The group has arrived

We’ve received word from the leaders that the group has arrived in New Delhi, India.


Hello from your leaders, Sarah and Jonathan, and welcome to the Putney community. We can’t wait to meet you all! In less than two weeks, we embark on our month in Ladakh. We hope that you’re getting excited to live and learn in one of the most unique places on earth. Our friendly hosts at SECMOL are eagerly awaiting our arrival, and together we’ve planned lots of great things to do. Bring your trekking shoes and a curious and open mind. See you soon!
