We already had 63 children in Snehalaya. Now we have accepted five more girls disabled and abandoned, as transferred from Govt. run Mercy Home on 4th June. We are happy that local authorities have accepted our long pending request for not keeping girls there as these get abused and exploited there. We welcome Manisha, Rani, Sapna, Suman and Asha to our family in Snehalaya and we already see a change in their life with happiness and love they enjoy in Snehalaya. We are sure they will become independent and live happily with us contributing their part too in positive manner. 

So far only 38 children have been sponsored in Snehalaya. We request you to be generous and sponsor these girls. Just $40PM or $5000 once will sponsor a disabled Orphan / abandoned child for life giving her a new life and an opportunity to live happily with dignity.

We are honored for having been selected by GlobalGiving.uk

Gwalior Children’s Charity is featured in GlobalGiving UK’s "Back to School Education Appeal, 2013". When we heard that GlobalGiving.UK had chosen Snehalaya School for their “Back to School Appeal” we were thrilled! We know that a huge number of applications were submitted to GlobalGiving, that ours was chosen above other, also very important, schooling projects around the developing world was a deep honour for us.

As always we are sure of your support helping us to make this appeal succesful by donating now and as much possible to educate drop out rural girls from villages in our school. It has an added advantage if you make recurring donation before 28th March as your donation gets doubled with 100% matching by GlobalGiving.

Why do we need this? Because, our School, in India’s heartland, provides a vital link for thousands of young poor girls to lift themselves out of poverty, gain economic independence and sense of self-worth through education. There has been a lot of news and discussion recently about women in India since the death of the gang rape victim in December 2012. It has made India’s patriarchal society come under fierce criticism given the lack of compassion and action done by the Indian Government. We teach our girls, who all come from destitute and rural parts of Madhya Pradesh, India’s poor heartland, of their equal rights they have in Indian society despite the institutionalised patriarchy.

As Soutik Biswas, India’s BBC correspondence says, “clearly, many Indian women face threats to life at every stage – violence, inadequate healthcare, inequality, neglect, bad diet, lack of attention to personal health and well-being”* However, in India’s heartland, discrimination against women is worse where men can outnumber women 5 to 4 due to illegal abortions and baby killings because of “social values” according to Manmohan Singh, the Indian prime minister. In The ‘genocide’ of India’s daughters, Al Jazeera asks if the patriarchal mindset that runs across castes and class can be changed to prevent foeticide and infanticide.

We believe that by addressing inequality in education from an early age in women, they have more of a chance to manage the risks they are presented with. This includes enabling their economic, domestic, social and intellectual freedom through education.

We do hope you continue to be inspired by the work of our school and can donate towards the schooling of girls within India’s neglected and poor heartlands. Please do not hesitate to ask for any questions or further information, just write to me at snehalaya.gwalior@gmail.com

Thank a llot for your help, with regards,

BK
