Without you, I would have lost my future!

Dear Donors,

May the year 2020 brings with it all the choicest blessings to you!

"I want to become a teacher and help those children, especially girls who could not study due to their poverty like me", says Roja (name changed). She continues, "I would have lost my future rearing goats unless New Life had supported me. I thank New Life and all those donors out there who have helped me to continue my studies".

Roja's parents are working as daily wage earners and their yearly income is $600 (approximately). They have two sons and one daughter, Roja. Their poor income is insufficient to meet out the food expenses. How could they spend for the education of their children? Hence they decided to stop Roja's studies and sent her to rear goats.

The New Life team in Kodiyampalayam found out Roja and talked with her. They rekindled her interest in studies, convinced her parents to send Roja to the special school for child labour. Roja is good enough to join 5th standard in the regular school after one year of coaching in the special school. 

Roja scored good marks (70%) in 10th standard Government exam, applied for financial support from New Life. She was selected for support and is now doing her 12th standard. She is preparing well for the final year of school exams. We are sure she will score well and achieve her dream of becoming a teacher and helping many poor students like her. 

Thank you, dear donors, for supporting girl children like Roja to fulfil their dreams. Without your support, New Life could not have continued supporting these children. Kindly keep helping children like Roja. Boost us by spreading the message about this aspiring kids and their dreams to your friends and relatives. Your words mean a lot to us.

Thanking you once again on behalf of our team and our lovely children.

With regards

Will you help her learn her passion?

Piya studying in front of her home
Piya studying in front of her home

You will be moved to see Piya sitting in front of her tiny home and studying. Piya and her sister are living in this small hut with their mother. Her father cheated their mother, deserted the family and is living with another woman. Piya is 14 years old and is studying in 8th standard. 

Piya's mother is working as a cleaner in a nursing home and is earning $50 per month. The family owns the hut and the children are having one time meals in their school. The income is very low to take care of two girl children. Piya's aunty is supporting the family and hence her mother can manage. 

Piya is admitted to our coaching class in the year 2012. When she joined our coaching class she was scoring 61% of marks in the exams. Piya is a good student but her circumstances made her to concentrate less on her studies. Once she joined New Life's coaching class her scores improved. She is scoring 75% now.

You would be excited to hear what Piya says when asked: "What do you want to become?" She says, 'I love dancing and love to teach dance to my friends. I have choreographed dances for our New Life and coaching class functions and would love to do more. I want to master in dancing and become a dance teacher." 

We wish to see this poor girl to continue her school education and continue to pursue her passion. To complete her education she needs to be supported. This is possible only with the support you give to our coaching class. Many such children like Piya can make their dreams a reality only with the support you give to continue their studies.

We thank you donors, for being with us all these days and help these poor children study in spite of their difficult circumstances. Kindly keep spreading the message to your friends and relatives and help us continue our projects. You can reach us at www.newlifemfi.org

Thank you once again.

Will her father accept her?

Mittu now
Mittu now

"I don't want to see her," was Mittu's (name changed) father's reaction when he was told that his wife delivered a girl baby. Mittu's parents loved each other, got married opposing their parents. Mittu's father is a cook in a hotel. He wanted to have a son and when Mittu was born, he started hating her just because she is a girl. 

Mittu's mother is the only source of love for Mittu. She tried to convince her husband to accept Mittu, all in vain. Mittu was then exposed to the love of New Life's early learning centre staff. When she joined the centre in Sep 2018 she was dull and her weight was 7 Kg. She will cringe when approached by anyone other than her mother.

Now after the continued efforts and care by the early learning centre staff Mittu is friendly. She has gained weight by 2 Kgs. And is active now. The happy thing you would love to know is that now she is grabbing her father's attention. Hopefully their relationship will become better soon.

Many Mittus who are longing for love and affection and quality care are being admitted to New Life's early learning centre. The centre is functioning with the valuable donations you make. The children are taught the basic education, provided with a meal and a change of dress at least once a year.   

During Diwali (in the month of October), a local donor Mrs Meera donated dresses for the children. The Diwali function in Kajapet was celebrated by giving the new dresses. Sweets were given to the children which were sponsored by two local donors Mrs Vanaja and Mrs Vijayalakshmi. Mrs Sharmila, one of the well-wisher and supporter of New Life, mobilised 28 Kg of clothes from London and these clothes were distributed to the poor children. The Diwali celebrations in Kajapet was a heartwarming one for all those who visited our children on that day. 

The children in our early learning centre could be taken good care only with the generous support from donors like you and the above dears. We are in short of funds (approximately $200 per month) to pay the monthly expenses. Kindly keep supporting these children to achieve their age-appropriate milestones. Also share words about the project and the wonderful children it supports, to your like-minded friends and relatives.   

With thanks and warm regards
