More Training for the Girls
Greetings to you all from a very very Hot Bihar, it was recently 46C ( thats 115F) . we are praying for the rains to come soon!
Firstly in this report I feel I must mention a micro project which was very much attached to this appeal and has due to the kindness and generosity of so many been successfully funded. This meant we are immediately able to start tailoring and sewing training in addition to craft skills which is a huge boost for the girls. ( see the photo above)
How things have changed here in our area of Bihar. One of the main aims of the centre was to increase community awareness of child trafficking as we cannot have our eyes and ears everywhere. We recently had a further meeting with the Railway Protection Force, (these are the armed guards that travel on many running trains) and it is becoming increasingly difficult for the traffickers to move children. Several agents involved in this "trade" have been arrested as a result of our cooperation with a number of law enforcement agencies. But of course Rescue is not enough, and we need to offer the opportunity to children to learn real skills in a supportive environment which can help change their lives around. This of course is the very nature of this appeal and we appreciate your support very much.
The Trust has a policy on all its appeals on Global Giving, that every single penny we receive from all appeals is directed immediately to the place of need, with no deductions in India for administration or any other purpose. That is our promise to you,
I hope you are feeling the warmth of summer, and with thanks again and good wishes to you all, i will ask one of the girls to write you all a personal note in our next update.
