At the beginning of June, we received a visit from a few members of a group we have been sponsoring for a few years, SOPAR.
This organization has several objectives:
* access to drinking water in about 100 villages in India to dig wells and purify water (which contains a lot of fluoride);
* The development of Indian women, especially the poorest and widows, to give them a voice and help them regain more autonomy. These women take care of orphans and elderly people in their village, among others.
* For several years now, an international training centre has been involved with people and groups of other nationalities to share their knowledge and ways of doing things.
As a MFIC community, this is very much in line with our priorities: environmental quality and humanitarian aid for women and children.
