The Society for Indian Children's Welfare, also referred to as SICW, was formed in 1979, the International Year of the Child. Although Pathways to Children is not involved with the SICW Orphanage, the Orphanage is a sister facility to Jan Seva school and its many programs, so a visit to the Orphanage is a regular part of a Pathways to Children trip to Kolkata.
After visiting the Umeem program, the equivalent of the Udaan program at Jan Seva (Umeen means hope - Udaan means flight), we went upstairs to visit the babies. Then we moved outside for treats and a concert by the seminarians. It was a warm visit.
