Impact India Study Abroad Program
The Impact India Study Abroad program allows you to see the world as a classroom…and provides unique experiences to teach you something about yourself. The program is designed to bridge cultural barriers and create global understanding through a rich, eye-opening, perspective-building, cultural experience that will challenge you to step outside of your comfort zone and expose you to a way of life completely unlike your own.
Impact India is an international exchange program that is operated by the Rekha & Sudhir Puranik Foundation’s Vision International Learning Center, a residential school for impoverished students in Pune, India. Located in the mountainous region five kilometers outside Pune city limits, the Puranik Foundation relies solely on alternative and renewable energy sources to generate electricity, cook and clean. It’s an ideal environment for service learning activities focusing on alternative energy, agriculture, and education. Imagine living in the dormitories and experiencing day-to-day activities with local Indian students and villagers. You will gain a deeper understanding of India’s rich culture and a new perspective on the country and its social and economic challenges and opportunities. The Impact India Study Abroad program will enrich your life and leave a lasting impression on your view of the world.
