CCCI Interviews: Sr. Shamindani Fernando, RGS


Catholic Care for Children International is a growing global network of Catholic Sisters who are setting aside institutional approaches to caring for children in favor of family- and community-based care.

CCCI provides a place of collaboration, where network partners share knowledge and support each other as they create and implement effective models of care. CCCI also reaches out to build awareness about the importance of family-centered care and to invite religious institutes with a charism of care to become part of the Catholic Care for Children network.


In the series of interviews, we would like to present some of the CCCI Coordinators, their work and their take on family-centered care.

Meet Sr. Shamindani Fernando, RGS - Coordinator of CCCI Sri Lanka


"When a child is developed and mother is empowered, we are targeting one whole generation.
So upholding rights of the children and empowering women means a lot. It is not just working with one individual, but with a lot of generations. It has a huge impact and really motivated me in my work."
