New CJ School for differently abled children in Allahabad Province

Differently abled children are subjected to various forms of discrimination and due to the social stigma associated with disabilities; families have become victims of discrimination and human rights abuses. To counteract this and to give these children a future and parents satisfaction, the “Darshana” School was started. The school runs for 29 special students with four special teachers and two helpers .The staff gives individual care to each student, academic training, occupational and speech therapy. Students have shown marked improvement and two of them have joined normal school.  The students take part in all the activities and celebrations of the school. The teachers instil in the students self-confidence and reassure them that they are wonderful members of society. We also train parents who underestimate the capabilities of the children, to see them as individuals with unique talents and abilities. Though very challenging and at times nearly impossible, we have great hope in God that these students will contribute to society.  (text and photos: Jaya CJ)

Six sister students in Via Nomentana 250 - Rome

The community of the sisters in Via Nomentana has grown since the end of January.  Six sisters will stay with us until the end of June. They are all taking part in a formation course organized by the UISG (Union of the International Superiors General) here in Rome. There are 44 participants all together. All of them are either in a community of their own congregation or they have found a place in another religious community. 
Two of the six sisters who live with us are already working as formators of young people interested in religious life. Others will take on this mission when they will be back in their Provinces/Regions.
They come from different Countries: three from India, one from Kenya, one from East Timor and one from South Africa. Three of them are Loreto Sisters, two belong to the CJ and one is a member of the Franciscan Sisters of Sießen. They all had a good start and are now looking forward to the various formation modules that are yet to come.    (Text and photos/eka)
