We extend our thanks to all of you for your immense support!
We are pleased to say that the ongoing support of Global Giving has helped us open up the confidence in the minds of many poor children with respect to their education.
Students who were enrolled in this support are now pursuing their IX Std. and most of them have secured good marks in their quarterly examination, with the exception of few who require coaching in certain subjects.
In August 2012, we organized a function inviting the students and their parents under this support. As our Annual General Body meeting was calendared on the same date, we had the honour of our Board President Mrs.R.Gayathri and other members to distribute the Educational Material Kit to our students.
We place our entire belief that your support would continue in the days to come as well.
Your actions today will continue your legacy of generosity in the lives of these future leaders. We will come up with more updates on the project and the beneficiaries soon.
Name : S.Sasidaran
Grade : Std.IX
School : Govt. Hr. Sec. School, Alakarai, Musiri Taluk, Trichy District
S.Sasidaran is studying 9th Std. in the Govt. Hr. Sec. School, Alakarai. He belongs to a very poor family. Two years back his father expired in an accident. Even before his father’s demise Sasidaran’s family was in a very poor shape. His father never used to support the family neither do any work. His mother was the only source of income to the family. She is a weaver and earns Rs.30/- per day. With this little income she had to support the entire family. Three meals a day was uncertain for them. They live in a rental house. Though they have relations they do not support her in times of difficulty.
With warm regards,
We wholeheartedly thank all of you for your wonderful support!
SPPD is glad to declare that with the support of GlobalGiving, we have successfully completed a year in this project.
Initially, the students enrolled in this support were deprived of their basic educational requirements due to the poor family background. Their inability to pay their tuition and fees, purchase of books and other materials would have lead them harshly to be dropouts at a very early age.
After genuine verification, 50 students were enrolled under the project. With the much expected support at their reach, they were able to continue their studies and improve their concentration in studies. Almost all of them have successfully cleared their exams and at present they are in the IX Grade. Congratulations to all these students who have shown great achievement despite their poor status.
We strongly hope that your support would continue in the days to come as well. Your care and support for the children will go a long way not in just providing the much needed education but also in reinforcing their faith that they are not alone and the society cares for them.
We will come up with more updates on the project and the beneficiaries soon.
Name : M.Jeeva
Grade : Std.VIII
School : Saraswathi Vidya Sala Mania Middle School
Jeeva’s father with the partnership of three others, were employed with charcoal business. But it earned him a minimum salary, which was insufficient to feed and educate his children. During his free time he used to work in the farm. His mother is a housewife. She was deprived of her basic needs. She and her brother used to receive old clothes from the school officials. In spite of their poor situation, the children were always neat & clean and Jeeva was very interested in studies. Her interest in studies had marked our interest in supporting her.
Let us take this great opportunity of thanking Ms.Julie Kheffache, Mr.Shankaranand Hariharan, Mr.Ranjith Ranganathan, Ms.Clare Bassett, Ms.Swarna Muruganand and others who had contributed generously towards a good cause.
As you reflect on what you are grateful for in your own life, please know how grateful we are for your support, love, and care to our children. We'd like you to know that your thoughtfulness is truly making a difference in the lives of so many.
Your charitable donation has allowed us to purchase the much-needed supplies that will directly benefit our children in this program – Uniforms, Innerwear, Footwear, Note books , Stationeries like pens, pencils, erasers, scale, geometry box , toiletries like bathing and washing soap, coconut oil.
We are pleased to share one of the beneficiary story benefited by the project
