CERES Global return from India and Cuba trips

CERES Global are back from a really busy few months away in India and Cuba! In India we continued work on the Jamnya Project building new teachers quarters for one of the countries poorest boarding schools. With the help of some of the CERES Site Team and Swinburne Trade students, the buildings is nearing completion.

We also lead separate groups for I.T and Education students from Swinburne and La Trobe Universities, meeting up with community organisations we’ve partnered with over the years of visiting India.

Check out the following links to the project groups and some social media for more on each of their adventures:

So, a very busy period in India for us, and prior to that Sophie had our CERES Outreach Educators Nick and Jane (pictured below) on the CERES Global Cuba trip just when Fidel passed away, an incredible time to be there!
Next trip we’re keeping it local, road tripping in March around Victoria/NSW visiting alternative and off-grid communities, talking sustainability and food production, indigenous heritage, transition towns, permaculture, and discussing the triumphs and challenges of building community and sharing sustainable lifestyles.
