Tour India With Gandhi's Grandsons
Group members traveling commit to contributing $1000 per person, for a collective goal of raising $10,000 for the Gandhi Memorial School to create either a new classroom or a water well. Travelers will also see significant sights in towns including Mumbai, New Delhi, Agra (Taj Mahal), and Jaipur.
The trip begins with a visit to M.K Gandhi's residence in Mumbai, visits to Women's India Trust and MarketShare, organizations focused on women's empowerment, education and vocational development, the group contribution and visit to Sunanda Gandhi Memorial School in Kolhapur and a meeting with Verala HIV prevention program. The optional extension includes a visit to the Taj Mahal and a tour of Old and New Delhi including Delhi Street Walk guided by former street children now supported by important youth development programs. The experience is not voluntourism but is instead an opportunity to travel and see a place from a different angle than one might usually experience. The trip includes carbon offset and promises to be a life-changing journey.
The trip will cost around $3,300 plus the $1,000 donation for standard accommodations or there is a five-star option for around $6,000. Go Philanthropic also does custom travel for individuals, family and groups.
