We are much obliged for your support by helping us in bringing this work to this stage and carry it further. We continue with our children in Snehalaya educating and training them. From 5th to 10th March we celebrated Holi the festival of colours, but using only flowers making it environment friendly, not using any water to set an example for others. On 10th March Rang Panchami, concluding day of Holi festival, was celebrated as Sava Dharnm Milan Samaroh when leaders of various religions joined us in Snehalaya.
I am pleased to inform that on 15th May 2015, I was honoured by JCI Club of Gwalior recognising our ongoing work in Gwalior and received the award at the hands of Mayor of Gwalior Mr. Vivek Shejwalkar in presence of members of JCI and many dignitories of Gwalior. Though I received the award but real owners are our volunteers and supporters like you as well our staff and children in our school & Snehalaya. Our volunteers are working in Nepal and states of Bihar and UP providing medical care, counselling and helping in relief works following two devastaing earthquakes there. We have vowed to take as many orphan children and homeless adults esp. women as possible in our Snehalaya to give them new home and life with dignity with aim to rehabilitate and make them independent. Please consider donating for this work as much possible, here is the link to help us provide for earthquake victims and the orphans and the homeless thereof : http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/india-nepal-earthquake-relief-work-and-orphans/ I am sure of your continuing support and more helping us carry on with these works. Please do not hesitate to write to me at email@example.com for any questions or further information or if you may like to volunteer with us from your own place or with us on floor here. Please recommend us to all your friends, colleagues, associates and family members or any one interested in volunteering with us and help us by spreading the word.

Dear friends of children in Snehalaya,
We are much obliged for your support helping us to provide for children in Snehalaya and carry it further. On 23rd Aug. 2014, Snehalaya has completed 8 years and we enter into 9th year now. On 23rd Aug. we celebrated its foundation day with hoisting of National flags and singing the national anthem of 14 countries from where volunteers have worked in Snehalaya. Dr. Bhagirath Prasad, The Member of Parliament was the Chief Guest and Dr. Gita Narahari, First lady of Gwalior was Guest of Honour. We have laid the foundation stone for the Multi-Purpose Hall and hope it will be ready for use within this year for daily needs of our children here. Cultural programme with songs, dances continued for almost three years as part of the celebrations followed by prize distribution to the children having won in annual sports and cultural competitions held on 22nd Aug. attended by nearly 500 children from various institutions including our children.
Though much has been done but much more remains to be done. We depend upon you only and hope for your continued support and more helping us to provide for these children and take more children from Streets of India. Only 38 children have been sponsored so far and we request you to consider sponsoring a child with just $ 40PM or whatever you may prefer. Please never hesitate to call me or write to me at email@example.com for any questions or further information.
