Hi donors, this is Danushkumar

Danushkumar studying in the special school

Dear Donors,


"I am 12 years old and was found in the streets of Thideer Nagar picking up the waste paper by our special school teacher. My father is a drunkard and my parents fight often and my mother goes to my grandma’s house at least once in three months. She took me with her not worrying about my studies. Hence I had to drop out from school and I became a rag picker" says Danushkumar, our special school student in Thideer Nagar.

The special school teacher of New Life on seeing this child, talked to his parents. The counsellor counselled the boy to attend the special school where the child labourers are rehabilitated. After repeated counselling the boy joined our special school.

When he joined he could not read or write properly. Now he can read and write. He is also performing well in drawing and games.

Deprived children like Danush can get their rights restored through your support. Kindly spread words about our work to your friends and relatives to help the children like Danush.

With regards

F. Beatrice Vanaja

Tailoring Training started

Dear Donors,

You would be happy to know that the tailoring training for the inmates of the Special Prison for Women in Trichirappalli is started on the 11th of January 2013. Thanks to you dear donors who made it possible and supported this task of training the women.

The women who are attending the training will be trained in the basics of stiching, and will have an extensive training in cutting and stiching the blouses. Since the blouse is the dress item mostly worn by the women in Tamil Nadu, blouse stiching will fetch them a good income once they get out of the prison and start their small unit. A minimum of Rs.5000/- (100$) is enough to buy a good sewing machine. And by stiching a blouse one can get an income of $1 to 2 depending on the model of the blouse. The trainees are so excited to get trained in this income generating opportunity.

One of the trainee is imprisoned by the complaint of her sister in law under the domestic violence prevention act. The crime she committed was scolding her sister in law during an argument. She says that once she goes out of the prison, she will buy a machine and start stiching blouses of her neighbours. And I will regain my dignity she says.

Thank you dear donors for supporting these women. Kindly spread words about the work of New Life to your friends and relatives and help us help such women who are inside the prison for emotional outbursts.   

With regards
