Known as the City of Lakes, Udaipur is set amidst a series of picturesque lakes in the northwest state of Rajasthan. Renowned for its stunning setting, mythical architecture, and rich history, Udaipur is a popular tourist destination. 

Despite significant growth in India’s national economy and its mounting presence on the world stage, an astounding 80 percent of India’s citizens live on less than two dollars per day. Udaipur is an ideal setting for GESI students to collaborate with local organizations who work with populations mired in poverty yet determined for a brighter future.
