Hi, my name is Roshen. I co-ordinate the SJPD program on the India side. This is the 5th SJPD I am part of; I love the program.
I co-ordinate the International education programs at Visthar. In addition to SJPD, we facilitate study abroad programs for 5 other colleges/universities from US and UK. These programs look at contemporary social justice issues that are important for all of us.
As the new semester starts, I am both excited and nervous. I am excited to work with another group of young learners who are earnest and curious. I am nervous that all the arrangements we have made go through smoothly.
The safety and health of the participants are on the top of my mind right now. Over the last 17 years, we have learnt to take precautions to ensure safety and good health of the participants. The Visthar team is reviewing those precautions this week. When participants fall ill – and they might, despite all the precautions – we try to provide a comfortable environment where they can bounce back quickly.
Please wish us all good luck as your friend/family-member embarks on an important journey in her life!
