Each year we take a new photo of every child and aging friend sponsored through CFCA ñ more than 300,000 photos. This helps sponsors stay in touch with their friend and keeps our records updated.
Our Bhagalpur project in India serves about 7,400 sponsored children and elderly, many of them living in remote villages. Joachim Hansdak, a CFCA staffer there, recently traveled to take more than 3,000 pictures of sponsored friends. Let’s follow him on his journey!
A month before he travels, Joachim prepares a trip schedule in collaboration with the CFCA project coordinator.
His schedule ranges from 15 days to one month, traveling from one CFCA community to another without coming back to Bhagalpur to save time.
After the trip schedule is finalized, CFCA social workers plan to conduct photo sessions in their respective areas.
(Usually social workers communicate CFCA activities such as the annual photo sessions and letter-writing camps to mothers of sponsored children in their monthly support group meetings.) Read more
