News from India

Christine Durocher's field trip

Christine Durocher, president of CCI's Board of directors, just came back from a field trip in India. The Rescue Foundation, one of our local partners, introduced her to Jyoti : “I met Jyoti at the Rescue Foundation’s office, where she told me her story with the help of Triveni Archiya, the founder of the Rescue, who has dedicated her life to rescuing young girls like Jyoti from Indian brothels and giving them hope again...As a child, in the distant Himachal Pradesh, she was married by her family to an older man that would beat her. When she fled, she fell into a trafficker’s trap.” To read the whole story, click here

Nanny's story

"There are moments of sadness and desperation, where we have the impression we are banging our heads against a brick wall or fighting against the weight centuries-old traditions. There is Nanny, joyful Nanny with whom I have shared so many badminton games and walks in the countryside around the Rainbow Centre; Nanny married too young...And then there are rays of sunshine. There is this dad, also from this world of fishermen in Andhra Pradesh, who spontaneously sang during a parents meeting a moving tune about child marriage and education for girls...” Click here to read the whole story.
 


New school
CCI is happy to launch a new project in India! A second school will open with our local partner Kid Power. This school will welcome  children of another sector of Chittababu’s slum. The objective of this project is to ensure that those children are ready to integrate a regular public school, after 6 to 12 months.
 







Ganesh Project
 
CCI is joining Engineers Without Borders Quebec (http://www.isfq.ca/en/) to build an extension to the Rescue Foundation's buildings. Five young engineers and engineering students will travel to India in the summer of 2015. The number of young girls relased by the Rescue Foundation increases every year. The safe houses' capacities to receive the young girls are becoming restricted. For example, Pune’s centre housed 27 girls in 2007. Today, there are more than one hundred girls in that centre. It is crucial to have a safe and healthy environment to accommodate these victims of sexual exploitation. The extensions projects are necessary and urgent.
