Tailoring Training to 25 women prisoners

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 trainees are taught from the basic of pedaling the sewing machine, stitching a hand kerchief, petticoat, skirt, shimmies, blouse for girls and finally the blouse for women(it is the most wanted item by the trainees as they can stitch their own and it fetches more income). The trainees are asked to take up notes, draw the sketch, taught the proportion of measurements for each garment, do the cutting in paper, then asked to cut in cloth and then stitch.

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 trainer Mrs. Rajapriya says that she is very happy to see the trainees turning up for the training sharp at 9 a.m. each day and there is no absentee so far. The trainees are very much interested in learning the making of the different garments. They are eagerly waiting to stitch their own blouses.

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

I can have three meals a day now

Daniel in our home

Dear Donors,

Wishing you all a Happy New Year!

You would like to know what is happening here in our shelter. Here it from the mouth of Daniel, 5 years old, in our home.

"My younger brother(1 and a 1/2 years old) and I were living in our village with my mom. My father ran away and got married to another woman, says my mother. So I could not see my father. My mother goes out to coolie work. But she could not go to work often as my younger brother falls sick often and we have nobody to take care. So I could not eat all the three times most of the days. I was not going to school too.

After I came here (the home run by New Life) with my brother, I am eating three times a day. I now go to the nearby school. I am happy playing with the brothers and sisters here. Thank you for helping me," says Daniel. 

Other children like Daniel can be helped with the donations made by people like you. While thanking you for the donations you made, we also request you to kindly spread words about the work of New Life to people close to you, your friends and relatives, as only generous donations from people like you can help our poor deprived children who could not even eat three times a day.

Murali dreams to become a computer engineer

Murali
Murali

Murali is attending our coaching classes conducted for the narikurava (gypsy) children. He is in his 10th standard now. His father Minnal is a good hunter and mother Kala is good in making the bead chains. But they want their son Murali to study well and go to a job unlike them.

Murali is also interested in studies and he wants to become a computer engineer. He is confident that he will score above 80% in his 10th standard state board examination, which will decide his future. He thanks the coaching class teachers of New Life for helping him learn his lessons and guiding him. He also thanks New Life and the donors who help through New Life. Without the coaching class support he may find it difficult to compete with the other children in his class. 

40 narikurava children are being supported by this coaching class. They are much thankful as their parents are not or less educated. The dreams of these children and their parents can be made true through your continued support.

We thank you for making this possible!
