Recent Indian government regulations dictate that boys and girls must live in separate buildings. This was announced to Seema and her staff after a government inspection in December 2017. This was a totally unexpected development. Worthy of note however, is that the government inspectors were very impressed with the home at Bori.
This new legislation is affecting all NGO’s in India so, Seema informed the FTLT that she has no option but to comply. The Board of FTLT accepted that the only solution is to build a new facility for the boys.
To achieve this the Trust, in consultation with our partners in India -the Waghmode Foundation, agreed to send capital that was earmarked for the running costs of the home to build the new accommodation.
If you would like to help us with the running costs of the Bori Home, please consider giving a small amount each month by Standing Order .
Co- founder of FTLT ,Avril Duncan, and her team visited Bori last month and were invited to break the ground of the new boys’ home.
The building work is well underway. As well as accommodation for the boys there will be rooms for staff, a sick room and recreation area.
Fundraising continues as we work to complete this new facility.
