The education and skills give them the bargaining

Mrs. Visalatchi
Mrs. Visalatchi

Mrs. Visalatchi, is the vocational teacher of our special school for child labourers in Alamarathupatti, a small village in Trichy district. Most of the children who attend the special school were earlier employed in goat rearing or mat weaving. Mrs. Visalatchi teaches them the alternate livelihood skills in stitching, embroidery, basket making, and making paintings with waste iron wires. She says the skills taught give the children confidence and the skills in stitching help them in stitching their torn clothes, fix buttons, etc. Two of her students Ayyanar (16) and Podumani (17) got skilled in embroidery while they were in our special schools. Now they are employed in a textile industry in Tiruppur and earning Rs.100/- per day. This is more than twice the wages paid locally in Musiri panchayath in which their village is located.   

When a child is unskilled he is exploited. Once he gets skilled and educated, he gains bargaining power and knows to protect him from exploitation. This is made possible only by educating the children, says Mrs. Visalatchi. And educating them in turn is possible only by people like you who support us in running the schools. So kindly continue supporting us and we request you to spread words to your friends and relatives.

Attitude grows with the seedlings

Certificate Issued
Certificate Issued

"We meet today
To thank Thee for the era done,
And Thee for the opening one"

WISHING YOU ALL A HAPPY NEW YEAR.

We are overwhelmed that all the 28 trainees who attended the poly bag nursery training are now in possession of a certificate. The certificates were issued to them in a function on 2nd October, the Gandhi Jayanthi Day. by the Superintendent of Police, Trichirappalli. You can see a trainee receiving the certificate in the photo. Our trainer handed over the raised seedlings to the prison superintendent for planting them inside the prison.

Mr. Vaiyapuri who learnt to raise the nursery says he will have his nursery once he gets discharged and wants to specialize in ornamental plants. He says he found happiness when he planted the seeds, watered them and when he saw them grow and being handed over for planting. It gives me a feeling of constructive power and channelises myenergy positively, says Mr.Vaiyapuri.

Since the Prison department is happy with the training pattern of New Life they have asked us to give further trainings to the inmates on a continuous basis. This is possible only with the support of funders like you. Hence we request the support of your good selves in taking our project further and spread words about the same to your friends and relatives.

Thanking you

The home on construction

Hall constructed
Hall constructed

Dear Donors,

We are thankful for the donations given by you which helped us in constructing the hall for the 50 children. The  construction is in progress and the plastering work has to go on . Only a hall can be built with the donations we mobilized and plastering work has been temporarily stopped due to heavy rains. The hike in the price of the construction materials too have temporarily slowed down the progress. We are now depending on the spread of words for help in supporting the project which will provide spacious, ventilated bed rooms for girls and boys separately.

We once again thank you for the help you gave so far and thank in advance anticipating your volunteerism in spreading words about the need.

With regards
