We bring back their childhood. Trinita
Trinita has three childrens homes, two of them in Kolkata.
The Kolkata multi-purpose centre includes a boys home
and also an office. The boys, aged 6 to 18 years, have
been rescued from the leather industry and from drug
peddling. They attend state schools. The girls centre is in
Hoogley. The girls were mostly doing domestic work and
are now in full-time education. There is a girls high
school, as part of a government school.
Trinita has a home at Coochbehar near Darjeeling, a border
area between Bangladesh, Bhutan, Assam and Nepal. This
home was opened in 2008 and is now a permanent cottage
where eighteen disabled and trafficked boys live. Trinita
works with the local and railway police to rescue the boys
who are in full-time schooling.
Trinita also runs a rural artisans programme for marginalised
women, including training in crafts.
The Christians Aware group will visit the Trinita work in
Kolkata, and will then spend most of the visit in
Coochbehar, working in the rural centre and the childrena
home. There will also be an opportunity to visit the
surrounding, very beautiful area.
