This trip is intended for high school members of YDN. Just south of Delhi, in the Indian state of Rajasthan, sits the bustling city of Jaipur. Known as the Pink City, due to its historic pink palace and city walls, Jaipur will dazzle you with its sites and sounds, rich culture and incredible food. Ambedkar Nagar is a slum in the center of town where we have set up a community center for children and women. There is no shortage of need here, so please take the magical journey to India.

You will sleep on a twin bed with ar conditioning. Your food will all be freshly prepared by experienced staff that uses safe techniques to prevent any food-borne illnesses.
