Children like Arun need your support

Wishing you all a Joyful Season's Greetings dear Donors,

Let us hear what Hasini (name changed) says about her son: " Arun (name changed) is my third son. My elder sons are married and they are living separately. My husband Anand (name changed) works as a load man in a saw mill. I do beedi rolling. Our income is sufficient to take care of the three of us if my husband had given what he earns to the family.But he gives only a meagre portion of his wages for family expenses since he has other vice. So I sent Arun for selling cooldrink in the roads. We got some money from it and hence I preferred Arun selling the cooldrink than studying. But Arun always wanted to study." 

Arun interrupted then and said, "One day when I was selling the cooldrink the special school teacher saw me and asked why am I not studying. I told about my family. She asked me to take her to my Amma (mom). She talked with amma and forced her to send me to school. Amma did not accept easily. But the teacher did not give up and now I am in school. I joined the special school in 2012. After two years, I was admitted to the regular school. Now I am studying 7th standard. Thanks to the teacher and those who support this project." Thank you dear donors for making this happen.  

To emphasise the importance of education to parents like Hasini, an awareness programme was conducted in KajaPet, Trichirappalli. The programme was conducted in the Corporation School. The meeting addressed the children and their parents. A special plea was placed before the regular school teachers to take action when they see a child labour. The Project Officer of Child Labour Elimination Project, The District Labour Welfare Officer, the School Principal and our Secretary of New Life addressed the crowd. It was emphasised that "Education is a wealth that cannot be lost or stolen". 

During this quarter we received donations of $ 761.84. Out of this $58.57 is spent on the part rent paid for the centers. $703.27 is set aside for this purpose. With this money we can support 4-5 children. It is proposed to disburse the education support to the children in the next quarter. And the list of children who are eligible is being prepared. Since April 2015, three children were already supported. Last year 19 children got the education support with your generous donations.  

Thank you dear donors for helping the children continue their studies and giving hope to them for a bright future. Without you this project can't be a success. Kindly keep supporting the project by spreading words to your friends and relatives who are likeminded. We aim to give education support 12 more children and require $1241 ($2004 for 12 children - $763 received in December 2015) for reaching that goal. We are sure we can help 12 children with your support. 

With regards

Wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR

Dear Donors,

Wishing you a Happy, Peaceful, Healthy and Wealthy New Year!

During this season, we remember with gratitude and love, all of you who have helped us walk through the year 2015. Without you, our projects could not have been successful. 

Santhosh lives in Kodappu. He is studying in 11th standard now. His father is a auto rickshaw driver. His mother is a housewife. Santhosh has a brother and a sister. Their monthly income is $167 which is not sufficient to meet the needs of the five people in their family. Santhosh's father Arumugam tells about his progress after he joined our coaching class.

"My son joined the coaching class conducted by New Life in Kodappu when he was studying 7th standard. At that time Santhosh was an average student and was scoring around 55%. He likes to play cricket and kabadi. We at home used to scold him for playing and not scoring good marks. But after he joined the coaching class his performance in studies improved. He scored 85% in his 10th standard public examinations. Now he is in 11th standard. And he is working hard towards his goal of becoming an engineer. He is also participating in the school cricket and kabadi team and representing the school in competitions. Needless to say that we dont scold him now for playing", Arumugam ends with a big grin.   

Coaching poor children like Santhosh is possible only with the donations you make. Yes, you help us to meet out the costs of rent, salary, etc. Kindly keep supporting this cause not only by contributing financially but also by spreading words about this project to your friends and relatives with similar mind. This will help many children like Santhosh. 

Thank you once again.

With regards

Kundan(artificial) jewelery training is geared up

Dear Donors,

Wishing you all a very happy NEW YEAR!

We have a good news to share in the start of this year. As you know, we have been trying hard to mobilise resources to conduct trainings to the inmates of the women prison. During the last quarter we mobilised $91.83 from global giving and from Innerwheel Club in Trichy. With this money New Life decided to start the training on making kundan jewelery(It is the jewelery made of artificial kundan stones).

It was also decided to use the resources, instruments and raw materials New Life already have to make good the shortfall in resources for the training. The training was started on December 30th, 2015. It will conducted for 15 days. The trainees were selected on the crieteria, that they should be discharged within a year of the training. This will help them to start their micro venture that gives them a livelihood option.     

Mrs. Seetha (name changed) is now inside the prison. When asked why she is there she said, "I was a school headmistress. One of my friends met me with another person one day. That man told me if my school teachers and friends can join the chit he is running, they will gain much. After his repeated attempts, I referred this man to my friends and school teachers. They gave money to this chit. One day this man absconded. And during enquiry people told that I introduced the chit person to them. And now I am inside the prison for the fault of referring an unknown person. hmmmm...its all my fate".

There are inmates like Seetha, who are inside for no fault of them or for unknowingly getting into some plots. These women are being trained by us and gain confidence to face the world once they get discharged. The donations you give help us train these people and change their lives.

Thank you so much for being a part of the project. Kindly keep supporting this project and help these women face the world confidently. 

With regards
