Dear Donors,

We extend our sincere thanks to all our donors for their recent donations to Society for Poor People Development (SPPD), Trichy. Children who merit special attention under this support are children orphans, semi-orphaned or affected/infected by HIV/AIDS, street children and children who come from a very poor background. Most of the children under this support have not known the usage of slippers, denied of their basic educational materials like school bag, stationery and moreover have developed inferior complexity in their minds.

With this support, they have started to wear slippers, safeguard their educational materials, dress neatly and moreover they tend to orient more towards learning goals and improvise their skills. They are able to go to school without any complexity in their minds and this will empower their self-confidence to improve their lives. The Annual Examination is going on for the students who are enrolled to this support. We hope and believe that all of them will move on to the next grade.

A special mention to Mr.Antony David, Ms.Therese Horsfield, Ms.Mounika Chetla, Ms.Lynette Pittman, Mr.Sai Ananthakumar, Mr.Manikandan Muthusamy & Mr.Ranjith Rangarajan (donors of this quarter) who contributed generously towards this good cause.

You have made all this possible this year and we feel lucky to have your support!

Thanking you.

CASE STUDY

Name : S.Dineshkumar

Class : Std.IX Age : 14 years

Mother's Name` : S.Vijaya

Father's Name : Senthilkumar

Address : Keelavadugapatti, Vadugapatti Post, Musiri Taluk, Trichy Dt.

School : Govt. Boys Hr. Sec. School, Musiri

Dineshkumar is studying 9th Std. in the Govt. Boys Hr. Sec. School, Keelavadugapatti. He belongs to a very poor family. His father is a drunkard. Though he used to go for regular work he never used to support the family. In this situation, for the past five years he abandoned his family and was staying separately. It was recently learnt that he got himself settled with another family. His mother is working as a coolie. Income is based on daily wages. This work is not on a permanent scale. If there is no work on a particular day, then there is no income. All they own is a cow. The family survives with the little income they draw from it. They are staying with their grandparents. They live in a hut house. There is no electricity in their house. His mother's income was sufficient only to feed the family. He has a brother studying in the same school. Three meals a day was uncertain for them. Even during festive season, they never used to have non-vegetarian food. His mother was not a healthy person. Often she falls sick. Besides the family expenses she had to take care of her medical expenses too. In this situation to meet out the educational expenses of her children was yet another responsibility to her. She was unable to get her children the basic materials required for school. Though they have relations, none of them support their family. Dineshkumar joined the ESC in Keelavadugapatti when he was in grade V. Even in this poor situation, he was very interested in studies. He used to go school with very shabby clothes. Later his mother approached us and requested us to enroll her son in the NRES Scheme. Considering their family situation, and his interest in studies, we enrolled him. After enrollment, he has shown much improvement in his academic records.
