Questions about the association

Why India? Why precisely these regions?

We work in South India with the Carmelites of St. Teresa. It was chance that one day put on the road to Isabelle Indian Carmelite named Sister Immaculata working in this region.

Why sponsor with a small structure like you rather than large international organizations?

  • We have assets that large organizations usually do not but must adhere to the same ethical rules
  • Our main strengths:
    • our reactivity, being a small structure, the Board of Directors are often in contact by email or telephone.
    • Information flows easily, so we can make decisions quickly over the events.
    • Knowledge of terrain: We work in 4 centers that we know well.
    • Children and their families know us well because we're in India very regularly. We hear from each and we see them grow ...
    • The relationship with our members in Europe is personalized. We even forged friendships with some.
