Helping the Children of Calcutta

The work being done by the Mohammed Khalil Ullah in the slums of Calcutta is really inspiring. There is a story on this on the Scientology Volunteer Ministers web site.

Here's an excerpt from the story:

"For several years Mr. Ullah has been running projects in the slums, including providing schooling and health care for the children, vocational training for women so they can learn the skills they need to get jobs, and rescuing children who have been the victims of sexual trafficking, providing them a place to live, food and education.

"Learning about Mr. Hubbard's technology when he attended a seminar presented by the Scientology Volunteer Goodwill Tour at the Calcutta Book Fair in January, Mr. Ullah thought Mr. Hubbard's methods could help him accomplish his mission.

"He trained on the Disaster Response Course and several other Volunteer Ministers courses, provided by the Goodwill Tour. Inspired by what he learned he decided to implement this on a broad scale; he opened a school in the Calcutta slums, where he incorporated the techniques of study technology into the curriculum and plans to open dozens more."

It's wonderful to hear how he is putting the technology from the Scientology Handbook to use to solve such an important problem.
