IMET2000has for five years provided limited support for a programme in West Bengal run by a close friend and colleague Olivia Donnelly as CEO of Shivia (www.shivia.com). This is enabling extremely poor and abused women to achieve a measure of financial independence and mental and physical health.
IMET2000is now forming a new partnership with the Tibet Relief Fund (http://www.tibetrelieffund.co.uk) to provide child mental health training to nurses, psychologists, social workers and school teachers working in a children’s community badged as Tibetan Ability in Dharamsala in North India. Our IMET2000 Trustee, Dr Hasanen Al Taiar, responsible for our mental health programmes worldwide enjoyed an extremely productive meeting with the CEO of TRF , Philippa Carrick and Colin Green on the 8th May. We agreed plans starting with a visit of Hasanen to Dharamsala in July to assess needs and produce a feasibility study.
