Wondering what its like to walk in Gandhi’s shoes as he struggled to bring about peace and mounted a non-violent campaign for India’s independence? If so, GoPhilanthropic is turning back the hands of time and offering a Gandhian Legacy and Philanthropy tour guided by Gandhi’s grandsons, Dr. Arun Gandhi and Tushar Gandhi. This is a Giving Circle tour, meaning each group member will contribute $1,000 with a collective goal of raising $10,000 for the Sunanda Memorial School.

The grandsons will walk in their grandfather’s footsteps – promoting his principles and philosophy, and encouraging grass-roots rural development in health and education. Participants will come away with an in-depth look at current social and development projects in India such as women empowerment programs, and will have the opportunity to support the Gandhi Memorial School project, and visit significant sights in Mumbai, New Delhi, Agra (Taj Mahal) and Jaipur.

The tour kicks off at Mani Bhavan, the two-story building where Gandhiji stayed while in Mumbai between 1917 and 1934. The building has been converted into a museum and research center and visitors can see the room where he stayed, its picture gallery, the Library Hall and the Terrace where he was arrested on Jan. 4, 1932.
