Just a few days ago, an eight-year-old girl with multiple disabilities was found standing alone outside the doors of Snehalaya. We are happy to announce that we have taken her in as a new member of our family and named her Nandita. We now have 63 children, with the dream of helping many more. Our aim remains to make every child independent giving them a life with love, happiness and dignity.
These children remain some of the most vulnerable in the world, with nobody to care for them, no social services, NHS, medical aid or money for food and shelter, leave aside health and education and even parents mercilessly decide to abandon them. As part of our 'Sponsor a Child' program, for $40 a month, you can provide shelter, food, clothing, healthcare and education for children like Nandita.
Please consider helping Nandita through fundraising or donating whatever you are able to. GlobalGiving is adding 30% bonus for donations upto $1000 received on 15th June. Please consider donating on 15th June to avail this opportunity and help us more on http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/snehalaya-meaning-the-home-with-love-in-hindi/
Your continued help and support is much appreciated. Please get in touch with me for any questions or further information, with regards and best wishes,
Dr BK Sharma
Since last report for progress of School and having completed the borewell with your help, we are happy to inform that ten of our children participated in Special National floor Hockey Championship for disabled children held at Shimla as part of team from Madhya Pradesh and won silver medal standing runners up. Six out of ten have been selected for special coaching being held in Agartala in April for selection for national team to participate in special Olympics to represent India's special floor Hockey team.

AS YOU KNOW alongwith ongoing facilities in Snehalaya, WE ARE PRESENTLY ADDING A SCHOOL TO OUR "SNEHALAYA COMPLEX", a new borewell is successfully drilled in Nov. and is providing water for the needs of Snehalaya and its children, thanks to our 81 supporters in Sept. through GlobalGiving. It was an experience for me to have seen the drilling to bring water out of 410 feet depth and then our team placing the motor and pipes in the indigenous manner. Now we have a permanent place on GlobalGiving for contributions by tax payers in USA with tax benefits through http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/snehalaya-meaning-the-home-with-love-in-hindi/
