    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our state is also known as the "Land of Festivals". We have 16 tribes in Nagaland and every tribe has their own language and costume. 2 hours away from Dimapur there is the capital Kohima where the famous "Battle of Kohima" was fought during the world war 2 alongside the British against the Japanese.

    Hornbill festival is celebrated ever year in the month of December. It is the biggest State cultural festival in India.

    Cultural exchange has pros both ways, while the workawayers help us preserve our culture, they learn get to immerse into the local culture and learn the rich art forms of dances, of songs, of crafts and cooking local ethnic dishes. They get to mingle with the locals and experience unique hospitality and friendly nature of the locals.

    Nagaland is in itself is a unique mixture of tribes and cultures. The school is a mini Nagaland with all different tribes and custom of at least 15 culturres on a mini will be an interesting, rather exciting experience for any visitor. It also has majority percent of underprivileged deprived children, it gives visitors opportunity to teach, to help and reach out.
