Empowered – Trocaire Lent Campaign 2013


Meet Ambika Paraja and her family. They live in the small village of Jhilligoan in Odisha, India. With your support their community has learned about its rights and gained government support to build a road and a school, and to ensure families have clean drinking water. Trocaire’s 40th anniversary Lent campaign celebrates their empowerment.
