About Us

At The Happy Llamas, we curate Experiences for participants to show them how their domains work in the real world, and how they approach sustainability. Why?

We believe that the world has a lot to offer, and only on going out and engaging with different cultures in different corners of the world can one get a holistic view of life, and evolve personally and professionally. We also feel strongly about the need to make this planet, the only one that we have, more sustainable.

Keeping these two thoughts in mind, we offer short term experiential learning courses across different domains, aimed at professional development for college students and young professionals. We work with domain and subject matter experts to co-curate these Experiences, which include live projects, workshops, seminars, masterclasses, market visits and interactions with industry professionals.

These courses happen across different geographies, and participants also get an understanding of how businesses adopt sustainable practices to be better prepared for the future.

Our aim is to inspire today’s youth on how to make this world a better place to live for themselves and their peers, and creating positive global impact in their domains of interest.

Come join us in this journey, and be a part of an inclusive and global community of changemakers!

Our Mission

Our Vision

We started The Happy Llamas with the vision of encouraging today’s youth to embrace sustainability (be it environmental, socio-economic, or at a societal level) in their industry, using practical learning and travel as a vehicle.
