BECAUSE TOGETHER WE ARE STRONG

Namaste

I am Rena .

I am the lead instructor at one of our oldest women’s sewing centre at Piani. I wanted to share with you just how many girls and women we have helped during the last few years since the centre opened.

Over 250 !

Once the girls and women graduated from us they have chance for loan free interest for sewing machine. Over 227 took that loan. The other ones moved away from the area

They are from surrounding villages also; every single machine has put money for the women in their own hands for the first time.

Because even women who have completed their training are welcome and our part of the community many return to the centre for companionship and mutual support because together we are strong.

Listen to Riya, woman from the sewing centre.

Friendship support, laughter , a safe place for us to meet and talk our entre is so much more than a training centre , it is an empowering heart of  the women’s community for many kilometres around . Thank you so much for helping and supporting us , please come and visit us, you will be so much welcome!

Thank you all.

Rena

FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD!

Happy Food!
Happy Food!

In Bihar and Jharkhand, nine out of every 10 children aged 6-23 do not get an adequate diet. The nutrition and health status of children in these two States has been found to be “critically low” in comparison to the national standard.

According to National Family Health Survey (NFHS-4, 2015-16) data, only 7.5% and 7.2% of children in Bihar and Jharkhand respectively in this age group receive an adequate diet, according to a trend analysis of the NFHS-4 data released by thr government.

“Malnourishment in early years is directly linked to maternal health…only 3.3% of mothers in Bihar and 8% of mothers in Jharkhand had access to full antenatal care services,” said a CRY release on its trend analysis. “Moreover, more than one-third of the total births in the two States continue to remain home births.”

 “Child malnutrition is an irreversible phenomenon in the lives of children. Its effects are felt through adolescent and adult life”, 

In the villages where we are providing a protein rich healthy meal on a regular basis

malnutrition has been wiped out.

It is a national disgrace as a previous prime minister said that with India developing its economy

India is home to millions of desperately poor people struggling to survive.

The level of poverty here is incredible, whist the rich get super rich.

We can’t change the world but with your help

we have transformed the health and futures of so many children.

Thank you all

This is Riya with another update.. ( we have changed the names)

Here are some stories of the children that have come to Rescue Junction since the last update..

Name- Monika kumari
Age- 16 yrs
Her parents died when she was a child. A girl who lived in her neighbourhood whom she called " didi" took care of her and helped grew her without her parents. But as she grew up the girl treated her like a servant and made her do all the work at house and field and not let her study. And the girl also worked in Delhi and when she went to Delhi she left Monika with her younger sister at home. When she grew even more the girl took Monika with her to Delhi and made her do household works in of the houses in delhi.  But when the girl came to Delhi she took Monika's salary which she earned and even stole things from the owner’s house and the blame was given to Monika and she was beaten by her owner. Monika escaped from this hell and ran away and came to Gaya junction. Then a boy handed her to a woman named pinki and she handed her to GRP (Government Railway Police)  Gaya and she came to Rescue Junction. After training in mobile phone repairing she is now living with college girls in safe accommodation and is now safe and well still getting the support from RJ with our community outreach programme. She has a boyfriend from a good and caring family who have also sheltered and helped her.  

Name- Shivram age- 13 yrs
District - Jalpaiguri , West Bengal

He lived at his village and worked with his family as construction labourers. He went to school but due to poverty he went to Kanpur with one of the person from his village who ran a hotel in Kanpur and he started working in the hotel and earned the equivalent of $2 USD or about 1.50 GBP a day. He worked at the hotel from 4 a.m. in the morning till 8 p.m. in the night and then went to work at his master's house. After doing his work when he went to sleep his drunken master came and harassed him by beating him. Afrer so many beatings he got the courage to run away and came to Gaya station from Kanpur station. When GRP. Gaya found him alone at the station they handed him over to the Rescue Junction. He has been returned to his family but with supervision from the local child welfare committee who are helping him to re-join mainstream education.

There will be more stories of children who come to us for protection and care in our next update,, along with an overview of all of our work at the centre which you help support.

 Thank you so much
