In the northwest of India is the state of Rajasthan, “The Land of Kingdoms,” where once chivalrous warrior princes built hilltop forts and camels raced across the scorched Thar Desert. In the state capital of Jaipur, experience an India beyond the reach of tourists while making a difference in the lives of Indian children. Teach conversational English to students at a traditional Indian public school, experiencing the educational system in classrooms ranging from 6th to 12th grade.
