Portraits of India
India is the birthplace of yoga, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism.

This 3-week program allows participants to experience ancient temples and traditional Indian art and architecture. Living in New Delhi, one of the world's most vibrant modern cities, students also will have the opportunity to meet educators and visit a rural village to meet local students and teachers in the Pardada Pardadi Vocational School for Girls.
