Catalysts for Social Action (CSA) dedicated to the cause of child welfare living in orphanages.
Catalysts for Social Action (CSA) is a national level not for profit Organisation dedicated to the cause of child welfare and rehabilitation for children living in orphanages. We have made a valuable difference to 2800+ children across 55+ Child Care Institutions (Orphanages) in 4 States that is Odisha, Maharastra, Goa & Madhya Pradhesh. In Odisha CSA supports 9 Child Care Institutions (CCI) in 4 districts for 680 Children. Out of these 9 Homes Banabasi Seva Samiti is one of the CCI situated in Baliguda Subdivision of Kandhamal District.250 Children are staying in this CCI. Andrea Thumshirn is the founder of Hockey Village India. The first German league was her greatest and most memorable achievement in Hockey. Since 2010 she is running that social project in rural Rajasthan – India to support rural areas in India and give the children a chance for a better education and therefore for a better future. Besides education they believe in sports, as sports is important for a healthy body, for so many important skills in life like team spirit, motivation, going to their limits and achieving something.They want to develop their own Hockey Village league so that children from all Hockey Villages can compete amongst each other and grow and improve their skills. In October 2011 Andrea moved permanently to India.In 2016 May CSA & Hockey Village India take an initiative to teach the Children of Banabasi seva samiti (BSS) at Baliguda in a 15 Days Summer Camp in a Pilot basis. We got a positive response from the Children & the BSS Management. Children are very much interested to learn hockey & some children learn some techniques very early in that 15 days Hockey Training. In rainy season we did not teach the children. In October BSS prepared their own field for the children.From November onwards Volunteers from Hockey India Village Visits to BSS & teaching the children. Recently we have found a Local Coach from Sundargarh district for BSS.Andrea is specially coming to Odisha for Hockey India league and as Catalyst for Social Action is already associated with Hockey Village India, we are taking 40 Children from BSS (B) to watch Live Hockey Match at kalinga Stadium.
