The project is aimed at addressing youth with sustainable skills and empowerment which provides them with a guaranteed skill set, enhanced employment opportunities and building themselves with a comfortable life.

We have intensified our current efforts and services to young people only through the ongoing support from donors like you. Thank you for the wonderful change you have created in the lives of these young individuals.
Let’s lend our support to this young generation and set them free to chase their dreams.
Manimekalai always dreamed of being a nurse and helping other people. However, Mani’s financial constraints, for one thing was a barrier to the access of her education.
Mani, 18 years old hails from Pillapalayam , Musiri Taluk of Trichy District, Tamil Nadu, India. She has a brother Karthick employed as a driver and sister Yuvarani studying Grade X. The former was forced to drop out from schooling and pushed into the work force as her father Muthuvel had serious drinking habits. Born unto a poor family, full filling the basic amenities of life was a point of issue to them. However the driving vigor in educating the children has earned the entire work hours of Selvakumari, Manimekala’s mother in achieving her intension.
Mani is now pursuing her Paramedical Course. This support will help her live an independent life as well as support her family financially.
Your willingness to help children in our community will make a difference in their lives.
Many children grow up with their parents working in neighbourhood towns. This involuntary migration is sought in most of the rural areas with the aim to escape from unemployment, social discrimination and disaster. These ‘home alone’ children are left without attention, become early drop outs from school, more likely to be depressed and often suffer from health problems. As they are neglected by their parents, they lack proper food, education, and care, sexual abuse, etc.
Our main aim is to provide such children a secured future and help them with their denied rights – food, safety & education. The programme has been shown to raise children’s achievement in a significant and sustained manner and to improve relationships between children and parents. Towards this end, monetary support will be extended to the children till they reach their high school, who in turn will utilize the amount for nutritional, educational, medical & toiletry expenses.
This report summarizes the activities reached out during the quarter. Our residential home had catered to 33 children's needs during the previous year. From this list of 33, we had narrowed down the criteria to the most deserving children who are in need of our immediate support. In line to this, the first move in the programme was confirmation of beneficiary list. The identified target was called for a general orientation on the programme and its activities. The orientation programme held counseling and vocational guidance for the children to be closer to their family, have a warm feeling, and create a friendlier environment. Parents were educated on various Govt. schemes that are available in health, education, employment and social security.
Children were insisted on opening joint bank accounts to help them receive uninterrupted financial support. This support will help them continue their schooling without any difficulties and place them on a much comfortable mind set.
Again, thank you for all you do for our kids. You are a part of their lives too.
We extend our sincere thanks to all our donors for their recent donations to Society for Poor People Development (SPPD), Trichy. Your interest in helping out our children will now place them in a better position to face the future ahead.
Thanks to your donations, our programme is going very well and our students are making good progress. The kitchen garden maintained by them has yielded good harvest. During this quarter, the Children’s home Caretaker had to spend extra time in coaching the children with their annual exam preparations to be held in April 2014. They have successfully completed their exams and are now on their vacation leave. We expect all of them to move on to their next grade level. However, three of our students who had appeared for the Government Board examinations have secured good marks. They were provided with special training in vocational skill training.
In continuation to the visit of Mr. Peter Lahiff from Language in Group, Ireland in Jan. 2014 who was present at our Community Centre for a month to assess the work on the development of the English programme reached out to our home students for the past five years we had received the following assessment report from him. The assessment report narrates that “This communicative English Programme was a successful implementation carried out for the children at SPPD Children’s Home. Children should first realize the varied difference in the language when it comes to the point of subject learning and communication. The student’s contribution towards this concept has created much improvement in their communication skills and school performance”.
A special word of thanks to Mr.Senthilnathan Natarajan, Rajkumar A, Sridhar Janakiraman, Janakiraman Manoharan, Uma Maheshwari, Senthilkumar Ganeshan, Arul Prakash Mani, Dhivahar Murugaesan, Guruprakash Gurusamy, Neil Murphy, Arpit.Katariya, Rajkumar Karuppiah Rajan (donors of this quarter) who have contributed generously towards this good cause.
