Celebrating in this time

The children have more company than most of us have in these ‘Covid’ times. Studies and play is on track as usual. The children are doing fine and are in good health and spirit. We are making sure that they are safe and we are monitoring their health on a regular basis. Sanju,Erline,Jilani,Sukra and Sujit had their birthdays celebrated. The children participated in the Republic Day Ceremony which is held outside our training building every year on the 26th of January. Holi was celebrated with a lot of colors and a bonfire was lit. Please see the smiling faces in the photos and we know that there is something to cheer about in these trying times. Thanks for all your support!

SANTI identified 315 Child Laborers in local area

Happy New Year !  

In SANTI we are proud to complete 2019 and preparing for 2020 training programs.

  • SANTI students put a stall in Lions Club Puja Festival and sold soft toys and garments worth INR 4000. These are the students learning how to make soft toys and sewing/alteration and will be able to self sustain in future. As we have seen many examples in the past. 
  • SANTI did a survey to identify local child laborers who are working in local businesses. We have identified 315 children aged from 9 to 14 years old who are working as child laborers. This survey helped us to evaluate the need for this area. 
  • In 2020 we will plan to provide educational programs to streamline them towards their skills development and training.  

We need your help so please keep continuing your support and have a great year ahead.  

Thank you
