Update on IN-860

After somebody asked in the comments the other day, I realized that I never updated you all on Compassion project IN-860.

For those that don't know, back in July, the project my boy Sagar attended, IN-860, which is located in a red-light district in India, was put on probation for three months. The project earned probation because the connecting church wasn't following Compassion's strict financial guidelines. The church/project staff weren't using the money from sponsors in a way that was benefiting children. Sadly, this can happen.

Compassion gave the project three months to, basically, get it's act together. Compassion staff worked very closely with the project over those three months, but unfortunately, the problems could not be resolved and the project closed.

However, this is not the end of the story. Another church in the community, decided that they wanted to partner with Compassion. So, a new project was opened and all of the children that were attending IN-860, were transferred to the next project, IN-868.

So, I will not be losing my sweet boy. I get to keep connected Sagar and his lovely family, as well as the community I've enjoyed learning about.

  1. Thanks for updating us!! I'm so happy for the kids that another church stepped up. This happened in Medellin. Our Valeria's project took in about 200 kids from another project that was closing. I love when churches step up like this! And I'm so happy for you and Sagar!!
