DIOCESE OF DURGAPUR
(Church of North India)
CHILDREN’S DEVELOPMENT CENTRES
We are blessed to be able to give nearly 100 children a safe and healthy environment in which they can grow and learn. We give our children the best of care, be it in terms of health via nutrition or medical check-ups, education in some of the best schools in Durgapur, a variety of activities and lessons, and most of all, a stable and Christian upbringing. We try to support our children till they can stand on their own feet which means that we care for them till they complete their graduation. We always try to take as many children in as possible but our waitlists are always brimming over with new cases.
DCSDC HOSTEL, DURGAPUR
The very first of our 4 centers, DCSDC was inaugurated on the 1st of March, 2006. As the oldest center, the Durgapur center has shown us what our centers can achieve. The center provides a wholesome environment to grow up in for 20 children. We have special teachers come and instruct them in different arts which are listed in our Activities section. We give them medical checkups in our onsite Clinic- Good Shepherd Eye Hospital
REV. C.C. PANDE HOSTEL, BANKURA
The second oldest center opening on the 4th of September, 2006. This center is special as most of its 20 students. The children in this hostel are girls who come from extremely impoverished backgrounds. This meant that the children had to be instructed on things such as cleanliness. The team is happy to report that these children have shown an impressive improvement in areas such as politeness, hygiene, behavioral patterns and more.
ST. MARTIN HOSTEL, PURULIA
Built a year after the Durgapur Center, this center is a large space which gives the 40 children who come here the space to engage in all the different activities we offer without being hindered by a lack of space. The center was later added to in 2011, making it a hostel and giving some of the children the option to become hostellers. A special feature of the center is the close bond the St. Barnabas Church congregation has with the children of this center. They give their time to help guide and befriend these children as they grow older.
ST. MICHAEL'S SAFE HOME, BALDAHURA
Inaugurated on the 6th of December, 2014, this center is close to our hearts. This center houses children who are at risk of being trafficked. The region this center is in has a notorious reputation for trafficking humans. The safe home currently cares for 21 children. They attend a state-run school and have access to the many ancillary courses we provide in our centers. All of this gives these children a chance to escape the cycle of poverty they were born into, which is one of the main reasons for trafficking.
