Jodhpur is a popular tourist destination featuring many palaces, forts and temples. The city is known as the ‘SunCity’ for the bright sunny weather it enjoys throughout the year. It is also referred to as the ‘Blue City’ due to the indigo tinge of the white washed houses around the Mehrangarh Fort. The focus of the camp «Blue Mahal – Art of Living» is to create awareness on environmental issues to children and the community, provide community service on health and hygiene and to introduce the school children to creative learning methods. The local NGOs, municipal council or/and School Management Committee will be the partners of the camp.



FSL-India (Field Services and Inter-cultural Learning - India) was legally incorporated in 2001, with the support of like-minded national and international organizations with a primary purpose of bringing about global transformation, progress and growth through youth exchange programs.
