Here is a great opportunity for global policy students. The target audience is 18 to 26 year olds. Sandhya is open to considering some older students (likely not mid career).
I am passing along an invitation from one of our MPA graduates, Sandhya Gupta. She and her husband Sarit have founded a policy institute in the State of Himachal Pradesh. Two years ago, I visited Sandhya and Sarit as the construction of this amazing facility was underway. It is now open and I want to urge you to consider this opportunity and help spread the word.

Here is Sandhya's message to me:
We are ready to host our very first summer camp at Sambhaavnaa Institute. We invite students to join us for a six week summer course (May 21 - June 30, 2012) at the Sambhaavnaa Institute that aims at providing students a fresh window/lens to viewing development, economics, society, policy and politics. Through 2 weeks of interactive sessions with activists, thinkers, academics and experts from various fields and four weeks of hands on field work with organisations committed to change, this course attempts to sharpen their skills for critical analysis of, and a overall perspective to, the challenges facing our country today.
