Gaon Chaley Hum is the flagship rural immersion program of Agrasar Foundation to be held from 13th - 15th May, 2016 at Jaisalmer and Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India.
15 delegates will be selected from around the country. They will embark on a life changing journey to Jaisalmer (The Golden City of India) and Jodhpur (The Sun City of India) for exploring village life, rural livelihoods, rain water harvesting etc.
This program will also enable them to deeply connect and critically analyze the life in an Indian village. In long run, we wish to create a pool of leaders, innovators, and social entrepreneurs who can create sustainable solutions for rural India.
