Our Vision

JBI is an international community of friends committed to education, language learning, and youth empowerment—in a culture freed of caste prejudice and discrimination. 

We collaborate with India-based individuals and youth-led teams to implement  small, sustainable projects, including meditation retreats, communicative English workshops, leadership training, cross-cultural mentoring and arts events. Learn more!
