Children's Day Celebration with SANTI

Friends, wish you will have great fun in upcoming thanksgiving holiday time.

This is a best time to provide reporting about how our 25 children doing in SANTI home. 

  • I wish all of our 25 children to be successful in life as well as in education. They go to local public school and compete with other students. This is a better way to compare how our children are performing.
  • As mentioned in previous reports we have a few very successful and topper students from SANTI. We are proud of them and wish to have more students like that.
  • Few others were struggling in their school, so recently we hired an experienced teacher. He is great at providing homework to be completed by each student and then verifying their work. We hope this will help to train each child and evaluate ways to improve them.
  • Our wardens maintain a daily schedule that children follows. We are in the process to teach a disciplined life to our children. In the morning they do the homework from the Private teacher or school and the go to school. After school, they play and then in the evening get tutoring help.
  • On Children’s day SANTI students performed a group dance and a solo performance.  

We are successful in operation due to your continued support. Please donate in this holiday period so that we can help better to these children.

Thanks

Towards self sustainability

Hello Friends,

Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend. This day honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of the country.

In India child labor is a complex issue and we have taken the initiative to find a better solution. We are moving forward to provide special classes of respective grades to the youth and also we are focusing to teach sewing skills to make them self-sustained.

In last two reports I highlighted the turning point story of Sabita and how we changed Nelan’s life. Both of them are doing great in developing their skills and learning in school. They are grateful to SANTI as they were provided a great platform to be successful.

We are making sure that they improve their sewing skills. They have proven that the local people like their product but I would say there is room for improvement. We are sharpening their skills in such a way that in future they can start their own shop or a venue. None the less now they are earning about INR 5000 per month by sewing work through SANTI.

We have two challenges –

  • We need to buy some more machines, so that we can start adding more students to the team and we need your support.
  • We need at least one embroidery machine which is kind of expensive, but that will help us to stand out in local market.

Please cheer up to celebrate the success of Nelan and Sabita and come forward to donate so that we can bring more success stories to you.

It is possible just because of you.

Thanks

Ashok

Winning on Independence Day

Hello Friends, hope you thoroughly celebrated India Independence day.

SANTI children had a great time during 15th August celebration.

  • During the celebration, Artilo won best singer award in school, currently studying in 3rd grade and hopeful to sing better in future.
  • Also three children won various prizes in games in Independence day meet. Albina and Pami both won 100 m run, Susanti won in a local game called Puchi.

Looking forward I am positive that our children will form an ecosystem with education, athletic and arts in a harmony.    

  • Our children are consistently performing really well in games and physical activities. I wish few of them can play in interschool or district level in future.
  • Thinking about education, in past we felt not all children are doing well. So we recruited an experienced teacher. She was great at teaching fundamentals and understand the weakness of the children. In past few months, we realized the improvement and particularly one of the child Subha improved a lot. She earns the best student award in 2nd grade. This is remarkable and a confidence booster.
  • I am hopeful that we can bring all children to perform at their best level in school.

We will need your support and help to bring the best out of SANTI children.

Thanks
