Your contribution to our project through GlobalGiving has a huge impact on the educational support for the rural children of our locality at large. We see this as a new beginning and believe more progress is possible which upshots a future full of promise and hope.
We take this wonderful opportunity to sincerely thank you for your continued support in this project (Educating for 100 poor rural children in India). Your kindness and generosity has enabled to reach out to the students who are in need of our help.
Out of the 20 girls who were enrolled to the Nursing Aide Course in Medical & Nursing Sector 19 of them appeared for the assessment exams and have successfully cleared their papers. Certificates were awarded to these students and at present they are placed at various hospitals for their on-the-job-training.
The second batch of 20 students was enrolled to the Basis of Anatomy Course. The course went off successfully as per the scheduled syllabus. On the course completion, they appeared for the assessment on 28th May 2014, results of which are much awaited.
A special word of thanks to our donors Ms.Lynette Pittman, Therese Horsfield, Mr.Venkatesan Venugopal and Christopher Godden who had contributed to this cause during this quarter.
It’s only through your continued support you can help us reach our goal. We will come up with more updates on the project and the beneficiaries soon.
Thank you for your continued support to Society for Poor People Development. By supporting our efforts, you are providing our students the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty and make a difference in their communities.
This year we have 20 girls enrolled to the Nursing Aide Course in Medical & Nursing Sector - Skill Development Initiative (SDI) – under Ministry of Labour & Employment. We will continue to expand the admissions each year. Besides the regular course, they are also provided with computer and English coaching classes to help them develop their reading and comprehension skills. They are able to carry on simple conversations with their teachers. Socially, they have become quite confident and energetic.
During the last week of February they appeared for the assessment exams. We had external invigilators to access the students’ practical session. Their results are much awaited. Our girls at SPPD have grown in so many different ways. It has been so exciting to witness their eagerness to learn, while watching their development socially, physically, academically and emotionally.

SPPD is a NGO, working for the last 19 years, for the quality life of children and women. Our initiatives are focused towards restoring the denied amenities of the disadvantaged. Through the ongoing support of generous donors, we nurture children who are orphaned, abandoned in the warmth of a family, children who are poor and belong to elderly/ailing parents, affected by HIV-AIDS, etc. Our home ensures them with free nutritious food, education, medical services and tuition, support for higher education especially girls, improve their employability skills and enable children affected by HIV to live with hope.
Since inception, SPPD has nurtured around 244 children and made education, health, food & shelter accessible to them. Presently there are 30 children at our home. Our children receive their education from the Government Schools in our locality.
Activities during the quarter
After a week’s vacation our children were back to our home in January. On their return, their height & weight was checked. Their hard work during the half-yearly exams had brought them good results.Children with health problems were treated and taken care of by the Home Care taker. Proper maintenance of the kitchen garden yielded good harvest.
We were happy to host Mr. Peter Lahiff from Language in Group, Ireland to work on the development of the English programme at our home which has its initiation since 2009. During his stay he also provided coaching classes to our children after their school hours.
This quarter R.Priyadarshini and R.Saravanan were awarded the golden star awards for their best performances during the period of time. Pongal festival was celebrated by them. They had lots of fun and excitement and expressed their thankful feelings to the donors who helped them with the celebration.
We hope and expect donors to contribute generously towards this remarkable project and help our children deserve their rightful privilege.
A special word of thanks to Mr.Santhosh Babu, Prasanna Jayaraman, Amrainder Singh, Alison Marsh, Jaisankar Nagari (donors of this quarter) who have contributed generously towards this good cause.
