Message from Dharavi

Today we received an e-mail from Nawneet Ranjan in Dharavi, Mumbai thanking us for our financial contribution to the Slum Innovation project. This is what he wrote:

Thank you so much for your contribution to support the tech Girls for Change from Dharavi. I want you to know that your contribution has an incredible impact on the girls, their lives and the community of Dharavi, Nayanagar, Mahim, Mumbai.


We got Lumkani networked fire sensor to make the community safer, laptops, clothes, books, food items, a little bigger space rental to learn etc. for the girls and their families.


Girls are learning each day to get better in their studies and make their community safer, vibrant and peaceful.



Here are the girls who are going to school because of your contribution.

Visit to Brussels

On Friday the boys had a chat with a few classes from the Klein Seminarie. They talked freely about topics that relate to their lives as youngsters in India and Belgium.

Onze inleefreis in een paar foto’s

Een hartelijk dank je wel aan alle inleefreizigers voor de fijne inleefreis die we achter de rug hebben in India en de Lievensmissie. We kunnen terugkijken op een rijke variatie van warme ontmoetingen, nieuwe ervaringen en nooit meer te vergeten indrukken van een land vol extremen. Het zal nog heel wat tijd vragen om alle indrukken te verwerken, maar een impact zal deze reis alleszins hebben. Thanks again! Iedereen kan op deze bladzijde de reis van begin tot einde opnieuw lezen. Een korte fotoreportage vindt u hieronder.
