Their talents took us by surprise!

Hi dear donors,

This August 15th, our children celebrated the 69th Indian Independence Day by hoisting the national flag in our Kodappu coaching center.  Special events were organised by the children. The celebrations went on till the evening, now in the Project office of New Life. The students delivered a speech on an eminent national leader and their qualities which inspired them. Gymastic exercises (like human pyramid formations) and yoga were demonstrated by the students. This was followed by dance programmes and song performances. The quiz programme ended the celebrations on an informative note. Questions were asked and small gifts, given to all of them. The children went home with a filled stomach and an inspired mind.

Archana is studying 7th standard. Her father is Nirai and her mother is KaniMozhi. She has three brothers. Archana’s parents are working as coolies (daily wage labourers). They were not able to support their children in their studies after long hours of hard work. Even if they found the time for it, they could not help the children as they are not well educated. They could not afford the money for Archana's coaching either. They heard about New Life's free coaching classes and found it a blessing to their family. Archana was reportedly an average student before joining our coaching classes. She was securing 45% marks in the subjects on an average. Now, she scores 62% average marks. She is very much interested in Science and she aims to become a nurse one day.

About her examination fear, Archana recollected: "Before joining this coaching class, I was very much afraid of examinations. I had fevers due to it. But now, I feel that my fear is slowly disappearing and I am gaining confidence too. The tips given by the coaching class teacher help me to face the exams with more will power."

Children like Archana, who have the motivation but lack the means for their studies are being helped by the coaching classes of New Life.Thanks dear donors, you have made this possible. Kindly continue supporting these kids fulfil their wishes by spreading words about the project to your likeminded friends and relatives. Our kids are waiting for your support.

With warm regards

From a shepherd boy to a police

Prabhu getting the education support
Prabhu getting the education support

Dear Donors,

Thank you for your generous donations during this quarter.

During the months July to September, the project received donations of $197.49 . The amount was received with thanks and spent for providing $167 education support to Navdeep who is studying in 9th standard. And the balance amount of $ 30 is used for paying the rent (partial) of a centre for three months. 

Let us hear the story of Prabhu from Mrs. Kalaiselvi, our Special School Staff. "Prabhu is 16 years old and due to poor family background, he had to drop out from school while he was in IV standard. He started supporting his family financially by sheep rearing. His mother C. Mani is 48 years old and works as a coolie and earns Rs 150/- per day. Some times she will not have any work and during those days the family have to starve. Prabhu's father died some years ago. And he has 2 brothers. 

When I came to know about him, I approached Mani, with much effort convinced her to stop sending the boy to the work. It was because of the boy's interest in studies and our continuous efforts, the boy was sent to the special school. He joined VIII standard in the Government Higher Secondary School, Arangur. When he received your support (the teacher means the donors here), he was studying X standard. I am proud that he scored 69% marks in the public exams held in the month of March 2015.

Now Prabhu is studying in XI standard. His dream is to become a police cop. He speaks about his dream with passion in his eyes"

The team of New Life wishes that his dream may come true. The dreams of poor, deprived children like Prabhu can be made a reality only with the support of you, dear donors. So kindly keep supporting these children, to complete their education. With you as partners, New Life wishes to support the dream of a minimum of 25 such children who were earlier child labourers. We know your words carry weight with your likeminded friends and relatives. Kindly keep spreading the message about the project close to your heart and help these children achieve their dreams. 


With warm regards

Help him grow.


"After my appa's(father's) death, I was left with nothing except my family and a small room with no proper roofing to stay with. My amma(mother) Dhanalakshmi started working as a coolie to feed all the four of us. My sister Sathya, my brother Venkatesh and me had to study with the meagre coolie my mother brought. It was very difficult," says Kumar with his eyes filled with sadness. 

The special school staff who brought Kumar to our home describes Kumar's background. Kumar's father was running a flour mill. Though he is not rich, he can feed his family and can take care of the basic needs of the children. But after his death, Kumar's paternal relatives took away the mill, the only livelihood option of the family. So Dhanalakshmi who studied only second standard was forced to go to coolie work. Since she could not take care of the educational needs of the three children, she started searching avenues for continuing her children's education. It was then she met Veerappan, our special school teacher.

Kumar and his sister Sathya were admitted to our Poonjolai home with the reference of the special school staff of New Life. After they are admitted in Poonjolai, Sathya and Kumar are getting enough food, dresses for change, and good education. Kumar  wants to become a software engineer. He studies well. He is good in English. He scores 78% average marks in his exams. He is now studying in 6th standard. 

When he was admitted, he was a very puny, malnourished child. But now he has gained normal weight and has grown up. It is all possible with the support you, our dear donors, have been providing us and these children. Kumar and our other children thank you so much for your kind support. 

Now we appeal that you support our project with a recurring donation. From September 21st to 25th, Global Giving is offering a one time 100% match for all new recurring donations upto $200 per donor. To qualify for the match, the donors must give the recurring donation atleast for four consecutive months. Hence your donation will have a double effect. Besides this, it will assure the future of the children we take care.  

Kindly spread words about this project to your friends and relatives, who are like minded. Your words carry weight and hence the children get supported more. 

Thank you once again for your continued support
