2010-10_india_best (3).JPG In the last time we were busy to visit rural schools and schools in the slums in the Bangalore area. Thanks to swissnex India based in Bangalore we made a change in their daily life. Swissnex organised also some interviews. Read the article here.
2010-10_india_best (5).JPG The Government Children’s Home was a place we never have seen before! This prison for kids has no toilet!! We will try our best to get Geberit involved to supply with toilets. Luckily there is a local NGO, Peace Child India. They try to find the parents of these poor kids, who normally got kidnapped by kids dealers in Northern India and Nepal and send to Southern India to “work”. When they can escape they are on the streets in the big cities where they get cached by the police and send to prison.
