On the international front

THAILAND: News from the Santikham Centre

Our partner in Thailand, the Foundation for Child Development, welcomes illegal immigrant children and their parents who live in the suburbs of Bangkok.

These past few months, awareness campaigns have been led in the surrounding communities informing residents of the dangers of child labour and the risks to children’s health. The project aims at reinforcing the population’s realisation of the importance of education and its advantages for the young.

INDIA:  The Louise Grenier School

The purpose of this school project is to facilitate the reintegration into the traditional school system of children living in slum areas. In fact, this school teaches those skills the children will need during their academic years, and also those social skills they need to survive in collectives.

Following the project’s success, the Government decided a few months ago to assume management of this transitional school once again.  None of this would have been possible without our fantastic partners in the field, Kidpower India! 

HAÏTI : An opportunity to volunteer

We are still in search of a volunteer to work on our new operational support project! Actually, CCI’s Managing Director made a field visit to MIDADE in Jacmel a few months ago.  The meeting was very positive and a work plan was development as follows:

  • Phase 1: Capacity building work with the partner
  • Phase 2: CCI support of eventual projects

Therefore, within the framework of the first phase, we would like to send a person, with a working knowledge of French, to work on-site in Jacmel by the begining of 2017. We are therefore seeking a motivated volunteer, with international aid experience.

Projects in Québec

Launch of Quebec days of international solidarity (Journées québécoises de la solidarité internationale - JQSI)

Quebec Days of International Solidarity take place each November in twelve regions throughout the Province of Quebec. For its 20th year, its organisers (i.e. organisations working in international cooperation) are asking this important question to the Quebec public: "What role do the media play in the public’s understanding of international challenges, especially regarding North-South relationships?" 

Once again, CCI is in charge of organising these ‘days’ in the Montérégie Region. Many events are being planned, which are detailed as follows (click on this page).

In particular, on November 24, CCI is organising a conference entitled: “Facing Indifference - Can a child’s photograph change things?”, focussing on the use of children’s images in international efforts, and their inspirational effect.  This event will take place at 150 rue Grant, in Longueuil, starting at 7:00pm.

Retrospective on the World Social Forum

The 12th World Social Forum was held in Montreal this past August. CCI, through the International Solidarity Committee, organised a workshop-discussion on raising the awareness of  young people regarding international solidarity.

This event took place on August 10 in the PK Pavillon of the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM). Five organisations presented projets touching this theme: Educonnexion, FEM International, Défi-Belgique-Afrique, ASMADE and CCI.

This three-hour workshop enabled the presenters to sensitise and inform the public regarding the  the challenges to international solidarity that must be tackled by education, but also to share and identify good practices in the sector.  

A move for our Managing Director

CCI’ Founder and Managing Director, Roxana Robin, has been subject to certain health issues for the past several years. Therefore, she decided to return to France with her family in order to  receive the appropriate care and follow-up treatment she needs.

Ms. Robin is taking advantage of this new start to solidify a project which has been dear to CCI for a while now: to open a CCI branch in France!

We will certainly make sure to keep you informed of the progress of this project!  She will, despite her change in residence, still ensure close management of the organisation, and she is always available for meetings and conferences. It is her intention to travel regularly to Canada to meet with our partners and supervise CCI’s activities with the team and the management board.
