Dear Donors,

You have a great news to hear in this report.  

$703.27 set aside last quarter for supporting the children (once child labourers) is spent during this quarter, A grand function was organised on March 12th. 6 children were supported with the available funds. Out of this Nathan and Geetha (names changed) were supported consecutively for two years. Nathan is in the second year of undergraduation. Geetha is in her 12th standard. The other 4 are from Kaja Pettai, Musiri and Arangoor. The boy from Kaja Pettai is doing his 9th dsdjstandard. The girl Nivea from Musiri is in her 11th standard. The boys from Arangoor are in their higher studies.These children from Arangoor are the children of the special community called Kudu kudupai kaarar, the Tamil Soothsayers. It was a great proud filled moment to see our children competing in all their oddities with the creamy layer.  

Nivea’s(name changed) father passed away 3 years back when she was 12 years old. They live in extreme poverty. Her mother works in a cotton mill and earns Rs 125 daily. She has got are elder brother Praveen doing his BE. Their uncle supports them financially for their education. When Nivea was 7  years old she was rearing goat. When the New Life team found her working, they took efforts to join her in our special school. She studied till 4th standard in our Special School for Child Labour in Manamedu. She was admitted in the 5th standard in the nearby regular school.

She is intelligent.She was promoted to the higher standards with good scores. In the tenth standard state level exams she scored 80%. At present she is studying in 11th standard. This girl is one among the children selected for education support in this quarter. Nivea says this money will help her pay her tution fees in the school and to buy notebooks. 

Nivea's teacher Mr. Srithar says, "Nivea is a very bright student. When she studied in the special school she will be the first to answer all my questions. She is much confident and brave. When I asked her what is her goal in life, her eyes glittered with passion. She said I want to become a lawyer. I wish that this girl should shine in her life like her glittering eyes."  

Many thanks for your constant support to the deserving children like Nivea. Kindly spread words about our project to your friends and relatives. This will help us reach more children like Nivea.

With gratitude

Dear Donors, 

Your favorite home 'Poonjolai' (The garden of flowers) is giving shelter to one more girl child now.

In December, the principal of the school where our children study, recommended to admit a girl in our home. She has no father. She is studying in 11th standard. Her story in the words of her mother: "Mam, Rekha's (name changed) father died six years back. My sister told me that she will take care of Rekha and brought her here this year. I trusted my sister and sent my daughter with her. I stay with my father in law who is very old and sick. I go to coolie work. 

When I come to see Rekha, I can see that she is not the same as before and she was hiding something to me. When I visited her this time, I can see that she is much upset and unhappy. I inquired her and to my shock, came to know that my sister is illtreating her. Rekha was asked to cook and do the household chores. She was not given time to study. And to my dismay she was not fed properly. I decided to take her away from my sister's home. 

Rekha is a good student. So when I approached the school principal, she wanted Rekha to continue her studies. She called you and now we are here."

After hearing the poor girl's story New Life decided to give shelter to Rekha in our Poonjolai home. And now Rekha is happy, studying, playing and eating well. She is studying well now without any hindrances. 

During this quarter we received a donation of  $540.77 This amount is spent for:

Food expenses: $499.01

Dresses (Dresses for 2 boys) - $13.07

Thanking you

Continue supporting the children dear friends.

Dear friends,

We value your trust in our organisation and the commitment you have towards our project of providing home to the poor single parented children. We thank you for helping us continue our work.  

The home built is now providing shelter for the underprivileged poor children who are either single parented and/or whose parent/s involve in activities that conflict with law. In December, the principal of the school where our children study, recommended to admit a girl in our home. She has no father. She is studying in 11th standard. Her story in the words of her mother: "Mam, Rekha's (name changed) father died six years back. My sister told me that she will take care of Rekha and brought her here this year. I trusted my sister and sent my daughter with her. I stay with my father in law who is very old and sick. I go to coolie work. 

When I come to see Rekha, I can see that she is not like before and she was hiding something to me. When I visited her this time, I can see that she is much upset and unhappy. I inquired her and to my shock, came to know that my sister is illtreating her. Rekha was asked to cook and do the household chores. She was not given time to study. And to my dismay she was not fed properly. I decided to take her away from my sister's home. 

Rekha is a good student. So when I approached the school principal, she wanted Rekha to continue her studies. She called you and now we are here."

After hearing the poor girl's story New Life decided to give shelter to Rekha in our Poonjolai home. And now Rekha is happy, studying, playing and eating well. 

All this is possible only with the noble support from you dear donors. Now we come to you with a plea to help us raise donations of $1620 for buying cots for the children. We have a posted a micro project for this purpose and the link is:

Thank you once again for all your support
