Rotary International seeks applicants for group study exchange to India
July 31, 2012 at 2:31 a.m.
Rotary International, through the local Rotary district, will once again sponsor a Group Study Exchange for four non-Rotarians who are employed and between the ages of 25 and 40.
This year, the exchange will be with Kerala, India, called "the land of the gods" for its beauty, and will depart the United States around Jan. 15 and return around Feb. 15. Applicants must be able to be away for at least 30 days with all expenses paid except personal needs. It should be emphasized that this is not a vacation but rather a work/ study exchange with like-minded citizens of India.
The suggested areas of work/study focus include, but are not limited to, maternal and child health, water and sanitation, disease prevention and treatment, basic education and literacy, economic and community development and peace and conflict prevention or resolution.
Selected team members will be prepared and led by a Rotary team leader and together the team will prepare a short presentation that they will give in various cities to Rotary and civic organizations as requested by the host Rotary District.
Anyone interested in pursuing this opportunity, can contact Alan Johnson at 956-389-4300 or by email at ajohnson@the legacyfoundation.org. Applications and information regarding the Group Study Exchange can be found at Rotary.org/gse. The deadline for applications is Sept. 1.
