INDIA CHHATTISGARH

Construction of a boarding school for underprivileged children from the region

The Holy Family of Bordeaux has been present in BODA since 2014, working in education and social welfare.

BODA is a village of around 400 families, located not far from Ambikapur.

Every day, to get to school, the children must walk for 7 to 10 km in conditions that are very difficult, especially for the little girls. It is a poor agricultural region, where employment is sporadic and seasonal, because of the monsoon.

The HFB works on behalf of the children to prevent illiteracy, ill-treatment and gender inequality
