Travel with AJWS to


A unique way to see the world; where your presence will make a difference.

Join us in India—land of color and contrast, bustling commerce and throngs of humanity—to explore the complex social challenges facing this country in flux. From Mumbai to Kolkata, we will wind through the alleys of dense slums and modern skyscrapers to meet activists working with marginalized communities in Indian society. Their work to promote the rights of migrant laborers, women, marginalized castes and tribal communities, will open our eyes to some of India’s most pressing challenges and the incredible grassroots solutions helping people overcome them. On this extraordinary trip, we will witness first hand the progress that AJWS’s grantees are making in revitalizing and empowering their own communities.
