Support to Rahki's fondation

Once again this year, the Donations Commission of the Order of St. Gabriel, which is chaired by Ambassador Jürg Staübli, funded the action supported by the Rakhi association and its President, Mrs. Danièle Brochier, during her 7 weeks of presence in Tamilnadu from February to March 2017.

PURCHASES AND DONATIONS OF GOATS.

Our support helped to buy 50 goats

The goats are then, under the direction of the village chief, offered to each family. The association thus contributed this year to the purchase of 50 full goats which were offered in 4 villages.
Mr. Kalyani left his teaching job to defend the rights of "Irulas" semi-nomadic population out of caste, often highly discriminated. He has also created a school for children aged 5 to 13 from very poor families.
 
The project to build 3 new classes in this school is planned for the month of October 2017, to receive children "Irulas". The Montessori method is applied for the youngest.

SHANTI COMUNAUTY BASED REHABILITATION CENTER.

 
The new rehabilitation center for disabled children was inaugurated on Friday 17 February.
