Resoconto Serata Gospel

Venerdì 27 Dicembre l’Associazione ha organizzato una serata Gospel presso la chiesa parrocchiale di Villanova Canavese. La serata è stata allietata dai bravissimi Angel’s Dream Choir che, insieme all’ottimo coro della chiesa, hanno proposto un repertorio degno del miglior “Sister Act”. A fine serata, dopo che il coro aveva riscaldato gli animi, gli alpini hanno provveduto a riscaldare il corpo del numeroso pubblico presente, offrendo a tutti cioccolata calda e vin brulè.

Durante la serata sono stati raccolti 616,46€ che l’Associazione devolverà in parte a sostegno delle scuole del Nepal, ed in parte a favore delle scuole di Villanova Canavese.

Si ringraziano tutti i presenti, don Angelo per aver messo a disposizione la parrocchia, il coro Angel’s Dream ed il coro della parrocchia per la magnifica esibizione ed infine gli alpini di Villanova Canavese per il sempre fondamentale aiuto.

Vi aspettiamo numerosi al prossimo evento!

Nepal – Child labour situation

‘ Child labour remains a major economic and social phenomenon in Nepal. According to the National Child Labour Survey undertaken in 1997 ( 1 ), 1.660 million children (26.6 per cent) out of the total 6.225 million children aged between 5 and 14 years in the country are economically active ( 2 ).Among the 1.660 million economically active children, boys (54 per cent) outnumber girls (46 per cent) ( 3 );Many of these children do not go to schools (14.54 per cent of the boys and 25.96 per cent of the girls) ( 4 );The large part (94.7 per cent, 1.576 million) of the economically active children are engaged in the agriculture sector, mostly as unpaid family workers and partly as forced labour attached to their parents under debt bondage or similar other exploitative labour. Besides agriculture, working children are mainly involved in the services sector (27,000) and communications and transportation sector (26,000) ( 5 );Based on several studies conducted under the IPEC Time-Bound Programme (TBP) ( 6 ), it is estimated that there are 127,143 children working in the worst forms of child labour — as bonded labourers, ragpickers, porters, domestic workers, in mines, in the carpet sector, and being trafficked. According to the same studies, the children involved in these forms of child labour start working between the ages of 10 and 14. In addition, more than one-third of them are illiterate, and a majority are school dropouts, who have been brought to their present workplace by their parents or relatives. It also appears that they all come from landless and relatively large families. Finally, more than 80 per cent of children trapped in the worst forms of child labour have migrated for work. With the exception of children bonded into agricultural labour and children working as long distance porters in the rural areas of Nepal, the vast majority of children work in urban areas.’
