Uma Maheswari in the special school

Uma Maheswari is from Thideernagar, Ariyamangalam zone in Trichy district. Her father’s name is Mr. Ramaswamy and mother is Mrs. Vijayalakshmi. She has one eldest brother, one elder sister and two younger brothers. Uma Maheswari and her family was living in Kumbakonam. Her father died due to alcoholism. After her father’s death her family came to Trichy. After they settled in Trichy, all the 5 children in the family were not going to school. Her mother is having illegal affair with Mr.Mohan and she least cared about the children. Uma’s eldest brother Rajesh is 15 year old and he is a construction worker. Having developed hatred for his mother he never comes home. The other three children Rajeswari - 11years old, Uma Maheswari – 8 years old and Chinnu Mani – 7 years old collected waste paper and earned money. The youngest brother Elumalai is 4 years old and he went with his sisters and brother while going to collect waste paper. Vijayalakshmi is a construction worker and she spent all the money she has for Mohan and not even a penny is spent for the children. New life’s staff came to know about them and gave continuous counseling to Vijayalakshmi. Now the children are admitted in our Child labour special school in Ariyamagalam. The youngest one is admitted to our early learning center. Our special school teacher Mrs. Selvi says that the children are happy only in the school. Now the three children are getting good meal with education and they are happily playing with other children.

Such happiness is made possible only through the support of donors like you. Kindly support the program by spreading words to your friends and relatives. The donations given on March 14th, 2012 will be matched by globalgiving up to 30% and your beloved organisation has a chance to get the grant up to $1000.

Thank you once again for the support.

Spread Words

The hall under construction
The hall under construction

Dear Donors,

Thank you for supporting our project to build a home for the children. So far we can mobilize $660 out of the estimated $44340. With this amount and the local donations mobilized we can build up to the roof. Now we are waiting for more benevolent donors like you to complete the plastering of the floor and walls. Once it is done the children will have the new big space to study and sleep.

We request you dear donors to continue supporting us by spreading words to your friends and relatives. The children are eagerly waiting to use the hall.

We thank you once again for the support.

This Child is supported by "YOU"

Vikram is 12 years old boy residing in 12, Kamaraj Nagar, Ariyamangalam, Tiruchirappalli District, Tamil Nadu. He was enjoying all the love, care and affection of his father as the only child. His father died in an accident in 2001. After his father’s death his mother got remarried and she gave birth to a girl child. Now his mother and his step father are concentrating only on the girl child and they least care for Vikram. This made Vikram a rag picker and he started to take care of himself as he did not get enough food. The mother could not educate Vikram as the step father is not supportive. Our New Life team identified him and gave a continuous counseling to him and his mother. Now he is studying 5th standard in our child labour special school. After a few counseling sessions his mother is also taking care of him.

Our special school teacher Mrs. Selvi says that in the beginning Vikram was arrogant and never obeyed the teacher, and quarreled with other children often. After some time, there is a drastic change in his attitude. Education along with nutritious food has made a remarkable change in the life of Vikram. This is made possible only with the help of donations made by noble hearts like you and so many Vikrams are given an opportunity to improve their self esteem, sense of pride, confidence and motivation to continue their education.
