Help these children have moral support

Dear Donors,

Thank you for the continued support given by you to these poor children have coaching for their studies.

Abdul (name changed) was picking up rags all through the day for a wage of Rs.10/- and was happy with that. He was spotted by the New Life team and was admitted to the special school for child labourers run by New Life. After two years he was admitted to regular school and also in the coaching class run for children like Abdul who needs coaching which their family could not give. Now he is in 7th standard, confident of getting good scores and of a good future.

Children who are poor, deprived, who had been child labourers and now going to regular schools are being supported by the supplementary education (coaching) classes run by New Life. These children will otherwise find it difficult to study or do their homeworks as their parents (who are illiterates or less literates) after their long hours of hard work cant coach them. But for these evening classes, they will be wandering or playing in the streets.

We thank you dear donors, who have contributed in conducting these classes. We also request you to spread words to your friends and relatives, and help us continue this project and benefit more and more children.

With gratitude,

F. Beatrice Vanaja

Fun with college students

The Joy of Giving
The Joy of Giving

Dear Donors,
To support the children going to school and who cant be guided by their parents in their studies, supplementary classes are being conducted in the slums of Kodappu and Kajapettai. It benefits the school goers from the 4th standard to 10th standard.
These children have attended the Joy of Giving Programme conducted by the Students of National Institute of Technology (NIT), a renowned Engineering college in Trichirappalli. During that time, the wishes of the coaching class children were collected and given to the NIT students. They in turn presented the children with their wishes and that function was celebrated in New Life office. The children were given emergency lights, toys, cricket bat and ball, volley ball, notebooks, story books, bags, shoes, watches etc. The children who attended the function were so happy that their long time dreams have come true.
The pongal day, a famous festival was celebrated in Kodappu, by our coaching class students. They organized a gala function where the children and their parents performed dances. Certificates were issued to the coaching class children who participated in the Play Mela conducted in the month of October 2013. The function was a grand success.
The children have written their annual exams now and are waiting for their results. We thank you, dear donors for supporting this cause and helping these poor, deprived children to continue their education. Kindly spread words about the cause you believe in and help us pay the salary of the teachers who do this great work.
Thank you.

He is the PROUD breadwinner of the family now.

Hilton(name changed), called me just now to inform that he bought a new two-wheeler. I am so happy to see him as the proud owner of a two-wheeler, who, 8 years ago was struggling to find a support to continue his education.

Hilton's father was a rowdy and when he fell ill nobody was ready to support his family. Hilton's mother started earning by sweeping a hospital and she had three daughters who were unmarried. It was difficult for her to feed the children and she could not spend for the boy who wanted to continue his studies. New Life was conducting supplementary education (coaching) classes for the children in their locality and Hilton approached us.  

The teacher admitted him in the class and he was financially supported by the organisation to continue his studies. Hilton successfully completed his schooling due to the support from the supplementary education class teacher and of course his efforts. Then he continued to study with the scholarship given by New Life and came out with flying colours in his under graduate examination. Now he is working in a company as Accounts Clerk and is confident of redeeming all the debts borrowed by his family so far. We feel very happy to see his progress. 

Hilton says that if he was not supported by New Life when he was in class IX, he would now be roaming in streets, and anxiously says "Who knows? I too would have turned to be a person in conflict with law".

So many such children are being coached in our Supplementary education class. In the month of November, the students from NIT, a famous engineering college in Trichy wanted to gift these children in the supplementary education class with their wishes. And  we had a gala get together in the NIT campus and the children participated in many competitions and got many prizes. On November 20th, we had a function in our office, where the children were gifted with their wishes. It is great to see that most of the children wished for things that will help them in their studies.

We, thank you dear donors for supporting the children like Hilton to become good citizens and lead a decent living.

Teachers' Day celebrated

On September 5th, Teachers' Day was celebrated by the children in our coaching classes. In India,Teachers Day is celebrated on the birthday of Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, a great teacher and late President of India.

On that day the Children performed a variety of cultural programmes to make their coaching class teachers happy. They danced, sang, performed a humourous skit. A cake was cut by all the teachers and the teachers were asked to dance with the children. It was a wonderful moment, which showed the closeness our teachers have with the children.

The quarterly (I term) examinations started on September 12th and are ending on 20th for higher classes. For primary school children it started on September 12th and ending on 23rd. The children are now busy preparing for their examinations. We expect that the children will perform well with the support of the teachers. The teachers are to be paid continuously and a decent amount so that the project achieves the desired results. For this we require support from people with generous mind. 

Your support will enable children to cope with their syllabus as it will not possible for them to get support from their less literate/illiterate poor parents.

Thank you friends.

Regards
