India, a boarding school for children and girls of Laripani

The project involves the construction of a boarding school for small children and girls from poor and often illiterate families, to give them access to school, study and training. It is important to help them to overcome the distance between their home and school, a barrier that often becomes insurmountable for the poorest of the poor and for girls in particular. This is the project the Canossian Foundation is working on in Laripani which is a village located in the Raigarh district, Chattisgarh State, in the heart of India.

Laripani

Laripani is a small rural village whose population is only a few hundred people distributed in about 164 huts, 90% of whom belong to local tribes. About 40 % of them are Christians.
The precarious economic conditions, which affect many families, especially those who live in the many villages of the area, are the lowest on the scale of literacy, especially women. Another problem, common in rural areas, is the distance that children and girls have to walk to school every day. This is, in fact, an obstacle to their education. The risk of abuse and violence, the result of ignorance, an archaic mentality and contempt for the female gender, is also significant.

The Boarding School

The structure to be built, will be able to accommodate up to 200 children and girls who, year after year, will eventually increase in numbers in the long run: they will be the women of tomorrow!
In recent years, the Canossian Foundation has carried out numerous projects in India and always in collaboration with local partners from the Canossian missionary world, as in this project. The experience gained and the relationships established are precious elements to guarantee a new experience of success.
