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

Thank you donors for supporting us

Dear Donors,

The new academic year 2015-16 is started and the children are happily going to school from the home "Poonjolai". During the last quarter, the children were busy preparing for their exams. Thank you for helping them to have a ventilated, lighted space for study. "We thank you for helping us to buy an invertor. With the frequent power cuts we have, it is very difficult for us to study and prepare for the exams. The invertor is helping us to have power in the times of power cuts and study without interruption. I thank you very much donors, on behalf of my brothers and sisters in the home, for the donations you gave for buying this. Without this I could not have scored 80% marks in the tenth common examination. Now I am admitted to the Science group and I aspire to become a nurse", says Rani(name changed). 

A small generous contribution from your side can help us support children like Rani. The organisation is still having debts. If you can help us repay these loans, it will help us to reduce our burden and in keeping up our credibility with those who believed us and lent money for building the home. 

Kindly spread words to people who are like minded and help us repay the loans.

Thank you once again for being with us.

With regards

Lifers to take up public service activities

Dear Donors, 
Ram (name changed) was one of the benefeciaries of the two-wheeler/automobile mechanism training conducted by New Life. At first, he was hesitant to join when called for the training.  When we met him after the training, Ram said, "Thank you for showing me a new way. When I was locked up in the jail, I was much worried about my two children and my wife. Now, I got confidence that I can lead a decent living once I get out of these walls."
The inmates not only gained technical skills but also a new strength to cope up with the world, thanks to the counselling given to them. We thank you donors for making this happen. 
Efforts are made by the Prison Department to direct the lifers with good conduct in a constructive way. And we have joined hands with them in this effort. Embarking on such rehabilitative acts would provide a healthy diversion for the inmates. The objective is to bring about a change in their mind set . Prison bazaars are also being run to sell the products made by the prisoners in both Male and Female Prison. Hence the trained prisoners can sell the goods produced by them. The money earned can be used in starting up their small ventures once they go out. 
A small contribution from your side will help us imparting skills to the prisoners, which will rehabilitate them and in the longer run, pave the way to a crime free society. 
Spread  the word to your friends and relatives to make a change.
With regards
