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.
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.
