RGU: Go India
Support helped a group of students spend four weeks delivering health, nutrition and sports sessions to young people in India.
The twelve students, who studied a mix of subjects, including Applied Sport and Exercise Science, Nutrition, Event Management, PR and Media, Communication Design and Journalism, travelled to Manipal and Mumbai last year.
Over the course of their stay, the students worked with students from Manipal University to design, promote and deliver a community health, nutrition and sport project for young people in the community, which addressed local health issues.
During their time in Mumbai, they spent time learning more about the ways in which local organisations promote physical activity. They then delivered a presentation about their experiences with invited guests at The British Council.
The RGU: GO India project was made possible thanks to funding support by the university, through contributions to the RGU Foundation and the Scottish Government's Outward Mobility Fund.
