Help them to meet out their education needs

Dear friends,

Suma (name changed) is living in Kaja Pettai and was stitching sacks. She is 13 years old and due to her poor family background, she had to drop out from school while she was in 7th standard. She started supporting her family financially by stitching sacks. Her soft hands had wounds caused by the needle used in stitching sacks.

The teacher of our special school, saw her sitting in front of her home and was perplexed by her tear filled eyes. She went near Suma and inquired what happened. Suma was first hesitant to narrate her story, then she told about her fate and her interest to continue her studies. So the teacher, together with the counselor met Suma's mother and convinced her to send Suma to the special school. Now Suma is in the special school, and she might be admitted to the regular school next academic year.

The salary for the teachers, the lunch expenses and part of the rent of New Life's special schools are now being supported by a funder. And your beloved organisation is now approved by the Government to give free trainings in its premises for people above 14 years. Hence what we require now is support for the balance of the rent ($10 per center per month) and the education expenses (fees, notebooks, learning materials, etc.) to an extent of $180 on an average per child per annum for 25. Hence we need your continued support to educate these children. We will be making the necessary changes in the project soon. 

We thank you for the support you have been providing so far. Kindly support the project by spreading  words too to your friends and relatives. You know them better and your words carry weight. 

With gratitude

The home is colour washed.

Dear Donors,

During the vacation, i.e. in the month of May, the old building of the home was colour washed. Colours that are vibrant are chosen and the work is completed spending $520. This has to be done as the old building was very dull and not neat. You can see the newly coloured hall in the photo attached. Since the amount reserved for cots had to be diverted for this, we could not buy the cots as per plan. The balance $480 is used to repay the loans. As you already know, we have borrowed loans for construction and it needs to be settled to the tune of $20520 ($3480 settled with your donations). 

We are requesting you to kindly support us in raising the required funds for this project by spreading words to your friends and relatives. Thank you for your moral and financial support.

With regards

Help these children have moral support

Dear Donors,

Thank you for the continued support given by you to these poor children have coaching for their studies.

Abdul (name changed) was picking up rags all through the day for a wage of Rs.10/- and was happy with that. He was spotted by the New Life team and was admitted to the special school for child labourers run by New Life. After two years he was admitted to regular school and also in the coaching class run for children like Abdul who needs coaching which their family could not give. Now he is in 7th standard, confident of getting good scores and of a good future.

Children who are poor, deprived, who had been child labourers and now going to regular schools are being supported by the supplementary education (coaching) classes run by New Life. These children will otherwise find it difficult to study or do their homeworks as their parents (who are illiterates or less literates) after their long hours of hard work cant coach them. But for these evening classes, they will be wandering or playing in the streets.

We thank you dear donors, who have contributed in conducting these classes. We also request you to spread words to your friends and relatives, and help us continue this project and benefit more and more children.

With gratitude,

F. Beatrice Vanaja
