Our Partnership Goals.

With the support of the Guild we plan to develop Seema’s Project as follows.

  1. Start a lunch programme for children of the red-light district.
  2. Double the number of children cared for at the Bori Home.

January 2019

Very early in the New Year our team of four flew out of Edinburgh airport leaving the cold Scottish weather for the warmth of India. After a couple of days in Pune, when we met the Waghmode Foundation Board and visited Kayakalpa Offices in the red-light district, we made the three hour  road trip to visit the children in the Rehabilitation Centre in the village of Bori.  It is always a delight to meet the children again. This was Pam Cairns, co-founder of FTLT, fourth visit to India.  In 2014, Pam first met the children when they were cooped up in two small upstairs rooms in Pune’s red-light district. Now they have a spacious home in the countryside well away from those who would abuse them. The children are well integrated into the local schools and supported by the villagers from the surrounding community. The most striking thing that any visitor to the home will notice is how happy the children are and how well they relate to one another- a credit to Seema and her team.

Prayer Points:

Please pray for Seema and her staff as they make preparations to start the lunch programme in Pune’s red-light district. This programme will provide a nutritious meal for up to fifty of the many street children of the district.

Thank you,

FTLT Team.

December 2018

As we approach the end of the year, we are pleased to report good progress with the boys’ extension wing.

Trustees of the FTLT will be visiting the Project over the coming months and look forward to seeing the progress for themselves. The highlight of any visit to the community at Bori,of course, is meeting with the children again.

 

                                                                              Building Extension at Bori

Prayer Points:

Please give thanks to the Lord for the over thirty children that Seema’s Project has rescued so far from the streets of Pune. With the new extension and your support we will rescue even more.

Please asked the Lord to guide as we travel through 2019 as we continue to reach out to trafficked sex workers and their children.

Thank you,

FTLT Team.


November 2018

It has been a busy couple of months for our speakers. Our team has travelled the length and breadth of Scotland from Nairn to Newton Stewart. All of our speakers have been encouraged by the warm welcome and the enthusiasm for the work of FTLT. We have met women and men of exceptional commitment to Christ shown through their work with the Guild. It is a privilege for us to be partnering with such a dedicated community; from the smallest to the biggest Guild compassion and love are found in abundance.

Prayer Points:

Please thank God for the many blessings He has showered on Seema’s Project thus far.

Please pray for the children of Bori as they sit their school exams at the end of term.

Thank you.
