People on the Go !

The last two weeks have been very heavy with travels all around the diocese, and a couple of meetings in Kolkata. On 30-31 July, a review meeting on the Community Based Disaster Preparedness programs supported by Caritas India and Catholic Relief Services was held at Kolkata. Fr. Herman Kinda, the Assistant Director of SWI, Ms. Rekha Soren, the Project Coordinator, and Fr. R. Puthumai A. Nazarene, the Director, attended the meeting. Puthumai was also made the coordinator for preparing clear indicators for Sustainability of the CBDP program. On 1 August, a meeting of all partners and prospective partners of FVTRS met at Kolkata for getting more clarity on the skill based programs supported by FVTRS.

On 30 July a team of officials from UNICEF led by the Program Officer (Emergency), Mr. Mukesh Puri and Ms. Parnasri (Emergency Officer, West Bengal - UNICEF) visited North Dinajpur and Malda districts. They had several meetings-- with the District Administrative officials, with the staff of SWI and few other private meetings with the Director of SWI, and few other NGO partners. For their visit to SWI, an elaborate preparation had been done by Ms. Bimala Baru and Ms. Rekha Soren and their staff. Puthumai A. Nazarene did some presentation for them at the meeting.
