The children have a bigger home now :)

The children of Poonjolai have a bigger home now and are much happy.

The expanded building now has one more bedroom, study room, a recreation room, Warden's room and a dressing cum store room. We take this opportunity to thank all our donors for making this possible.

The home will be fully fit if it can have the enough number of tubelights (# 6) and fans (# 6). We also require an invertor which can give uninterrupted powersupply for the children during these hot days. This might cost $800 dollars. Also the children do not have cots and beds for sleeping. So if all these can be provided to them, the home becomes a fully furnished one.

Thank you dears for making this happen. We request your goodselves to continue supporting our project. You can also do this by spreading words to your friends and relatives and you know them better.

With regards

Work Progressing

Dear Donors,

You would be happy to know that the construction work is progressing now as informed to you in the last report. The carpentry work is going on. And once the windows are made they will be fixed and the next thing is to plaster the walls and the floor. The children have come back and we could not finish the work as planned, i.e. before the school reopened for them.

However we hope the work will progress well with supporters like you and with your benevolence. Kindly support the poor children to have a spacious hall for study and bed not only through your noble donations but also through spreading words to your friends and relatives. You know them well and your words will carry weight. So I request you to kindly help in whatever ways you can.

Thanking you once again for your support. People like you keep us moving ahead.

With grateful regards

A Positive Move

Our children
Our children

Dear Donors,

Greeting from New Life!

You would be happy to receive a positive note about the construction and its completion. The children are on vacation and will be back in the month of June. We are awaiting to see their faces bloom up on seeing the completed hall for their study and bed. You will also be happy to know that the new hall can accomodate few more children, which means your beloved New Life can support few more children in the home. You will receive an update on how many more children are admitted in our next correspondence.

Our board reviewed the progress in the construction and decided to spend a portion of the general fund to complete the plastering of the hall. You will appreciate our intention and am sure you know the constraints in spending the general fund which helps to meet our operational expenses to a capital expenditure. Hence I request your goodselves to continue supporting us and to spread words about our work to your relatives and friends.

Thank you for your continued support.

With regards

Beatrice
