Report presentation on HLDRC evaluation
On 21 Sept, 2018 about 25 people belonging to HLDRC administration, staff, volunteers and some beneficiaries gathered at HLDRC to hear the report of the HLDRC evaluation that was conducted on completion of 5 years of its existence. Director Fr Lalit began the proceedings with a prayer followed by welcoming all and thanking all for taking part in the exercise of evaluation. After that he presented the findings in PPT forms and ended by summarising the salient points emerging from the evaluation. Then the house was open for clarification and comments which some gave emphasising that HLDRC has indeed reached out to most deserving tea plantation community and has impacted much. Fr John TIgga, who is also the superior of dispersed community including HLDRC praised the centre for its excellent work while extorting all to continue the good work. Fr Pascal ended the session by thanking one and all. After that all went out for a group photograph. But before entering the dining hall Fr John blessed the portrait of Fr. Arturo Sosa SJ the superior general of the Jesuits and placed it at the entrance. Finally, everyone enjoyed the sumtuous meal.
Become a part of our family. Together, we
can stop hunger and change many lives.
HLDRC is indeed an organization with a difference because it is working for the empowerment of the
marginalized and vulnerable sections of the society to bring about transformation.
All the strategies that HLDRC has in place and the ways it accommodates itself to reach out to beneficiaries
and facilitates their involvements is clearly contributing to the success of its programs
HLDRC and Jesuits are doing a great work to transform the lives of tea plantation community and I am sure
in the coming years the new generation will see significant socio-economic changes in their community.
