THANK YOU FOR EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED!
We were overwhelmed by the amount of support we received at these activities. Our team had so much fun getting to know new friends (and spending time with old friends!) as we learned more about India’s culture together.
A Summer of STARS may be done for the year, but we are already looking forward to all of the activities for next summer. Have an idea or want to request the return of a previous activity? Follow us on social media to message your ideas and to see updates as next summer approaches!
WELCOME TO A SUMMER OF STARS!
This summer, we are inviting you to experience India firsthand. Starting June 17, we will be holding FREE weekly events to help you learn more about the beautiful culture of India and connect you to the students and communities we serve.
Most of the events will be held locally near our office in Utah Valley, but we will also be hosting two online events for our friends and supporters who live too far to come in person! Follow us on social media to see more details and updates!
