Developing the skills of the children.

The parents in Kajapet are happy that their small children who could not be cared for by them are now being taught lessons to develop the skills of their children. During this month, the children between the age of 2-3 were taught to identify colours in our early learning center. The teacher taught the colours through rhymes, activities like grouping things of same colours, picture charts stories, etc. 

Ratha and Ram (names changed) have three children. Malar, 2-1/2 years, is their first daughter. The other two are twins aged 1. Ram goes to work only when there is work (on an average  15 days in a month). Their monthly income is $125. Ram has all the vices and spends most of his income on that. Ratha finds it difficult to feed and take care of Malar and her twin sisters. From June 2016 Malar is coming to our early learning center. Ratha is now relieved that Malar gets a nutritious meal and being taken care of well by our center teacher and caretaker. Children like Malar are being admitted in our early learning centers and are well cared for.

During  this quarter, we got funds to maintain the center through local donations and borrowed from friends. If we get more supporters and donors, we are sure that we can provide the children with more nutritious food and use quality learning materials. Kindly support the project dear donors, as this will lay a strong foundation for these children who come from the crime prone community.

Thanking you

Support him to build his future

Hari (name changed) is now in the 9th standard. Being born to a poor mother he grew up in a small village near Musiri. He has an elder sister and a younger brother. Hari's father deserted his family before 5 years and started living with another woman. Hari's mother takes up whatever work she can do and with the coolie she earns ($50 approximately per month) takes care of the children. After knowing about this poor boy's situation, Hari was admitted to our home.

Hari is average in his studies. But he is very good at sports. In the school sports day, he got first prize in kabadi and running and second prize in shotput. He is very happy to receive the awards. "I am very happy that I am participating in sports and getting prizes. My mom usually scolds me that I am playing and not studying well. But now, after joining the home I am motivated by the New Life team to take part in sports. They also help me in studying by coaching me in the evenings. With this support I am sure that my future will be bright. I will become a police" We can see boh the pain of the past and the hope of the future in his eyes. 

From June to August 2016 $199.28 was donated by you dear donors. With this donations we paid the salary of the cook. Thank you dear donors for the support.

Seetha wants her son to become a teacher

Dear donors and wellwishers,

Greetings from New Life!

Prem is the son of a coolie Mr. Raja and Mrs.Seetha a house wife (names changed). The family income is very low at $100 per month. Prem has an elder brother and a younger sister. His parents are less educated and want their children to study well. So they are sending the three children to school. Prem is an average student. He studies in 11th standard in the nearby Government School. He wants to be coached in his studies. But the parents could not do that. 

Mrs. Seetha says, "Though I want my children to study well, I could not coach them in their studies. I studied upto 6th standard. My husband also could not spend time on children's studies as he comes home very tired after long hours of hard physical work. It was then we admitted Prem to the coaching class of New Life. Before going to the coaching class he used to score 45% marks. But after joining the class, we can see the improvement in him. In the 10th standard Public Exams he scored 62% of marks. We are happy about it. I hope he will score more in his 12th Public Exams, thanks to the coaching class. I dream of him becoming a teacher and lead a good life unlike now. I believe this will happen. "

Children like Prem whose parents are less educated or illiterates are admitted in the evening tuitions of New Life. They are being coached byan experienced teacher. Their scores have improved much and their interest in studies too has improved. This is all possible only by the noble support we get from you dear donors. 

During this quarter, we have not received any donations. The expenses of running the coaching classes are borne by borrowings from wellwishers. Hence we appeal to you to donate generously and also morally support the project  by spreading words about our work to your near and dear ones. Your words carry weight and we are sure that the project could be continued successfully with your support.

Thank you dear donors for being with us.

With regards
