Latest news about Pope Francis

From homeless to meeting the Pope – a story of inspiration

Vatican City, Sep 27, 2016 / 04:33 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Tanya Cangelosi never imagined that she would one day be bringing homeless people on pilgrimages to Rome. And Shyla Montoya never thought that she would someday go on a pilgrimage to Rome. But earlier this month, that is exactly what they did. And what’s more, the pair was even able to meet Pope Francis. On Sept. 7, in St. Peter's Square, Pope Francis stopped to speak with the two women after giving his usual Wednesday General Audience. Cangelosi, who started her own homeless ministry in Denver, handed him a collage she had made with photos of “our homeless kids,” as she calls them. Pope Francis held the photo: “he didn't just hand it off, he really looked at it,” Cangelosi said. Montoya is the third person from the homeless community selected to go on pilgrimage to Rome through Denver Homeless Ministries (DHM). The first was Clarissa “Glitterbear” Salazar in 2014 and the secon (...)

Source: Morung ExpressNew Delhi, July 23 (IANS) Kailash Satyarthi has been a campaigner for child rights nationally and internationally for three decades. His Bachpan Bachao Andolan has had particular focus on freeing children who are forced into exploitative labour or servitude.

While top awards have crowned his efforts, they have not capped them. His campaign against child labour continues. He is currently working to launch a campaign called ‘Hundred Million for Hundred Million’ which is aimed at the youth across the world. Satyarthi spoke with IANS about his life and work. His message to the ordinary folk is: Just break the silence over child labour. IANS: In addition to your long-term campaign against child servitude, what have you been doing nowadays? Satyarthi: Currently I am preoccupied with getting amendments (...)

We do not see the end of child labour in the near future with this law: Kailash Satyarthi

Author: Yogesh RajputSource: Governance NowThe Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Amendment Bill, 2012 has been passed by the Lok Sabha and is expected to be notified soon. Child rights activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi spoke to Yogesh Rajput on how effective the new bill would be and what more is needed to protect children.  How do you assess this new law, expected to arrive soon, in preventing child labour? Well, I have a mixed opinion about it. To give you a background, we have been strongly fighting for children’s rights since 1986 when the first-ever law on child labour was enacted. Even before that, very few NGOs and individuals used to work for the cause. In fact, between 1981 and 1985, Bachpan Bachao Andolan and I had to struggle a lot to get in place an Indian law on child labour. And when it did come, it was quite weak and its enforcement weaker. The point is that children had never been a priority for politicians. And thus, three gen (...)
