Against all odds: Making change in Vrindavan, India

In January 2008, 24 University students, many of them from the College of Design, traveled to India for a course led by Virajita Singh (Center for Sustainable Building Research), entitled Sacred India: Architecture, Environment, Spirit. The students did substantial hands-on work there with two non-profits in the town of Vrindavan, Northern India.

Rupa Raghunath Das, who leads one of the non-profits -- Food for Life, Vrindavan -- will talk about the humanitarian and service work the group is doing in rural and small town India. The lecture takes place on Tuesday, March 25, 2008, 12-1 p.m., in 225 Rapson Hall.
