Tushita Foundation: In 2009, fired by the desire to give back to society, Tushita Travels founded the Tushita Foundation, a trust intended to promote a betterment in the living conditions of the less fortunate in the country.

The Tushita Foundation chose to serve the people of Amber a town that didn’t benefit much from being in the shade of the much visited Amber Fort.

We thus decided to open a house of learning and empowerment for the community in the centre of Amber to complement their children’s school education with project base learning in English. In order to give them a very high level of English, we chose to invite well-educated students from the best universities in the world to come and share their passions with the children of Amber.

Tushita now wishes to hire a Pedagogical Coordinator to join the Tushita Foundation in Amer. We are looking for a candidate who will act as a liaison between the local teachers, the volunteers, the students and the coordinators abroad. A person capable of being a bridge between cultures.
