Human Life Development & Research Centre (HLDRC) is a social centre run and managed by the Jesuit Fathers of the Province of Darjeeling in West Bengal. They belong to an international Catholic religious order called Society of Jesus.
An ongoing plan to reach out to most vulnerable households of the tea gardens/villages by Catholic Diocese of Bagdogra Food & Health Relief Team and in collaboration with other networks in the region. We reached 6422 households in around 66 locations/tea gardens/villages.
The large numbers of listed poor persons at household wise are going through critical times for not having government ration card during lockdown period as they are Bigha workers in tea gardens or daily wage workers and dependant workers. The food security safety net was not ensured for these groups who are facing a huge crisis for food and cash during lockdown period. They need government ration card as earliest in order to protect themselves from hunger and starvation.
To make the intervention more impactful. We can also pay more attention towards helping them filling the food relief coupon to have access to ration and other relief measures of state and centre government.
To create awareness on Health safety & Government welfare schemes under “Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojna” a central government welfare schemes during and after lockdown period economic packages in reaching to the people in Siliguri sub-Division and in Dooars.
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.
