”From what I have seen of the work of CSSG, it is making a material difference to the lives of young underprivileged men and women in India, one individual at a time. I was lucky enough to be able to meet one of the recipients of CSSG’s assistance. The young man has been given the opportunity and support to be able to drastically change the course of his life, from one destined for poverty and a fight to survive on the streets, to starting on the road to a career in the hospitality industry. With this first step, he is now able to benefit from all of the opportunities that employment inherently brings – income, security, education and training, resulting in increased confidence and sense of self-worth, and a vision for his own successful future. This success story is just one among many to date, and we can only hope that the progress that CSSG is making will continue in such a positive direction.”

“We are pleased to support CSSG in its effort to secure a career for homeless young adults in our care. CSSG provides invaluable support at a highly crucial juncture of the lives of street children as they grow into adults in need of self-sustaining livelihood options. The work CSSG is doing is absolutely crucial to help ensure that the youth we work with continue to take steps forward towards a self-sustaining future as they become adults. CSSG provides the young adults in our care a hope for the future and a life filled with dignity, respect, and purpose.

“Flow India is excited to be CSSG’s implementation partner. Our collaboration has begun by conceptualizing, designing and delivering workshops for the two-part ‘And Still I Rise’ exhibition outreach where we have run thought-provoking, engaging sessions on gender-sensitisation. These have culminated in a creative writing output, which will be collated into a book and be showcased at an international art exhibition at Institut Cervantes in March 2015.  We are looking forward to a long and sustained partnership with CSSG as we are completely in line with the values that they are working towards; supporting and empowering children and young people to succeed, using creative industries to support themselves.”
