College Outreach Program

The purpose of our College Outreach Program is to give students the opportunity to be exposed at a grass roots level to rural Indian communities while at the same time learning about the challenges that rural communities face. We want to inspire, motivate, and educate them so that they take something away from the experience and pursue their goals with an open mind.

RIDE works with colleges and universities across the globe to provide a holistic learning experience which can focus on areas such as rural development, child labour, human rights, religion, customs.

RIDE has links across many subject areas and are able to arrange guest speakers from any number of professions and backgrounds. We give direct reason and debate and encourage students to be open and honest when discussing sometimes difficult and sensitive subjects.

We will be happy to discuss a program to suit your both your expectation and budget. Prices can range anywhere from IR 1,000 per student depending on your requirements and needs. We are able to arrange accommodation and food as well as transport (if necessary), workshops, guest speakers, field work, debate and activities.

Past organisations we have worked with include Loyola College, Chennai and Semester at Sea, USA.

If you are interested in our College Outreach Program please email for further information and to discuss your specific requirements.
