Fr. Joby Kaithakalam VC, the present consultant and former director of Bhimadole Development Society visited our collaborator Side By Side India and its members in Belgium in December 2019. Bhimadole Development Society has been collaborating with Side By Side India for almost six years in the implementation of Multi Village Development Project in the rural villages of Eluru. Fr. Joby's visit to Belgium was a multipurpose one, as he did his internship as part of his Masters in Social Work along with his stay and visit in Belgium.

During his visit Fr. Joby attended a fund raising dinner arranged by Side By Side India and he presented a short documentary on the various activities of Bhimadole Development Society. In the same event he could meet the sponsors and thank them on behalf of BDS and VSS. He attended a board meeting of Side By Side India and presented the statistics of the activities being carried out by Bhimadole Development Society.

Bhimadole Development Society gratefully remembers Mr. Prakash Goossens, the president of SBS-I, Ms. Marianne Eelen, the secretary, all the board members of SBS-I, Bro. Jose and all the Brothers of Charity for making Fr. Joby's stay and visit a pleasant and fruitful one. We hope that the visit of Fr. Joby will boost and energize the activities of BDS with new insights and vision and further our collaboration with SBS-I to new levels.
