Sriram, will he get your support?!

Sriram
Sriram

Sriram is a thirteen year old boy studying 8th standard. He was admitted in the home Poonjolai this year with his brother.

Sriram's father Kalaivanan desserted his wife Dhanalakshmi and the family before 4 years. He married another woman.Since their marriage is a love marriage neither the in-laws nor the parents supported Dhanalakshmi after Kalaivanan desserted his family.  

Sriram's sister Shobika is studying in 10th standard. His brother Rahul is in 7th standard. Dhanalakshmi does all types of coolie work. She earns Rs.3000/- i.e $50 aproximately per month and out of this she has to give as rent Rs.1000/- i.e $17 for the single room they live in. She found it difficult to educate her three children. It was then she came to know about our home from one of our special school teacher in Musiri and approached the organisation to admit her sons in the home. After verifying the details given by her and finding that the children are eligible, they were admitted to our home. 

Sriram is a good speaker and won many prizes for his speech in the school level competitions. He is also good in essay writing. Besides this he is good in sports too. And he had received many prizes for taking part in sports. Of course he is an average student. But that does not matter, isn't it? 

After being admitted to the near by school, Sriram is selected as a team member of foot ball and long jump. Thanks to the school for recognising his talents within a month's time. We are happy to support this talented boy and sure that you, our dear donors, will also be happy to support children like Sriram. 

During the last quarter, we received $51 towards this project. And this amount is very meagre to meet out our monthly expenses. We request you dear donors, to support the children generously. As this is the beginning of the academic year, we need your donations desperately to meet out the children's education expenses. Kindly spread words about your favorite project to your friends and relatives who are like minded. Your words carry weight.

We thank you once again for continuously supporting us and being with us in this project.

With regards

Children with volunteers/donors & senior citizens
Children with volunteers/donors & senior citizens

On the Christmas Eve, the student volunteers who are also the donors took our children to a senior citizen home. There the three generations celebrated the Christmas. The children were very happy to spend a day with the elders and the youth. They gave cultural events, participated in games, partied and returned home joyfully. 

On March 24th, the birthday of Britto, one of the children in home was celebrated by a team of young donors in our home. 

During the last three months (Dec2014- Feb2015) we received a donation of $366. Out of this $146 is used to buy a water heater for the children. The scanned copy of the bill is attached. The remaining amount is paid to the loan creditors. There is still a balance of $20210. This can be settled only with the generous donations from you people. We are also taking efforts mobilise donations from the local community and we want to settle the loans at the earliest.

For this we depend on people like you who have been continuously supporting us not only financially but also morally. We request you to kindly spread words about our work to your friends and relatives. 

Thanking you once again.

We need your support

Viji (name changed) is in Women's Special Prison, Trichy.  She is life sentenced as she murdered her husband.

Yes, Viji killed her husband! Viji entered her husband's home with lots of dreams after marriage. But she was beaten by her drunkurd husband everyday. He used abusive words. She was blaming her destiny and was distressed. When she could not drag on anymore she went to her brothers and complained about the brutality of her husband. Her brothers got angry and fought with her husband. The husband abused her brothers too and Viji was much annoyed. She lost her control and beat her husband. In her outrage she killed him and realised that only after some time. She got arrested, life sentenced and spending her youth in prison. Anger in that spur of the moment spoiled her entire life. 

New Life trained Viji in tailoring and she could stich blouses and skirts now. She now has the confidence that she can earn her living once she goes out.

Women like Viji, who commit crimes on the spur of a moment or for safeguarding themselves or because of poverty are spending their time aimlessly inside the prison. The trainings given by New Life for developing their skills motivate them, give them hope and once they go out they get integrated with the community.

We thank you dear donors for helping these women to lead a normal life once they get out of the prison. The trainings you support increase their skill and confidence, the counselling given by the staff help them to face the community with courage. All this is possible only because of the continued support you give and we request you to spread words about this project to your dear and near ones.

With thanks and regards
