Thank you; You lit a candle in her life

Dear Donor,

Thank you for the support you provide to us continuously. We are happy to share with you the story of Jeyarani.

Jeyarani aged 49 is from a seashore village. Her husband used to doubt her always and beat her. Jeyarani had no children. She had no relatives to support her so she had to withstand her husband’s torture. One day her husband started beating her saying that she is not loyal to him and was very violent. Badly hurt Jeyarani was much upset and on the spurt of the moment thought that instead of living with this cruel man let her kill him. So she mixed poison in his food and gave him that food. He was killed. She was arrested for this and was imprisoned for 10 years.

New Life’s counselor met her in the prison and came to know about her. She narrated her story to the counselor and was sharing her worry about her future once she gets out of the prison. She is also feeling for her killing her husband. She was worried that once she gets out of the prison how she can run her life. She was counseled to undergo the livelihood training given by New Life.

New life conducted Candle making program in April 2012. The training included the curriculum of making candles of different sizes and shapes.  The trainees were introduced to the raw materials used, where to purchase the raw materials and market it. A hand on training was given to make candles.  She attended the training with utmost interest.  Jeyarani will be released soon and she says she will take up this as her livelihood option. She is confident of earning a minimum of Rs.100 per day. She is thankful to the donor who has sponsored her for the training and made her life secure and worthy living.

Lighting candles in the life of more women like Jeyarani is possible only through support from donors like you. Kindly spread words about what we do to your friends and relatives (you know them well) and support our work.

Thank you once again.

Work Progressing

Dear Donors,

You would be happy to know that the construction work is progressing now as informed to you in the last report. The carpentry work is going on. And once the windows are made they will be fixed and the next thing is to plaster the walls and the floor. The children have come back and we could not finish the work as planned, i.e. before the school reopened for them.

However we hope the work will progress well with supporters like you and with your benevolence. Kindly support the poor children to have a spacious hall for study and bed not only through your noble donations but also through spreading words to your friends and relatives. You know them well and your words will carry weight. So I request you to kindly help in whatever ways you can.

Thanking you once again for your support. People like you keep us moving ahead.

With grateful regards

Maheswari's childhood restored

Maheswari
Maheswari

Thank you dear donors, for choosing to support our project.

Maheswari is a 10 years old girl. She is studying 5th standard in New Life’s special school now.  Her father’s name is S. Sekar.  He is selling ice cream in Karur. He never takes care of Maheswari.  Three years before Maheswari’s mother died.   After that Maheswari had to live with her grand mother.  Grand mother did not send Maheswari to school, asked her to do household works and sent her for rag picking. 

During her leisure times Maheswari will be wandering in the streets. New Life staff saw her spending her childhood like this and talked with her. She expressed her interest to study. Then we had to counsel her grandmother who was very reluctant to admit Maheswari to the special school. After continuous counselling Maheswari is now admitted in New Life’s special school for child labourers in Ukkadai.  In the beginning she was not able to read or write.  She is studying in our school for two years.  Now she can read newspapers and others books also.  She helps younger children to read and write. She is much interested in handwork. 

Since she is picking up her studies quickly we hope she will be admitted to the sixth standard next year. She is now happy that she can study and play with children of her age. So many such children could be helped to get educated with the noble support from people like you.

Kindly spread words about our work to your friends and relatives who are like-minded. We thank you donors, once again for supporting us.
