Do you have a passion for social, economic and ecological justice? Then join Canadian Jesuits International (CJI) on a learning tour to India in July 2020! Come and discover what faith and justice mean in marginalized communities where Jesuits have been present for several decades.

Visit important historic, social, cultural and religious sites, including the Jesuits’ Indian Social Institute in Delhi and the Taj Mahal in Agra. Travel east to the Darjeeling District of West Bengal to meet people engaged in projects focused on improving human rights, workers’ rights, health, agriculture, food security, education and livelihoods. Complete the tour with a visit to Jesuit social and education centres in the great city of Kolkata.

The approximate cost of the tour is $2,600, which includes all lodging, meals, in-country travel, tips and project donations.
