Globalgiving Visited SANTI - Top Rank Recognition

Hello Friends,

A big week for us, first we came to know that SANTI is a top ranked charity organization per GlobalGiving. Second, we are honored as GlobalgGving India representative Ms. Kavita visited SANTI last week. She spent time with children and observed the day to day activities. She was pretty impressed with our work and the way we have organized and running the organization. She also met with girls who are learning sewing and are currently earning money for their work.

When I spoke to Ms. Kavita over phone, she seems really excited knowing a lot about SANTI and felt her trip to our organization was rewarding. Please see attached photos of her visit.

SANTI is a registered organization which supports children. As per new rule to us, Govt of India determines the needy children and asks SANTI to support. So this is a different and new way to short list children in need. In this new system, we are going to have 4 more children to support very soon, so we are looking forward to it.

As final exams are coming up, children are focused on studying. We wish them all the best for the exam.

After the exam, we will teach children to dance. Few of them already picked up dance steps from TV and have already performed in school functions. We believe this will be an area where children may show their talent.

We are feeling proud to be a Top Ranked organization per globalgiving and are thankful to you for your continuous support.

Thanks

Boby's Grocery Store- A Success Story

Award Ceremony
Award Ceremony

Hello Friends,

Hope you are doing well and feeling the start of pleasant weather.

We had a great time of appreciation and celebration on International Women’s day 8th March 13, 2016 by SANTI. SANTI and a local cement manufacturing company OCL together organized this event with participation of more than 300 women.    

Boby was awarded as a best member of Women Self-Help Group. She was having a tough time two years ago to support her two daughters, although her husband was working as a tailor. Mr. Pati from SANTI came to know about her situation and suggested to start some business. She asked some monetary help to set up a grocery store in her house. Mr. Pati provided INR 20,000 and she started grocery store. Later Mr. Pati assisted Bobby to obtain a loan of INR 1.2 Lakh from the bank. She was able to run the grocery store and that helps to meet the needs. Her two daughters are currently studying in college and this effort by SANTI helped her to provide education to her daughter. SANTI Stood with her in her difficult time and assisted in making dream comes true. We are proud of Bobby's achievement.

We also awarded following women for outstanding work in past year.

Sabita – Best in Sewing

Lata – Best work in Liploi Mahila Samiti ( a local Women committee)

Anis – Best work under the category of Minority Women Self Help Group

Anita V – Best Volunteer of SANTI Self Help Group

Thanks for your support as we are able to start training following six (6) girls in our new batch. Parbati, Anita T, Bobita, Meena, Suravi and Roshni are in the initial phase of training and will be able to generate some money for their work soon.

Boby’s Grocery store is an inspiration to our community and is an example to many others. 

Please support us to buy equipment for new trainees.

Thanks

We Trained 200 Women to Fight the Disease

Training
Training

Friends,

Wish you are doing well and in good health.

The new building is the only place free to conduct important charitable activities in Rajgangpur suburb areas.

In the slum areas disease and illness are immediate issues. People suffer and die due to sickness and without proper health care. We have realized the need and organized a week long (6 days) campaign and trained 200 women from slum areas. This program is called Mahila Arogya Samiti which focuses on prevention of the disease and taking care of common illnesses. This training is critically needed to educate them about sanitization and other requirements to prevent the disease.

We are proud to be funded by Mr. CDMO (Chief District Medical Officer) to conduct such activities though our Empowerment center or building. We have selected five suburb areas to focus. These 200 trained women will run various health awareness programs. We are committed to mitigate health issues in this locality.

200 women got trained in our partially built house. To run a week long program with so many people we need to finish the building construction. We need at least USD 9, 500 to move forward. Completion of the building will help us to run such programs. This building is pivotal to conduct such great work under one roof.

We need to finish following items

Two side verandahs,

One Side room,

Three Toilets,

Toilet safety tank,

One bore well,

Please support to finish this building so that we can do more such great work already in pipe line.

Thanks for your great help.
