How we changed Nelan's life

In early childhood, Nelan lost her mother due to malaria. Her father and Nelan both were working in local factories but unable to meet the end need. Even Nelan and her dad used to collect seeds and leaves from forest and sell others but still were unable to bring food to the table. With many hours of hard work Nelan was sort of tired and no interest for study or learning new skills. You can imagine the natural tendency to first find food then think about other needs.

During a survey in that area, a SANTI volunteer came to know about Nelan and asked to join SANTI Child Labor elimination school. Nelan was pretty excited and didn’t even think twice. She joined the SANTI Child Labor Elimination School established by solely by your donation. Along with study, she learnt sewing and alteration. She made Indian Blouse, Petty coat, Salwar Kamiz etc. These were sold to local shoppers. Last month she earned about 3400 Indian Rupee. This is a pretty big achievement for Nelan and as we discussed her dad is really proud of Nelan.

Nelan and her dad are both happy and this is possible because of your donation and support to SANTI. We need your support to finish the roof building project. Nelan and others do alteration work under the building that we are finishing now.

Please donate to our initiative and I am sure we will bring many more Nelan to you.

Nelan specially thanked to you “for your help to change her life and wishes you great happiness in your life”.  

God Bless,

 Ashok Dandpat

Poonam and Albin won 1st & 2nd Place in 100m run

Dear Friends SANTI children are grateful to your support and wish you to fulfill all your wishes in 2015.

In last report, I mentioned my in person experience with SANTI children. I and my wife were deeply involved in SANTI children activities. Many ideas were implemented since then and started to show better results.

My long term goal is to build an overall SANTI student body with varied interest and skills not only study but also in sports.  On 26th January Republic day of India a local industry named Orissa Cement Limited organized a municipality school level athletic competition. Many schools participated in this event and SANTI children were also participated with strong interest.

We are proud of Poonam and Albina who won 1st and 2nd position in 100 meter run competition. We are proud of their win as mentioned below.

  1. Jasita  - 2nd – Skipping
  2. Poonam  -1st - 100 meter run
  3. Albina  - 2nd - 100 meter run
  4. Mandeep  - 2nd - frog jump(Boy)
  5. Susanti - 1st – Puchi
  6. Ashish  - 2nd - 100 run (Boy)
  7. Rajkumar - 3rd - 100 meter run (Boy)

Mr. Sarat Pati is leading our effort in India for SANTI children. He is a strong supporter and follower of sports activities and without his personal interest this kind of achievement is not possible.

These children are in primary school and I wish they will continue this success and winning attitude in future. Please keep continue your support as we have a long way to go.

Thanks again and also please support building roof project by SANTI.

Sewing started to generate money & interest

Friends wish you a great 2015 ahead and wish to bring more happiness to SANTI children and youth.

In the last reporting for building roof I mentioned we were about to start training in new building and now yes we are proud to say that the building is partially built. We have finished one room, two rest rooms and started to train young students. Training is in full swing with five sewing machine and dedicated students.

We are a result oriented organization and I strongly believe SANTI youth should generate its own income. We are working hard on our goal to achieve that goal. So far we have helped local tailors to finish their work and SANTI youth were able to bring about 200 USD from their work.  The accounting related to this initiative is managed by SANTI youth and profits were distributed among these students. The money they have generated so far ignited the fire inside them to learn better the sewing skills.  

To ensure we are doing appropriate work, we invited few officers to visit our building and provide feedback on children progress.   As of now Chief District Medical Officer (CDMO), Block Development Officer (BDO), District Child Protection Officer, District Youth Co-coordinator of Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan (NYKS) and couple of other respected authorities have been visited SANTI. They all provided excellent feedback and impressed by our work. They expressed good words about adding value to the young generation of local area. As a donor you are part of this initiative and should be proud of your contributions.

We haven’t stopped working on the building construction and we want to continue because if we don’t then we will never be able to finish the building construction. Next focus is to finish the hallway and other rooms along with outside finishing.

Unfortunately, we are negative cash flow for this project and strongly need your support. Let’s put all put our energy to finish this building and provide a venue to self reliant SANTI youth.  

Thanks for your continued support.
