Universal Children's Day Prayers: Vimukti Pothnal
Heaving Father, please awaken in us a sense of universal responsibility towards children. May we collectively welcome children into our lives, learning from them as we serve them, and may our leaders teach and guide their communities, businesses and countries with the needs of children foremost in their plans; May power be used with gentleness and kindness. Please unite the world community in efforts to give children status and respect. Bless our global efforts to end the violence and cruelty inflicted upon your children; May the world see your likeness and image in every child. Amen.

Art and craft workshop held for our sponsored children: Vimukti Pothnal
There is nothing more satisfying and fulfilling for children than to be able to express themselves openly and without judgment; the ability to be creative, to create something expressing personal feelings and experiences, can reflect and nurture children's emotional health. Creativity fosters mental growth as well by providing opportunities for trying out new ideas, and new ways of thinking and problem-solving. At Vimukti, we provide a creative environment as a complement to the integral education system at the school. Through creative arts we aspire to develop aesthetic sense in our sponsored children and give them a platform where they are able to express themselves freely. Our ultimate objective is to help identify in each child their full potential and bring out their best. Each child is given a chance to develop at his her own pace. With the collaboration of Ensemble Agissons, France Vimukti organized workshop to our sponsored children at Vimukti premises on 21st to 22nd October, 2017.

Since Karnataka is turning out to be a hotspot of human trafficking, reporting the third highest number of cases in the country during 2013-17. Home ministry data says 1,379 human trafficking cases were reported from Karnataka in the five-year period. Human traffickers find a fitting breeding ground in the fast-growing southern metros, luring victims with huge salaries and better lifestyles. A sizeable chunk of trafficking victims, migrant labourers in particular, are often forced into sex work. Recent raids led to the rescue of over 300 bonded labourers in Bangalore. NGO and government officials say this is only the tip of the iceberg. The resource person Mr. Anthony C.
