"Hurray! We are back to school and in the next class"

"Hurray! We are back to school and in the next class" happily shouts the children in Poonjolai, our home. After a month's vacation, the children are back to school in the month of June. They are so happy to be with their friends in the school and home, though occassionally we can find the pinch of sadness in face as they had to come away from their near and dear ones.

We, at New Life are much pressurised this year as Sathya should write her High school final exams. She is to be coached specially as she finds it a little difficult to study Maths and English. She is spending additional hours studying besides attending the Communicative English class. The others are as playful as they are.  

A donor gave a mixie as donation to the home. We are trying to rope in volunteers to come during the weekends to spend time with the children. The children are given healthy nutritious meal and since this is the beginning of the academic year, we are mobilising donations for their educational needs.

The home is functioning with the generous support from people like you and we are grateful from making this possible. Kindly spread words to your friends and relatives as we are only providing the minimum basic needs to the children due to paucity of funds. If we can mobilise more funds, we will be in a better position to provide them with extra skills coaching.

Thanking you

Help these women to change

Dear Donors,

Thanks to your donations the inmates of the Special Prison have been trained in so many trades like Tailoring, vermi compost production, candle, washing powder, incense powder making, etc. These trainings have given them courage and confidence to face their future and the community once they get released. The trainings have also helped them keep themselves busy and engaged instead of idling away the time in prison and dwelling in the past/fearful thoughts.

The women who were forced into activities that conflict with law, either because of their poverty or due to emotions were now given a new livelihood skill which will help them to get settled with self pride. All this is possible only with your support. You made this happen.

Your continued support (both financial and moral) will help other women inmates who want to change. The organisation is now planning to give training on Kundan Jewellery production to the inmates. The training will be given to 30 beneficiaries for a month. Kundan Jewellery is the art of making jewels with gem stones. The women are fond of these jewellery as they are cheaper and it comes in vibrant colours that match their attire. Hence it is a profitable venture.

So kindly spread words about this project to your friends and relatives. We can start the training in the next month if we receive the required donation of $360

We require generous donors to support us continue working for this cause. Kindly help us.

Regards

Dear Donors,

In the upcoming academic year 2014-2015, 10 out of the 26 students of the special school for child labour in Kaja Pettai will be joining regular school. The children, who had been coached by an experienced teacher for two years now, will be admitted to classes based on their age and standard. The teacher takes them to school on a regular basis since March 1st which is essential in breaking the inhibitions and hindrances the children have in attending regular schools.

One of the children who will be going to regular school is Khan (name changed). Forced by parents to drop out from school when he was studying 5th standard, Khan started working in a silver factory. The staff of New Life counseled and convinced his parents to make him continue his education. He is a bright student and picked up well in the class. Now he is going to be admitted in 6th standard in a regular school. Khan’s ambition is to become a doctor.

Many such Khans can be made to continue their education with the support from you dear donors. Kindly support these children. You can also support the children who are going to regular schools and who have no one to guide or coach them at home in their studies. For this we have the “Supplementary Education Project”. Here the children are coached by experienced teachers in the after school hours. This helps the poor children whose parents are mostly illiterates/less literates and who could no support these children in their studies. Please visit the below link for supporting our supplementary education project at: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/supplementary-education-to-100-children-in-india/

Kindly support this project by spreading words to your friends and relatives too.

Thanking you
