Community Campus Take Key Skills To India


Not content with renovating empty properties in Stockton and Middlesborough, a group of people from Community Campus have just returned from a working trip to India, where they oversaw the building of a meeting room for a small rural community.

Carl Ditchburn, Community Campus’s Director, led the party and recounts how: “The India project emerged after we bumped into a development worker at a conference in Liverpool.  Sam Chelladuria worked with the READ centre in Bangalore and we hit upon the idea of taking our keyskills model of construction training to India  to work with local builders and help achieve the READ centre’s aims.  The initial project in 2007  involved building  two classrooms at a school for slum dwellers, while this time we went over to build  a meeting room for a rural community north of Bangalore, again working with local labour as a personal development project.  Meantime, Community Campus is engaged in developing a longer term relationship with the READ centre in order  to sustain the activities it has developed to date.”
