INDIA is a country of incredible contrasts and extremes. From the snowcapped Himalayas in the north to sun-drenched beaches of the south; from its decrepid colonial buildings to its high fashion designer boutiques; from peaceful yoga ashrams and Buddhist monasterys to the glamour and glitz of Bollywood; from ramshackle rural villages to high-tech global call centers - India has it all; making it the crown-jewel of the SAGE Program.
SAGE OFFERS a wider variety of activities and options in India than any of our competitors. Help preserve snow leopard habitat or visit nomadic shepherd settlements in Ladakh. Study Tibetan Buddhism in Dharamsala and possibly meet His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Work with a grassroots rural development non-profit in Rajasthan. Spend a night in an eco-tourism guesthouse in a traditional Himalayan village. Visit a high-tech call center in New Delhi or a microfinance project in Bangalore. Learn what modern-day followers of Gandhi are doing to promote peace and non-violence. Ride an elephant while looking for tigers in Corbett National Park. SAGE can help you design and carry out just about any trip in India you can imagine.
