The home is colour washed.

Dear Donors,

During the vacation, i.e. in the month of May, the old building of the home was colour washed. Colours that are vibrant are chosen and the work is completed spending $520. This has to be done as the old building was very dull and not neat. You can see the newly coloured hall in the photo attached. Since the amount reserved for cots had to be diverted for this, we could not buy the cots as per plan. The balance $480 is used to repay the loans. As you already know, we have borrowed loans for construction and it needs to be settled to the tune of $20520 ($3480 settled with your donations). 

We are requesting you to kindly support us in raising the required funds for this project by spreading words to your friends and relatives. Thank you for your moral and financial support.

With regards

Help these children have moral support

Dear Donors,

Thank you for the continued support given by you to these poor children have coaching for their studies.

Abdul (name changed) was picking up rags all through the day for a wage of Rs.10/- and was happy with that. He was spotted by the New Life team and was admitted to the special school for child labourers run by New Life. After two years he was admitted to regular school and also in the coaching class run for children like Abdul who needs coaching which their family could not give. Now he is in 7th standard, confident of getting good scores and of a good future.

Children who are poor, deprived, who had been child labourers and now going to regular schools are being supported by the supplementary education (coaching) classes run by New Life. These children will otherwise find it difficult to study or do their homeworks as their parents (who are illiterates or less literates) after their long hours of hard work cant coach them. But for these evening classes, they will be wandering or playing in the streets.

We thank you dear donors, who have contributed in conducting these classes. We also request you to spread words to your friends and relatives, and help us continue this project and benefit more and more children.

With gratitude,

F. Beatrice Vanaja

"Hurray! We are back to school and in the next class"

"Hurray! We are back to school and in the next class" happily shouts the children in Poonjolai, our home. After a month's vacation, the children are back to school in the month of June. They are so happy to be with their friends in the school and home, though occassionally we can find the pinch of sadness in face as they had to come away from their near and dear ones.

We, at New Life are much pressurised this year as Sathya should write her High school final exams. She is to be coached specially as she finds it a little difficult to study Maths and English. She is spending additional hours studying besides attending the Communicative English class. The others are as playful as they are.  

A donor gave a mixie as donation to the home. We are trying to rope in volunteers to come during the weekends to spend time with the children. The children are given healthy nutritious meal and since this is the beginning of the academic year, we are mobilising donations for their educational needs.

The home is functioning with the generous support from people like you and we are grateful from making this possible. Kindly spread words to your friends and relatives as we are only providing the minimum basic needs to the children due to paucity of funds. If we can mobilise more funds, we will be in a better position to provide them with extra skills coaching.

Thanking you

F. Beatrice Vanaja
