She longs for love and affection

Latha in home
Latha in home

Dear Donors,

Latha is the child of a young desserted mother Shaila (names changed). Her mother gave birth to her and Latha's father desserted Latha nad her mother. Then she lived with another man who gave birth to another girl child. After the birth of the second child, that man too desserted Shaila. Shaila, in her longing for love and affection fell prey to another man. The story repeated; another girl child is born and this man also desserted Shaila.

Shaila found it very difficult to raise the small kids who are 4.5 years, 3.5 years and just born. She could not go to work as she delivered the baby within a month. In this stage, we came to know about her through a staff nurse who is working in the hospital where she delivered the baby. The nurse who knows about the work of New Life and it's home for the children for quite some years called for supporting the poor children. New Life's staff visited the home of Latha and her sister Sita (name changed).  The house they were staying is very much damaged, not at all safe for three small children and the children were looking very pathetic. They were surviving on the porridge provided by the nearby Government creche. And in the nights mostly they sleep without food. On seeing the drastic condition, the first two children were admitted to our home immediately in the month of August.

Now Latha and Sita are in our home. Latha is healthy while Sita is a weak child. Latha is admitted to the nearby primary school. All these incidents affected Latha. It made her a child in a difficult circumstance. She longs for love and affection but she could not express that. So she is separating herself from the other children in our home. She likes to spend her time alone. We are sure that with the love and affection she gets at home, she will soon mingle with the other children and will be happy. Sita frequently has health problems and she is given special medical care. We hope she becomes a healthy child soon.

Many other children like Latha are longing for care, love and affection. They should not be vulnerable to dangers of abuse. Safeguarding them from abuse is possible only with the generous donations you give dear donors. We thank you for helping us to nurture these poor children who would otherwise be wandering in the streets,with irresponsible parents like Shaila and her companions.

Kindly keep supporting our cause and thus these poor, deprived children. Tell your friends and relatives with similar minds to help the poor children about the project. Our children grow because of your generous support and they are thankful to you dear donors.

Thanking you.

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
