Thursday, 15 September 2011


Just got back from 4 days in Kolkata!  Sitting by the river with Ayang for a couple of hours and talking was awesome...

I also got to see my old friend Avi who is now in 12th standard and studying really hard - he wants to go to college and study economics next year - amazing for a young boy who has grown up in the slums beside a pond in the house only just bigger than a double bed!  I also saw Dora and her family who are working with children in a slum community these days and also living in the same community.

Of course I also went to the new House of Hope building and it's sooo amazing!!!  The renovations have taken two months but now they have totally given up renting the old building and have moved everything to the new place.  The opening was last week and 150 people came to the celebration.  The Shelter opened again to the children on Monday this week and they're expecting a big crowd to fill all the amazing newly painted great looking rooms.  Thanks to everyone who helped to make this Shelter for children and young people a reality.
