Sharuk (name changed) was a construction labourer. He was forced to go to work leaving his primary education as his father fell sick and could not earn. Being the first son, he took over his father's role and started earning. Later he was identified by the special school teacher of New Life. She counselled and convinced Sharuk and his family to continue his education.  He joined the child labour special school and admitted to regular school in the 6th standard. 

Sharuk is a good student. He scored 81% in the 10th public exam and was selected to get education support from New Life. He scored 62% in his higher secondary education and got admission for doing Undergraduate in Commerce. 

"Thanks to New Life and donors who support me for studying. I am getting the education support for the fourth year, which motivates me to continue my studies. Many girls and boys in my village are also getting support. Thank you," says Sharuk. When asked what is his aim in life, he says with determination, "I want to become a soldier". 

Dear Donors, kindly continue to support us in helping children like Sharuk to continue their studies. Only with your support, their dreams are coming true. Make their world brighter by spreading words about the project to your friends and relatives. 

Thank you once again for your support.

Vikas hates his DAD!

Vikas (name changed) hates his dad. And he does not prefer to talk about his father to any one. Wondering why? 

It is a sad story. Vikas's mother died a year ago. She was beaten up and killed by her husband. Yes, Vikas's father killed his mother because of his doubting nature. He was imprisoned  but somehow managed to come out of the prison. Vikas and his 2 siblings are now brought up by his grandparents. His grandfather works as a peon in a company.  

This is the reason for Vikas's hatred. After this sad incident, Vikas and his sibliings were much upset. Their studies were affected. So they were admitted to the New Life's coaching center in Kodappu. The coaching class teacher gave special attention to the kids. They were counselled by the New Life staff. They are slowly  recovering from the shock they met with. Vikas is a bold boy and has recovered quickly.

Vikas is a good student. He is good in Tamil and Science.  He scores good marks in his class. He writes poems in Tamil and his writing skills are really good. 

Our team took Vikas to Nagamangalam skill training centre. The Independence day was celebrated there and Vikas read his wonderful poem on "Mother" and about country. It was appreciated by all the elders. Vikas is an inspiration to all the adolescents there and in his coaching class. 

Kids like Vikas were coached in our coaching center. Students like Vikas were also counselled and guided. All this is possible only with the support from you dear donors. Kindly keep supporting New Life by also spreading words about the project to your friends and relatives. Your words carry weight and we can support more children like Vikas only with your support. 

Thanking you

Reach out to children like Prakash!

June marks the beginning of a new year to our early learning centre like any other academic institutions. While we have new entrants like Prakash (name changed), we had to part with a few darling children who are grown up now to go to regular school.

Prakash is 2 years old and he has a dashing smile and bright, sparkling eyes. His father is a painter. He spends a major portion of his income on drinking. His mother wants to earn to take care of Prakash and his elder sister. So she is now learning to stitch clothes. Se says, "Thanks to New Life's centre for taking care of my child, unless which I could not attend the training class. Also, the staff guide me in inculcating good habits in my child."

Prakash is of normal weight but he is lacking in speech and in toilet habits. He pees where he is. Hence the teacher takes additional care in training him in speech and toilet habits. His mother is given tips to train him at home. We are sure within March 2020 he will be able to speak better and will adhere to the toilet habits.

Children like Prakash, whose mothers could not afford to take care of their kids, are cared for in New Life's early learning centre. All this is possible only with the support from you dear donors. Kindly keep supporting us. We need more funds to pay for the meals, salary and rent of the centre.  So, please do spread words about your favourite project to your friends and relatives. Your words carry weight. 

Thank you once again.
