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!
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.
It has been a great honour for us to be able to tell you of all the wonderful things YOUR SUPPORT has made possible for our community children.
The students under this support come from a very poor background. Most of their parents are uneducated and they were unable to manage the entire expenses of their family. Moreover to meet out their children’s educational expenses were yet another important responsibility on their shoulders.
Your generous contribution has made a sweeping change in the lives of these children. You have made all this possible this year and we feel lucky to have your support!
Students enrolled to this support have successfully completed their half yearly examinations and most of them have secured good marks with the exception of few who require coaching in certain subjects.
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.
Name : J.Rajkumar
Class : Std.IX
Mother’s Name : Saroja
Father’s Name : Jayaraman
School : Govt. Adi Dravidar Boys Hr. Sec.School, Thandalaiputhur
J.Rajkumar is studying 9th Std. in Govt. Adi Dravidar Boys Hr. Sec. School, Thandalaiputhur. He belongs to a very poor family. His parents are working as coolies (daily wage labourers). This occupation is not permanent. They live in a rental house. Sometimes they don’t have money to pay their house rent. There is no electricity in their house. Their income was sufficient only to feed the family. Three meals a day was uncertain for them.They have two children. Only during festive season, they used to have non-vegetarian food and new clothes only once in a year. They were unable to get their children the basic materials required for school.
In August 2012 he was provided with the following educational materials. School Fee, Uniform (two set), inner garments (2 sets), Stationery (pen, pencil, eraser, geometry box), Bathing Soap, Footwear ( 2 sets), Tooth brush and powder (each 3), Talcum powder, hair oil and school bag.
Impact : At the onset, this student was embarrassed to go to school as his parents were unable to provide him with his educational materials on time. Often he borrowed learning guides from his friends, stayed back at school, copied them down and returned home at late hours.
Now with this support, he is able to school without any complexity in his mind. He is able to concentrate on his studies and secure good marks in all his subjects. As most his educational materials are provided, his parents are able to get him his other requirements and also take care of their younger son’s educational needs.
We extend our thanks to all of you for your immense support!
We are pleased to say that the ongoing support of Global Giving has helped us open up the confidence in the minds of many poor children with respect to their education.
Students who were enrolled in this support are now pursuing their IX Std. and most of them have secured good marks in their quarterly examination, with the exception of few who require coaching in certain subjects.
In August 2012, we organized a function inviting the students and their parents under this support. As our Annual General Body meeting was calendared on the same date, we had the honour of our Board President Mrs.R.Gayathri and other members to distribute the Educational Material Kit to our students.
We place our entire belief that your support would continue in the days to come as well.
Your actions today will continue your legacy of generosity in the lives of these future leaders. We will come up with more updates on the project and the beneficiaries soon.

S.Sasidaran is studying 9th Std. in the Govt. Hr. Sec. School, Alakarai. He belongs to a very poor family. Two years back his father expired in an accident. Even before his father’s demise Sasidaran’s family was in a very poor shape. His father never used to support the family neither do any work. His mother was the only source of income to the family. She is a weaver and earns Rs.30/- per day. With this little income she had to support the entire family. Three meals a day was uncertain for them. They live in a rental house. Though they have relations they do not support her in times of difficulty.
With warm regards,
We wholeheartedly thank all of you for your wonderful support!
SPPD is glad to declare that with the support of GlobalGiving, we have successfully completed a year in this project.
Initially, the students enrolled in this support were deprived of their basic educational requirements due to the poor family background. Their inability to pay their tuition and fees, purchase of books and other materials would have lead them harshly to be dropouts at a very early age.
After genuine verification, 50 students were enrolled under the project. With the much expected support at their reach, they were able to continue their studies and improve their concentration in studies. Almost all of them have successfully cleared their exams and at present they are in the IX Grade. Congratulations to all these students who have shown great achievement despite their poor status.
We strongly hope that your support would continue in the days to come as well. Your care and support for the children will go a long way not in just providing the much needed education but also in reinforcing their faith that they are not alone and the society cares for them.
We will come up with more updates on the project and the beneficiaries soon.
Name : M.Jeeva
Grade : Std.VIII
School : Saraswathi Vidya Sala Mania Middle School
Jeeva’s father with the partnership of three others, were employed with charcoal business. But it earned him a minimum salary, which was insufficient to feed and educate his children. During his free time he used to work in the farm. His mother is a housewife. She was deprived of her basic needs. She and her brother used to receive old clothes from the school officials. In spite of their poor situation, the children were always neat & clean and Jeeva was very interested in studies. Her interest in studies had marked our interest in supporting her.
Let us take this great opportunity of thanking Ms.Julie Kheffache, Mr.Shankaranand Hariharan, Mr.Ranjith Ranganathan, Ms.Clare Bassett, Ms.Swarna Muruganand and others who had contributed generously towards a good cause.
As you reflect on what you are grateful for in your own life, please know how grateful we are for your support, love, and care to our children. We'd like you to know that your thoughtfulness is truly making a difference in the lives of so many.
