The Tale of Durga and Devamma

The Tale of Durga and Devamma

The Ramanakkapeta Community Centre is the centre for the destitute, orphans, child labourers, widows, youngsters and depressed people, who seek for guidance and support. It is located in a rural village where there are no educational Institutions. Durga and Devamma are 10 and 8 respectively, who are sisters from a schedule tribe and lived with their parents until they borrowed money from their landlord for health reason.  Durga and Devamma were taken as bonded labourers by the landlord.

With the support and participation of Don Bosco, a Rally and Awareness Programme named “Child Labourers’ week” was organised. There were invitees from the Police Department, Child Safety Net, Child Welfare Chief Coordinator.

After all these effort and help from Don Bosco’s fathers,  Durga and Devamma were free from the crutches of the landlords and are now placed safely in the care of Child Safety Net and Holy Family Sisters (organisations to support orphaned children) where they happily live and go to school.
