Discover Astonishing Kashmir
Nov 23, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Come explore the mysteries of Srinigar and Kashmir and learn about this once in a lifetime opportunity to join the delegation of Global Citizen Journey Kashmir in October, 2018 … or just to hear about the wonders and challenges of Kashmir. Have you wondered why the situation continues to challenge India-Pakistan-China? Did you know it is heavily occupied by the Indian army and over 1000 Kashmiri youth were blinded by pellets last year? Are you called to the enchantment of exquisite Dal lake surrounded by Moghul palaces, tulips and stunning snow capped mountains? Join us for an evening of stories, photos, information, and inspiration with a hands-on taste of the Global Citizen Journey experience!
You’ll learn about GCJ KASHMIR 2018 – next October, when we will join 12 US & European delegates with a diverse delegation of 12 Indians and Kashmiris to live together Srinigar for two weeks to explore the challenges facing Kashmir today, to build relationships across faiths and ethnicities, and to engage in workshops on cultural understanding, compassionate listening and leadership skill-building. We will work with ELFA International (Education and Livelhood for All), our Kashmir host NGO, to bring sanitation, water and empowerment to girls in their village schools.
