The genesis of the association


Immaculata is a humanitarian association independent of any religious, political, or state.

In the beginning...

With faithful friends, curious to know what happens to donations locally and willing to take concrete action, and especially to see the results .... we created the "Immaculata association." June 2005

With a decade of experience in a French NGO (Asha association) and helped the advice of my friend Caroline L. (working in a large child sponsorship association in France), I ' was able to give good administrative bases and management to our association. we build strong administrative foundation.

Why Immaculata?

It's a simple story, linked to a fascinating woman that deeply marked my childhood and which reappeared me 20 years later: Sr Immaculata.
The choice of the name "Immaculata" was done so in memory of Sister Immaculata originally international sponsorship within its St Teresa Carmelite congregation in southern India. Sister Immaculata died on July 27 2000.

Our members ...

We are fortunate to benefit from the long experience of our members, who often come from other associations which, by their experiences in humanitarian aid, we enrich their knowledge.
Together, combining our "know how" and our desire to reduce poverty we are open to any serious aid project for disadvantaged children.

Today we are one hundred members, all volunteers.

Our humanitarian action:
Some examples: purchase of mattresses and beds for children, buying a unit to recycle water, buying water tank, roof reconstruction of the orphanage Valparai, installing solar domestic heating ...

Sponsorship of children:
We have favored early individual sponsorships but we soon realized that the sponsoring group of children and a lot more beneficial to children.
With the global economic crisis, between the 2008 and 2010 25% Carmelites have lost their financial capacity to accommodate children in orphanages because their main donors are Indian middle-class and lower classes strongly affected by the crisis. YET THE CHILDREN street coming "tap on their door" are becoming more numerous
