Journey of Outreach - Celebrating Differences, Melting Divisions

After a month-long planning and orientation at Asia Plateau, the team embarked on this outreach adventure into the heartland of India.  Many had turned away from expectations, societal norms and pressures, to dedicate their being to a greater value that they believed could transform the world.  Traversing 33112 km, with people from 10 countries joining the team at various times over 9 months, the team shared the life-changing principles of IofC to communities and groups of people in far flung parts of India and her neighbours.
