India

From the frozen summits of the Himalayas to the tropical jungle of Kerala, and from the lonely deserts of Rajasthan to the teeming urban centers of Mumbai and Delhi, India is often referred to as a continent rather than a single country.India’s borders encompass a huge range of landscapes, cultures, and people. In India one encounters both the modern and the old world, in constant juxtaposition as Western culture meets traditional values. Experience all this colorful and energetic country has to offer, from its passion for ‘Bollywood’ and cricket to its colorful local festivals and street vendors.

India is one of the world’s fastest-growing economies, though this is often overshadowed by its rapid population increase – By 2028, India’s population is expected to outnumber China’s. Increasing population and rapid urbanization have created huge challenges in terms of poverty, lack of education, child protection, and gender disparity for young people living in India’s crowded urban slums.

Whilst being more famous for cricket, India also has one of the oldest soccer cultures in the world, dating back to the 18th Century – and in many areas soccer is the number one sport. You’ll join the world-respected non-profit organization Dream a Dream, empowering underprivileged kids to overcome adversity, using the medium of sports and arts to develop critical life skills.
