Be a part of the legendary HOINA course. This course is in its 11th year and is life-transforming. We will have more videos and reports from students linked here in the next month or so, but here is the main information:
What is HOINA?
HOINA 2010 Homes Of The Indian Nation
HOINA (Homes of the Indian Nation) is a set of two homes (boys and girls) in Andhra Pradesh that takes handicapped, abused and orphaned children all over South India and provides them with shel- ter, food, clothing, medical care, education and a caring HOINA family. Both homes were founded approximately 30 years ago by a Penn State alum, Darlene Large.
What do I have to do to go on a trip?
First, submit your application. If you are selected you will be enrolled in a 2 credit GEOG 293H course in the Spring of 2009. The course is de- signed to familiarize students to Indian culture, current events and help prepare students for their summer abroad. After the summer trip, a follow up 1 credit course will be taken in the Fall of 2010 in order to reflect on experiences and to raise further awareness for HOINA .
Application Deadline: December 2, 2009

How can I get involved?
Every summer, a group of students from the Schreyer Honors College are selected through an application process to travel to India and work alongside the staff and students at HOINA for approximately 3 weeks.
