Following some delays, the building was completed and handed over in February 2013. On 27th July, 2013, our new premises were formally opened by Chief Minister of Goa, Manohar Parrikar, and Commissioner for Non-resident Indians, Dr. Wifred Mesquita. Others community leaders included Principal of St. Ann’s High School, Sr. Joysee, Deputy Sharpanch (Mayor) and member for Cantorlim, Sharon D’Souza and Panchayat (Council) member, Mahesh Dondh together with over 70 adults from in and around the village of Tivim.
As on 31st December 2014, 57 children benefit from the GVC Learning Program. In a society riddled with abuse, safety and security of our children is paramount and in 2013/14, two safety and security projects were implemented. The first was the construction of a boundary fence with locked gates and the purchase of a school van to pick and drop off children living long distances from the Centre to and from school. Both projects were funded by the generosity of Francis D’Mello and Peter Vanderzaag of 3Fold Resources in Victoria.
