service, education, and shared culture, yielding a winning formula for the growth of a more balanced individual.
You will experience the people whose lives you have impacted, and will return home a more confident global citizen with genuine appreciation for our multicultural world.
