Planting seeds of Leadership
forum
360° VIEW
I am Katherine Christy, a visitor from the US, at Don Bosco Navajeevan, Ramanthapur (Hyderabad). Here`s my viewpoint of a rather enriching day involving children engaged in making the world a better place through their membership in the Human Rights Clubs. 27 April 2015 marked the conclusion of the Human Rights Clubs summer camp for Government school children hosted by PARA (People`s Action for Rural Awakening) and partnered by Don Bosco Mondo. In the past year, PARA has initiated 428 human rights clubs spread across 7 districts in 366 state run schools of the two states for Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. There is total membership of 20,259 students in the clubs.

NEED FOR HEALING CENTRES: WILL THE CONGREGATION RISE TO THE (RADICAL) CHALLENGE? Holding Up to the Light - 24
forum
360° VIEW
My intervention in the General Assembly of GC 27 for a Statement (supported by other Chapter members as well) expressing regret for abuses by Salesians and commitment to caring for the survivors did not carry through, as mentioned in an earlier SpeakUp. However the need for providing support and care for those involved in abuse found some expression in the early drafts of the Final Document of the Chapter. I intervened during the discussion on these, pleading for the Congregation`s support for setting up Healing Centres.
