Branchburg Rotary helps youth experience the world

Abby, Emily and Lauren recently returned home after a two week in Nepal.

It was an eye-opening experience for the RVCC Rotaract members.

“I think the best part about my exchange was being able to see the world from other perspectives and making global friendships,” Lauren says of his Rotaract Youth Exchange experience.

All students were sponsored by Branchburg Rotary Club and The Asha Project. While in Nepal, the youths participated in various activities and programs. They had opportunity to learn and interact with Rotaract members from Nepal.  Rotary Exchange Student is also a young ambassador, sharing their ideas, culture, and making friends in a distant part of the world.

This program aims to promote peace and inter-country understanding, while providing a challenging and enriching experience for student participants. Many students say it is a life-changing experience. For the last two years, Rotary send twelve students to Nepal.

This coming December, Branchburg Rotary will be sending additional Rotaract students to Nepal.

Branchburg Rotary encourages learning more about being a youth exchange student before considering making an application. Contact Dr. Tulsi R. Maharjan,  PDG, trm7510@gmail.com or 908-369-4318 to learn more. The Asha Project website also has more information about former exchange students: http://www.theashaproject.org
