STUDENT TESTIMONIALS:

“The Reimagining India program has opened my mind and softened my heart more than any other course I have taken. India is a complex country with unique challenges and incredibly innovative solutions and I truly thank Team IndoGenius for helping me to realise the importance of India in my everyday life. I am very grateful for the experiential learning model which allowed me to search for lessons that applied to my career in education, while also being exposed to ideas that hadn’t ever crossed my mind. Thank you for this life-changing experience!”

This program was beneficial to me personally as it continually inspired me to learn, fuelling my curiosity outstandingly.  I believe that my time in India reaffirmed my desire to do something much larger than myself in this life. Whatever that may be, will be without a doubt with reference to my time in India on this fantastic program.
