Fell in love.
Crossed the border from Bangladesh into India.
Into Howrah station in noisy Kolkata.
Up in a lodge.
Just him and her.
Nothing else mattered
When he would force her
Wear these clothes!
Do it now!
Into an abyss of darknesss.
Eyes wide open!
What're they doing!?
The harsh sting of betrayal...
And the bitter....
Oh the bitter taste of pain.
This is the story of a girl we met at the Government Home for Women at Risk.which houses many women just like her.
Some have children,the youngest mother being a 12-year old.
Some were victims of human trafficking,rape,abuse....some have run away from home,and some are mentally challenged.
Come join us this Friday and Saturday from 10am to 1pm for a 2-Day Summer Camp.
U&I,we believe, can truly make a difference.
As Emily Dickenson once wrote-
"If I can stop one Heart from breaking
I shall not live in vain
If I can ease one Life the Aching
Or cool one Pain
Or help one fainting Robin
Unto his Nest again
I shall not live in Vain."
So spread the word,and call +91-9916064516 for more details =)
Here we are again trying to bring colour into their lives. We are one. We need to make them feel like they belong. The happiness in their eyes when someone shows love to them, when someone cares for them, is a source of immense joy to us. We make them enjoy the few moments they have with us. In this period of time, we are doing nothing but trying to understand each other. It’s giving and only giving in this kind of world. There is no distinction between them and us. We're being human.
Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work. – Mother Theresa.
She is the perfect example of a person who gave love without wanting any of it back for herself.
We are, in some sense, doing the same thing.
Still wondering what I am talking about? Well, it’s a NGO called U&I and we’re organizing summer camps for them. Men and women who are mentally challenged, domestically abused and what not. Come join us and support the cause.Justice for all. Join in this Friday and Saturday. Show the love. Also, bring your friends along. Make new friends, have fun.
Venue: Government Home for Boys and Girls, Dairy Circle(Next to NIMHANS)
