Weekend City Walks

“Girls don’t last long on the streets, they are either picked up by Social Workers or Pimps.” The contrast is stark, yet understandable in a city that has some of the worst female violence cases in India.  It is so fortunate for the girls who end up at a place like SBT.  It is my hope, through this work that enough people can be empowered in the future to help these girls find a better path.

Over the past week or so I have been staying in Nagole, which is a suburb of the South Indian city Hyderabad, where our partner Center for Social Service (CSS) is located...

What amazes me about CSS is how driven the girls are there. In order for a girl to be accepted into CSS, they have three criteria: 1) They must be semi or full orphans 2) They must be economically disadvantaged and 3) They must have a zeal for education and betterment.

I have now been in Bombay for my Commit2Change Field Visit for the past two and half weeks and the experience have been nothing but lovely. I am in no way a stranger to India, having lived here for a total of 3 years in many different areas.
