Happy New Year from the Ann Foundation!

We at the Ann Foundation would like to thank all our wonderful donors for their tremendous support during 2010! We hope that you please take a look at the pictures to see just ONE of the many ways you have helped us this year. Because of your kind generosity, we were able to procure uniforms and shoes for the children at our Vellore school, allowing the children to continue their education in safety and comfort, a rarity for handicapped children in this part of the world.

As the New Year begins, many of us begin to make resolutions, and some of us think of ways we can give back more to others this year. If this was a resolution of yours, we would love for you to please consider teaming up with the Ann Foundation  in 2011 as we continue to expand our classes and begin new projects in Vellore (as well as around the world). There are many children who can use your help! So please continue with your generous donations, and never hesitate to contact us. We are always in need of bright and caring individuals who can volunteer with us. Or perhaps you may have some suggestions. How do you think we can reach more children in 2011?

Again, thanks for your support and lets continue to work together!!

School is in Session, Supplies needed!

Thanks to donors like yourself along with our dedicated volunteers, classes have begun for our students. Over one hundred disabled students have joined us in Tamil language classes (a local dialect, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tamil_language) taught by our gifted teachers. Our volunteers have spent much time and effort over the last several months designing and developing a curriculum that could be adopted by our international tutors, and we look forward to reaping the rewards of our efforts! The students have been divided into small classes to maximize learning, and our volunteers have been working around the clock preparing new lessons and tending to the youth.

While the classes have been running smoothly, and the enthusiasm of our students is growing, we have noted some additional needs. Currently, we have plans for a fully operational computer center, so that our students can become computer literate. More immediate, though, is the need for comfortable and clean new uniforms and shoes for the students. An education should not be hindered by something as simple as footwear, so the Ann Foundation plans to provide the students with new shoes and clothing. You can help us in this effort by contributing even a small sum. Just $20 is enough to purchase four pairs of new school shoes, and $35 can purchase two sets of uniforms. Please help these children succeed in their education!

Forging Ahead

As part of an ongoing effort by the Ann Foundation to improve efficiencies, we have moved our project to Vellore, a city in Southern India, where space is available to continue our work. This move will allow us to reduce costs, better allocate donations, and reach a greater number of disabled children in need. We have recently sent a trusted volunteer to the field to set up the infrastructure. She will soon send us the pictures from the field, which will be uploaded on the site. We hope that you will check back in to view the photos from this exciting new project. We at The Ann Foundation are thrilled to have the opportunity to build yet another successful school where English and technology courses can empower and educate young people, giving them new chances for their futures.
