Thanks to this program it became possible for me to discover spirit, soul and mind of this country. I have seen many examples of what human beings should be in an ideal world.

What We Do
At ITD we set the scene for profound inter-cultural experiences. Our work brings together professionals and/or students from around the world to share cultures, exchange ideas, deepen understanding, and spread knowledge. The programs we offer include a wide range of topics: from developing civic education curricula to exploring minority integration in the West, from promoting indigenous visual arts to studying US culture and democracy. With their new-found knowledge and their experience of dynamic engagement, our participants return to their countries enriched by their exchange, and re-charged by new and challenging ideas. In their own words it is "an experience of a lifetime."
