Mother’s Day Celebration High Tea Fundraiser 13th May 2017

Saturday 13th May: High Tea & Fundraiser

Bookings are now open for CINI Australia’s 4th Annual Mother’s Day Celebration

Make it a Very Happy Mother’s Day. This is an opportunity to help young mothers in India provide their children with many of the things we take for granted: health care, good nutrition, schooling and safety. CINI’s programs start at conception, continue through childhood into adolescents, the parents of the next generation.

CINI (India) Recognised For “CINI Method”

HCL Technologies, one of India’s top IT companies, awards  HCL Grants in Health, Environment and Education.

It is a CSR commitment by HCL through the HCL Foundation,  contributing to rural development by strengthening NGOs.

CINI was awarded the grant in the Health category. It is in recognition of the experimental work carried out by CINI over the past decades in involving poor communities in participatory governance processes hinging on the convergence  in the areas of health, nutrition, education and protection. The CINI Method relies on the joint involvement of government service providers, Panchayati Raj Institutions ( Local government), and women and children’s groups.   The grant will help improve health and nutrition outcomes for children, adolescents and women in the districts of Jalpaiguri, South 24 Parganas and Murshidabad in West Bengal through building Child Friendly Communities, applying the CINI Method.

Mindfulness Bushwalk For CINI Australia 8th & 9th October

The Shenton park Meditation group are holding  a mindfulness walking meditation on part of the Bibbulmen Track in the Perth hills.  They aim to raise $2000 for our new Chainagar Child Friendly Community Program
Information or booking: email Gaby Yin –


Since we began the meditation classes at Yoga Moves in 2009, we have been regularly supporting CINI and their work in educating children and young mothers that they may break free from the cycle of poverty, malnutrition an
d ill health that many are caught in.

Each of us ascribes our own meaning to the things we choose to do. We walk in many ways, for many reasons – to get somewhere, to keep fit, to give thanks, to demonstrate our support for others, to restore or challenge ourselves. We can walk and talk with our companions and we can walk in silence. We can go on a pilgrimage. We can even walk ‘wishlessly’ as Thich Nhat Hanh describes the practice of mindful walking meditation. Over time, maybe we can do all these things…

Cycle for Change 2015 Tasmania

Woohoo we did it! With Cycle For Change 2015 now completed, we have topped $30,000 with our fund raising. These funds will reach families in West Bengal, in their health, nutrition, education, their knowledge of their rights and skills in protecting their children and in gaining a voice to determine their futures.

We are absolutely thrilled and deeply grateful to the 9 riders from 3 states for the effort they put into making this a success. Despite the many hills, all our riders, including Karina, Camille, Neil, Karen, Josh, Peter, Steph, Magan and Jennie with support from Paula, Beau, Anne, Elizabeth, Tasmanian Camping Tours: Scott and Maggie completed the 460km ride through eastern Tasmania from Launceston to Hobart.

Thank you to the friends, family and sponsors from around the globe for your support.

Great logistical support by Tasmanian Camping Tours and Discovery Learning made the cycle safe and enjoyable for all. We particularly enjoyed two opportunities to host public talks about CINI in Scotsdale and Artifakt Restaurant in Swansea.

A daily blog of the ride can viewed here.
