For the past nine years, I have been taking students to South India on a social justice short course. The next opportunity to travel to Hyderabad, India is in late December 2018. Students in the course have an opportunity to immerse themselves in Indian culture, deepen their knowledge of social justice issues, and learn about creative problem solving and effective on the ground action from social change agents in Hyderabad and Kadapa. Before the trip, students participate in a service learning project to spread the word about Aarti Home and Voice4Girls, two organizations changing the futures of low-income girls in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
