Turning Point Story of Sabita

Dear friends

Sabita belongs to the poor section of the Rajgangpur, her father works as a security guard earning Rs. 5000 per month but he wastes most of them by drinking alcohol. Her mom is a housewife and looks after her four children. Life became challenging and tough for Sabita when she was studying in 12th grade. She started working as a maid in nearby homes, when Mr. Sarat Pati came to know about her. As she was hard working and interested to learn, we enrolled her in SANTI Sewing course funded by your support. That was the turning point of her life, she became very interested in sewing and currently we can say she is one of our best.  

Recently, Sabita led the effort to sell blouses at Rajgangpur Jharjhara Mahotsav (Festival). Together with 6 other youths of SANTI, Sabita was able to sell more than 100 blouses. Currently she is able to take home about Rs. 5000 per month. With huge support from SANTI she feels secured and recently completed 12th grade in Arts with second division. This is a major accomplishment for her as before SANTI she was about to give up. We wish her to achieve better success in future and will encourage her to study further.

This is a proud moment! When your donation really turned Sabita’s life in a different direction, I bet you are also proud of this achievement. Without your support it was not possible. We would like you to continue support as we need more sewing machines to be used by others to bring similar success.

Thanks again

Sanju won best singer award in school !

Sanju
Sanju

Friends hope you are going to have fun in Memorial Day weekend. We have something great to share. 

    Recently Sanju won the best singer award at annual function in school ! That’s amazing isn’t it, this school consists of students from local people not only SANTI children? I look back a little. When she was seven year old she lost her dad. As a laborer, her mother was unable to keep up with Sanju and her brother’s need. We realized this when doing survey for children who need support. We provided helping hand and brought her to SANTI home. Then she never looked back. Currently she is in 4th grade, studying pretty well and also Monitor of the class. When I asked her what she wants to be in future, she replied “I want to be a singer”. What a dream! I exclaimed. But I believe, together we can fulfill her dream. 

   There is a need to provide individual bed for each child along with tables to study comfortably. We have been trying since past but unable to have sufficient funding to support. We need about $ 1600 to make it happen, hope you can come forward to donate through Globalgiving. 

Thanks

SANTI Building is a Masterpiece

Dear Friends, 

Thanks for your continued support to SANTI. Truly the SANTI building is a masterpiece for our children as well as for our organization. because,

  • We are able to run the sewing classes inside the partially finished building.
  • Recently we organized a 3 days leadership program geared towards local youth under Nehru Yuva Kendra Program. This was not been possible in past because of expensive rental for such a suitable venue.
  • We also conducted a 3 days workshop on health and sanitization for local women by Mahila Arogya Samiti (MAS). This was highly praised by Chief District Medical Officer (CDMO).
  • SANTI is also requested to conduct a 7 days Health Worker Training Program and we are looking forward to organize this in near future.

   So far, we have finished the interior and exterior plaster for 4 rooms, 2 toilets with fittings, one Kitchen with utility provision, doors and windows in main rooms. But we still need to complete the construction to unlock the best potential.

   We need your support to finish verandah or patio work from bottom to top, water tanks, Toilet safety tank, staircase, remaining doors and windows, electrical fittings, plastering, plumbing, painting etc.

    Without your support we couldn’t have achieved this masterpiece and without your continued future support we cannot finish this noble venue please come forward to donate.

Thanks

Ashok Dandpat
