Thank you dear donors,

With your generous support, 7 children who are studying 9th standard and above will be selected for getting education support. Our special thanks to Mr. Sridhar Sundaram who gave a generous donation of $1400 and made it possible. Our thanks giving will not be complete, unless we thank Mr./Ms. Laurie Duker who is continuously supporting us. The funds received are allocated towards the part payment of rent for a year ($200) and the balance to support 7 children to continue their studies. It is decided to select 7 from amongst those who compete, based on the following criteria:

  • The student should be in 9th standard or above. Since the Government has made it mandatory for the schools to promote students upto 8th standard, the drop out rate increases after the 8th standard. To motivate children to continue studies without dropping out even after 8th, this criteria is laid.
  • The student should be in the regular school for the 2nd year. i.e. He/she should have completed atleast one year in regular school after New Life has mainstreamed them.
  • The student must have scored a minimum of 40% marks in the examinations. This is to motivate the sincere and hardworking students.
  • Last but not the least, they are from BPL (Below Poverty Line) category. This is to provide opportunity to the most deprived.

Case studies are being collected and 7 deserving children who were formerly child labourers will be selected for support. It is tentatively fixed to provide the support on November 14th (Children's Day). And our staff are busy on the move.

Keep waiting  for our next report to know who are all selected.

Thank you once again for the noble support.

With love and regards

They are waiting for your support

Dear donors,

Gratitude for the support you have been providing the New Life team continuously.

The prisoners were given trainings on various trades since the beginning. Some of them are: 

The trainings have helped 972 prisoners since 1997, to start small ventures in tailoring, candle making, etc. 

Mr. Anand (name changed) who was trained in automobile mechanism in 2009 by New Life in the Central Prison, is now released and is doing repair works for two wheelers. He says he earns a minimum of Rs. 500/- per day. His family is happy and his sons are now studying 10th and 8th standards. Anand is dreaming of making his sons Engineers. 

Such a bright change is possible only because of the support provided by you dear donors. And we are thankful to you for making this happen and being a cause of the change. And these inmates who have diverted their lives in a positive  direction are much much thankful for you being with them morally.

Now we are waiting for funds to conduct the Kundan Jewellery making training to be conducted in the prison. And this is possible only with your support. Kindly spread words to your friends and relatives who have joy in changing lives. Your words carry more weight.

Thank you

Help them to meet out their education needs

Dear friends,

Suma (name changed) is living in Kaja Pettai and was stitching sacks. She is 13 years old and due to her poor family background, she had to drop out from school while she was in 7th standard. She started supporting her family financially by stitching sacks. Her soft hands had wounds caused by the needle used in stitching sacks.

The teacher of our special school, saw her sitting in front of her home and was perplexed by her tear filled eyes. She went near Suma and inquired what happened. Suma was first hesitant to narrate her story, then she told about her fate and her interest to continue her studies. So the teacher, together with the counselor met Suma's mother and convinced her to send Suma to the special school. Now Suma is in the special school, and she might be admitted to the regular school next academic year.

The salary for the teachers, the lunch expenses and part of the rent of New Life's special schools are now being supported by a funder. And your beloved organisation is now approved by the Government to give free trainings in its premises for people above 14 years. Hence what we require now is support for the balance of the rent ($10 per center per month) and the education expenses (fees, notebooks, learning materials, etc.) to an extent of $180 on an average per child per annum for 25. Hence we need your continued support to educate these children. We will be making the necessary changes in the project soon. 

We thank you for the support you have been providing so far. Kindly support the project by spreading  words too to your friends and relatives. You know them better and your words carry weight. 

With gratitude
