Uplift a Child International Inc

The mission of Uplift a Child International is to identify the poor and needy children, place them in a school, and support them through 10 -12 years of schooling through the high school. This will keep the children off the streets, provide them with the basic skills to develop, and give them an opportunity to emerge as self-reliant and productive members of the society. By the time the children completes high school, they will have the necessary social skills to move on in life with respect.

2014 Uplift a Child India Mission Trip

Dear Friends, Sponsors and our Well-wishers,

Recently I have been to India and visited more than a 1000 of our Uplift a Child children along with our Uplift a Child India team. We have conducted annual children programs at various locations. I visited mostly South India and some our team have visited North India. We had a great time celebrating the success of our children while rewarding them for their hard work. More details are available with tons of pictures. Please click on the link http://www.upliftachild.org/reports/2014IndiaVisitReport.pdf

We are now getting ready to coordinate School admissions for our children in India, Nepal and Philippines for the 2014 school year. Right now, children are enjoying their vacation time at home spending time with families, visiting relatives or eating Mangoes at home during the hot summer months. While they are enjoying, our volunteers are actively working on buying School Uniform cloth, taking measurements for stitching the uniforms, buying books, shoes, socks etc. so that our children look sharp with their new school uniform by the admission time.

We are thankful to 3 Dance Schools in USA for their contribution to perform a charity event with the help of their Dance School students. If you are in the area and would like to participate, please email me. Below are the dates. All the proceeds go to support children for education.

May 03, 2014      Fairfield, CT                        Vani Natyalayam School Charity Event

May 16, 2014      Alexandria, VA                  Sindhura School of Bharatanatyam Charity Event

June 01, 2014     Monroe, NJ                        Taal School of Performing Arts

 

Most of you have already started to send your checks for the school expenses. There are many of you who have either added some more new children or introduced us to your close friends. We would like to thank you for your help. We currently have a lot of children waiting for help on our webpage http://www.upliftachild.org/children.asp We welcome new sponsors to be a part of our team. Please email sam@vonumu.com directly with any questions on how to join us or volunteer.

 

Thank you and have a nice day

2013 Uplift a Child International Annual Report

2013 Uplift a Child International Annual Report

December 22nd   

 

Dear Friends, Sponsors & well-wishers,

 

Uplift a Child International celebrated its 13th year of service to less fortunate children in 2013 (2000 to 2013) during which 2,000 children have benefited. This was possible only with the help of our 515 dedicated sponsors from around the world (USA, UK, India, Ukraine, UAE, Oman, Singapore, Malaysia, Germany, Switzerland, Kenya and Saudi Arabia), 70 volunteers from east to west, and friends from all over, along with the help of our administrative teams and Board of Directors from USA, Nepal & India

 

I cannot believe how time is passing by so quickly and to realize that some of our children have already completed their college is truly remarkable. They are no longer children and I am happy to see them become adult volunteers for Uplift a Child. We are happy to provide some of our children summer internships at our Uplift a Child office in India. So far, Rajesh Sivakoti and Aslesh Yendluri have successfully completed their first year of Internship with us while pursuing their college education.  Rajesh visited Assam and has conducted an Uplift a Child annual program there and inspired our 50 sponsored children there. I can clearly see the result of our work with the example of Rajesh’s involvement with Uplift a Child. Per my calculations, at least 60-70% of our sponsored children will become a future sponsor or a future volunteer and continue our vision as they have personally experienced our goal to uplift the less privileged children in their educational careers. Rena and I are pleased to see these types of results while we are still alive and we thank God for his blessings towards helping our cause.

 

Once again, we left NO child behind in 2013. We have extended our operations to Nepal and it was very successful year. I personally visited Nepal and met all of the children, volunteers, the school and the parents; it was very successful. Mr. Loknath Tiwari is our Country Director for Nepal and is walking the same path which was created by Uplift a Child International. We are preparing to extend the same help to the Philippines from 2014.

 

Thanks to all of our Sponsors, Volunteers, Schools, Business vendors who supply us with everything we need for our children. Thank you for making a difference with your time, talent, contributions and your dedication; we will never forget your help. Our savings in this world are not what we have today but what we give to others.

 

Happy holidays and a have a great new year!

Thank you,

 

Sam & Rena Vonumu
