GIK is interested in providing internship opportunities to the youth and welcoming adults visiting India to take part in various GIK activities. The interns will be hosted at Adhya Academy, a learning center that is funded by Generic Indian Kid Non Profit. The primary objective of these internships is to facilitate inter cultural exchange between GIKs and people living abroad. The initiative provides a platform for individuals from different backgrounds and disciplines to participate in impacting social development in India. It also provides an opportunity for immersion in service learning for the youth and at the same time empowers children in difficult circumstances to overcome social exclusion.
