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:

Your donations will help the children have a cozy sleep and will reduce the incidences of them falling sick. Kindly spread words to your friends and relatives. Your words carry weight and this will help us reach our target early. 

Thank you once again for all your support

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

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
