Exposure visit of Lycee Cours Bastide School, France
19 students from France accompanied by Sr. Hazel D’Lima and Sr. Pascal Puppinck came for the exposure visit to Sakhya – Women’s Guidance Cell on 4th February 2016. Based on the concept of “Atithi Devo Bhav” they were given a warm Indian traditional welcome. Sr. Hilda Fernandes introduced Sakhya’s objective and established the identity of Sakhya. Through an audio visual presentation, she highlighted the concerns and intervention strategies.
The students raised queries with regards to the Indian political, socio, cultural system and how it addresses the issue of violence and the role of Sakhya. The students also got to know the intensity of violence through the cases counseled by Chatush Singh, Counselor of Sakhya.
The students and visitors expressed their appreciation for the concerted efforts invested by the team to address gender issues, the strategies adopted by Sakhya and the overall mission of Sakhya to work to end violence against women. We thank them for their generous gift and contribution to Sakhya in cash and in kind.
Once again we Thank You. We look forward for your partnership in Future.
