JOIN US IN JANUARY 2015


We love India, and we're heading back for our 10th year! CERES Global have built such wonderful friendships, have gained great insight and understanding in to the needs and aspirations of some incredible communities, and now we're able to work together on some fantastic projects. 


The host organisations we work with are all exceptional in the community development and/or environmental work they do. For a description on the organisations we visit and the breadth of work they do click here.


This trip CERES Global will focus on engagements in Mumbai and in Pal. We have a number of Swinburne University student groups working on an IT project in Pal, a building project in Jamnya, and a community development project in Pitchandikulum, so while they're busy working on their respective projects, we can spend time with ApneAap kids in the Mumbai red light district, and with the local tribal Pal community working on social and environmental challenges.
