Tour of India and Prosperity Rings’ Enterprises
“The resplendent and magnificent Thrissur Elephant Festival in early May is the focal point of the 13 day tour. Touring Rotarians and other donors will also see the results of their contributions as they visit and acknowledge firsthand the thrilling accomplishments of formerly destitute women who turn micro credit loans into their own enter-prise. Tour members will be requested to teach a simple craft, trade, or service to a group of potential borrowers. Rotarians from eight Rotary clubs are on hand to assist with our training project.
In addition to the amazing Elephant Festival, tour members will experience the historic Hindu Meenakshi Amman Temple; the bizarre and colorful Kathakali dance theater; a houseboat trip through rural life; Idyllic spice, tea and rubber plantation visits; and other charms of Southern India.
Round trip flights run between $1,200 and $1,300 from Seattle to Cochin (Kochi).and can be less with a definite commitment. Land travel, accommodations and meals would be approximately $1,800.
Total cost: Approximately $3,000.
