Up into the Himalayas – Dharamsala
Heading north into the foothills of the Himalayas, our team will move to Macleod Ganj, located 2100 m. (6800 ft.) up on a ridge above Dharamsala and in the upper reaches of the Kangra Valley. We’ll be partnering with Students for a Free Tibet as we work on campaigns to communicate the challenges faced by Tibetans both in their homeland, as well as in their refugee community beyond its borders. We’ll also have the chance to meet with groups working to improve the lives of Tibetan refugees through education and vocational training. Our time here will give us unique insight into a worldwide student activist network, the local Himalayan culture (Himachali), and the efforts to sustain the transplanted culture of the refugee community.
More than that, we’ll also have the chance to hike some epic trails, practice yoga, or take a cooking, music or language class!
