In early January 2017, ICA India’s Adivasi Ashram in Chikhale Village hosted six students from Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina, USA. The details of the trip were coordinated by Emerging Ecology USA in conjunction with ICA India. The Guilford students joined in many of the activities of the Chikhale school’s sports day activities and attended the annual program on Thursday evening. Three of the Guilford College students were on the school’s lacrosse team – they showed the Chikhale students the basics of the game (see photo). The interchange provided an opportunity for appreciating both the differences in perspectives and the similarities which hold cultures together in the 21st Century.
