Gangtok Home Stay

Since 2009, Carpe Diem Education groups have been visiting Gangtok and staying with us on a regular basis; one group arrives in spring, and the other in fall. Each team has around eight students and 2 leaders. In their weeklong stay in Gangtok, they go off to volunteer in village schools or at centers where there is scope for them to offer practical help - for instance, the group of 2009 Spring seen below went to assist in the repair of a village micro-hydro project.

Carpe Diem 2009 Spring group: Sikkimese journalist, Jigme N. Kazi gives a talk to the group on the history of Sikkim.
