A single mom now is able to support her family.

Mary is proud to have earned her certificate.

Dear Friend,

With your help, 60 women completed their six months of tailoring training in December, and each received a treadle sewing machine to start her own home business. One hundred six other women are enrolled in training, 36 of whom will graduate in the coming months. These women are enrolled in the newest schools and the inaugurations took place in the fall.

Mary just completed her training. She is married with two children, but her husband abandoned them. Without his income, the family slipped even further into poverty. With the training completed, certificate in hand and a treadle sewing machine, Mary now earns enough to feed her children and ensure they can go to school.

Thank you for changing this mom’s life and the lives of her children!

a year later

One of many who was served

It was a year ago that Chennai experienced devastating flooding which killed many and destroyed cars, homes and lives. Cyclone Vardha came through this year with a wider path of destruction but India had some warning and fewer lives have been lost.  Much of the city lost power and telephone connections but we have not suffered so much as last year.

As much as possible life is back to normal and the Little Lamps home continues to serve people with mental and physical handicaps. 

Thank you for your sincere concern for those who suffered and were in greatest need.  Your gifts were of great help to these dear people.  You have not only restored their facility from the damage but brought significant improvement which they will enjoy for years to come.

Dear Friend,

     Rajeev was infected by polio during childhood and both his legs were affected, polio is a degenerative disease so he continues to lose capacity in his arms, but mostly a weakness now, he still has the ability to operate a computer.

     Before coming to our training center Rajeev had graduated from Business College but his lack of computers meant it was impossible to get work.  He quickly picked up computer skills and realized that with additional training he would be able to excel in business.

    He began advanced training alongside Daniel and helped with extra projects that built his coding skills.

     Rajeev now has a job at the local University in the business office and has twice been recognized for his contribution to the institutions success.  Because people like you care the training has changed Rajeev’s life!

     Your gift is helping young people with disabilities gain hope and self-confidence through computer training. A few months ago I was able to see the previous class graduate. Your gifts enable them to go through training and receive a quality education in computers.  Now they are working and growing in confidence.

      Many of the students come from poor families and because of their disability, they are oppressed and marginalized. The stigma is they can't do anything or pursue a career.

     Thank you for changing lives and helping people like Rajeev. Your gifts bring the change that transform lives. Without you, Rajeev, and others like him, would suffer needlessly.

Sincerely,

John Sparks
