Palna - the Most Vulnerable People

This is an interview about a wonderful organization in India -  Delhi Council for Child Welfare (DCCW) or Palna, as it's called by friends.

I was lucky to record the interview when Radhika Minocha, an Honorary Executive Committee Member of the DCCW, was traveling through Washington DC. Some years ago Radhika was a member of the World Bank Family Network and that's how we originally met. Watch till the end and you'll learn what helped Radhika to change her career. 

I hope the stories in the interview will touch your heart and you consider to contribute to the organization by sharing the interview with your friends, donating some funds or, may be, even volunteering. 

For over six decades, DCCW has been aspiring to live up to its mission to “give children a childhood”. DCCW provides programs in the areas of health, nutrition, education and rehabilitation of physically and mentally challenged children. DCCW (PALNA) runs a Educational Sponsorship Program to support children from financially weaker sections of society, to help them complete their schooling.
See for yourself! 

Thank you for watching!  Each year DCCW supports about 1000 underprivileged children. We invite you to sponsor a child in need. Donations to Delhi Council for Child Welfare are exempt from Tax under Section 35 AC of I.T. Act 1961

Children without families are the most vulnerable people in the world.

What Fear Does to You

I am excited to share with you the interview with James Hollis.

What are the typical ways in which we manage our fears, and how, over the years, do they take over our lives, and become who we think we are, rather than adaptive mechanisms?

James Hollis, Ph. D. is a Zurich-trained Jungian analyst in practice in Washington, D. C. where he is also Executive Director of the Jung Society of Washington. He is also author of fourteen books translated into nineteen languages. 

I've recorded this video for the Jung Society of Washington and sharing it here with the Society's permission.
