During the first part of the program students will live with Tibetan roommates while on the Sarah campus and will take most meals in the cafeterias. During the second part of the program students will live with Tibetan families in McLeod Ganj, the community immediately surrounding the IBD. In the final part of the program, students will live together in a guesthouse in McLeod Ganj while they engage in independent research. During the program students participate in frequent field trips as a group when we will stay in hostels, hotels, and guesthouses.
Wherever we stay, we will treat the place and the residents with respect and care. If there are any challenges in any housing situation, or anything you are not sure about, talk with a program leader!
