Caritas India, founded in 1962, is the official development arm of the Catholic Church in India. With her foundations on Gospel values, especially the love commandment, Caritas India endeavors to be a sign of God's love for the underprivileged and the marginalized. Caritas India is a member of Caritas Internationalis, a confederation of 168 Catholic relief and development organizations working in nearly 200 countries. This makes Caritas the second largest NGO network in the world.
Caritas India is a voluntary organisation registered under the Societies Registration Act XXI 1860 (the punjab amendment act 1957). Driven by the commitment to uphold the dignity and sacredness of human person, Caritas India has been working for the emancipation of the underprivileged and the marginalized irrespective of their caste, creed, ethnicity and religion. In the last fifty years Caritas India had reached out to millions of poor and helped them overcome poverty and deprivation. What makes Caritas India a unique organisation is her presence across the country and the large spectrum of development interventions for which Caritas India mobilizes and invests funds.
Though Caritas India had started its work in disaster relief response, her operations have now been diversified for meeting the plaguing needs of a sizeable population of the country that continues to languish in chronic poverty and backwardness. The present intervention portfolio of Caritas India consists of livelihood, natural resource management, sustainable agriculture, good governance, anti-trafficking of women and children, peace-building and health care with focus on HIV/AIDS, Malaria, TB and other communicable diseases.
In the past five decades, Caritas India has contributed significantly to nation building by supporting 22945 projects to tune of Rs. 13,730 million. However, the strategic role of Caritas India has not just been giving funding support, but she has been helping hundreds of development organisations increase their capacities for achieving greater levels of effectiveness.
As a front-running organisation in the sector of relief response, rehabilitation and disaster preparedness, Caritas India has rendered her services whenever disasters struck the country. From the Bangladesh refugee crisis in 1971 to Uttarakhand floods in 2013, Caritas India has been working tirelessly to reach relief to the people hit by disasters. Some of the calamities during which Caritas India launched large-scale relief response are Latur earthquake in 1993, Hurricane in Andhra Pradesh in 1996, Orissa super cycle in 1999, Gujarat earthquake in 2001, Tsunami in 2004, Jammu Kashmir earthquake in 2005, Kandhamal communal riots in 2008 and the cyclone Alia in 2009. Caritas India has so far built over 25000 houses for calamity-struck families, including 13410 houses that were constructed with an investment of Rs. 5,000 million under Tsunami rehabilitation programme.

For Caritas India the work is not over yet. While exercising preferential option for the poor, especially the Dalits, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, she will strive harder for the establishment of a social order that is based on Gospel values.

Caritas India : The Joy of Service

MUMBAI -- Following is the speech that Caritas India Chairman Bishop Peter Remegius delivered during the Fifth National Assembly of Caritas in Mumbai on February 6.
...
Members of various bodies of Caritas and Directors and staff of Caritas India
On behalf of the Catholic Bishops’ conference and as Chairman of Caritas India, I warmly welcome each one of you to the fifth National Assembly of the Diocesan Directors of Social work of the Catholic Church in India!
I recall with immense joy the first such assembly Caritas India organized as part of the Silver Jubilee Celebration of Caritas India in 1987, when I happen to be the Director of Caritas India. The number of Diocesan Social Service Societies has increased in the last 20 years. Today we have 159 social service societies engaged themselves in social ministry of the church which is an indispensable expression of Her very being.
Pope the Benedict XVI in his first encyclical DEUS CARITAS EST (GOD IS LOVE) says, “LOVE â€" Caritas will always prove necessary even in the most just Societyâ€. Today in a society like ours, the need for Caritas and manifestation of Caritas in its true sprit is not necessary to be over emphasized. As the Holy father mentions in his encyclical,†the Church beginning with those of Caritas (at diocesesan, national and international level) ought to do everything in their power to provide the resources and above all the personnel needed for this work.
With this back ground at this fifth national assembly, I wish to share with you as well as reinforce some of my thoughts.
Caritas is a movement and an expression of Church for addressing the social concerns. All of us are part of Caritas at different levels. I would like to reiterate this and efforts needed to be made at every level to emphasize that all of us are part of Caritas. One of the main objectives of national assembly is also towards this.
Secondly, Caritas India as a national organization was set-up by the Bishops’ conference to facilitate the diocesan organisations. In this regard, Caritas India continuously searches ways and means to be relevant to the diocesan organisations. The organizational development process which involved surveys, consultations and workshops at regional levels enabled Caritas India to sharpen its mission, goals and strategies. The outcome and the way forward will be shared with you for your affirmation.
In this process, Caritas India is also coming out with new programmatic approaches like IDEA (integrated Development for Empowerment and Action). This has begun with series of consultations. Besides during this year Caritas also initiated CEP â€" Capacity enhancement programme â€" a programme aimed at building the capacities of the social service societies in a concerted way. I do hope that both these programmes with sustained accompaniment will yield desired results.
Beside Caritas India has also developed its gender policy and disaster response policies, which will be guiding our interventions. I would strongly emphasize the need for such policies at regional and diocesan level, and Caritas India would provide all possible assistance in that direction.
...
Today we as members of Caritas have a duty to ensure that people have a right to demand the Government to ensure equitable social change and distributive justice.

1. Inspired by the Holy Spirit and keenly aware of the responsibility placed on us to shepherd the flock of Christ, we, 157 Catholic Bishops of India, met for the 29th General Body Meeting of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of India (CBCI) at Don Bosco Institute, Guwahati from 24 February to 3 March 2010, to reflect on and pray over the theme 'Youth for Peace and Harmony'. Providentially, it happened to be the Silver Jubilee of the International Year of Youth (1985-2010). Attending the Meeting were also the CBCI Commission Secretaries and Directors of National Centres, some office bearers of the Conference of Religious of India and the Catholic Council of India along with the National Director of the Indian Catholic Youth Movement (ICYM) and 51 youth delegates from the 13 regions of the country.
2. The relevance of the theme of our Meeting is evident from the fact that while the country is marching forward rapidly, it is simultaneously experiencing discord, disharmony and violence on several fronts. The Church has always stood for the unity and integrity of the country as a Sovereign Democratic Republic and has been against violence even for the attainment of legitimate goals. The face of India today is 'young' - the population trends point towards the average Indian being less than 30 years of age by 2020.
...
5. We are concerned about the migration of young people from rural areas to towns and cities in India and abroad.

In the light of our reflection on the Word of God, the teachings of the Church, the voice of young people and the deliberations of the Catholic Council of India held on Jan. 9 - 12, 2010, we, the Bishops of India, are committed:

His political acumen was put to good use at several critical times of India's political history. His political advice was sought not only by his admirers but by his opponents as well. His departure from this universe has created a great vacuum in the Indian politics which will be hard to fill.
