Spend Summer 2015 in India – Join the Global Leader Inme!

Durgha Ramji, who has been actively involved with FYEG over the past few years is currently based in Bangalore, India working with a adventure based skills development organization called 'Infinite Me'.
Her project 'The Global Leader Inme' is a leadership development program for young people centred around adventure based learning, skills development and internship opportunities in rural and urban India. 'The world within the work place is increasingly diverse. The necessity to cross boundaries and be adaptable to work in different settings is key to operating effectively. These soft skills are exactly what employers look for in an increasingly globalised job market where learning to work and thrive in different cultures is an important skill.
We believe the difference we make to the outlook, skills and competency of our participants will translate into positive actions to solve the challenges faced by the world'.
To join the 4 or 8 week programmes being offered in both North and South India contact Durgha on
