New Zealand Tertiary College (NZTC) is placing on sale copies of a Cookbook, the proceeds from which will go to ‘Jagriti Children’s Home’ in Delhi.
Chief Executive Selena Fox said ‘Jagriti’ is a safe haven for orphaned and abandoned young girls from the impoverished areas of the Indian Capital.
“Girls are especially vulnerable in a slum environment and are often victims of abuse. ‘Jagriti Children’s Home’ offers hope for the future of these girls by providing a safe, loving family home and access to education,” she said.
It is understood that Maureen Fitzgerald, a member of the College staff suggested sale of the Cookbook titled, Recipes of Hope containing a range of recipes collected from staff, students and friends.
It will be retailed at $20, of which $15 will go to ‘Jagriti.’
NZTC established a formal relationship with the home while setting up a campus in India. The college provides qualifications in Early Childhood Education.
Ms Fox said she visits ‘Jagriti’ while in India.
“We are privileged to be able to support a charity which is aligned with our College mission of caring for and educating young children.”
