Another Academic year 2018-19 comes to an end

Changing Anuradha
Changing Anuradha's life

Anuradha (name changed) is studying in 7th standard at the Government Tamil Higher Primary School lives with her two sisters and parents.  Her two sisters are studying in the same school in 4th and 6th std. respectively. Her father is a house painter and mother is working as a helper in the same school. Her father is an alcoholic and mother is struggling to raise three daughters. Being an elder daughter of an illiterate parents Anuradha is self-motivated learner and is very clever and very good in her studies. She wants to become a doctor. She likes Tamil and English language. She likes to play and draw in her leisure time. She behaves very well with her teachers and friends. she is very regular to school, attentive in her studies and wants to continue her education.

The year has come to an end  and all the children will go to the next class in the new academic year which starts in June 2019. We continuously conduct various extracurricular programs and provide food in the school to motivate them to come to school regularly. And hence we do the following:

  1.  Make a daily protein mix which has all the vital nutrients and vitamins that the growing children need, as most of the children come to school without having breakfast. We have measured the height and weight of all the children this year to assess and analyse the impact of nutritious protein powder. In this year we have started giving them biscuits with the protein mix.
  2. Celebrated birthdays of the children at the end of each month. The children cut a huge cake in front of their friends, school teachers and eat it in school along with potato chips. Well qualified yoga professionals of Sri Krishna Wellness, Yoga and Cultural Centre conduct classes to improve overall health and their concentration power. Our regular volunteers’ conduct Elementary English reading, writing and spoken classes for all the children.
  3. Conducted students’ assessments at the end of the academic year to find out their progress.
  4. We along with a very dedicated group of volunteers from a company Faurecia participated in the Saraswathi puja celebrations.
  5. Graduating class of this year was given a send off with food and 1kg cake
  6. We will organize summer classes for children to teach and engage them in activities during the summer holidays. Summer classes help the children to develop skills while experiencing a new and exciting learning environment.

We appeal for more funds through global giving, to help Anuradha and children like her so that the poverty-stricken parents and their underprivileged children are attracted by the facilities and amenities of the school and come back to school regularly.

Now her mother is under medication and the family is spending money for the treatment. Against all odds she is very regular to school,doing well in her studies and wants to continue her education. Ananya’s ambition is to become a teacher or lawyer.

We continuously conduct various extracurricular programs and provide food in the school to motivate them to come to school regularly. And hence we do the following:

In this year we have started giving them biscuits with the protein mix.

• Distributed morning snacks to the children to encourage them to come to school on every Saturday.

• Organized special winter classes for all the children during winter vacation. We have arranged the transportation to bring the children from their school. Children enjoyed learning new techniques of Maths, drawing classes and Eddytablet (kids learning tablet) classes. We have provided lunch to all the children whoever attended the winter classes.

• Conducted students’ assessments during beginning and end of the academic year to find out their progress.

• Celebrated Christmas at Tamil Government School for the children of both the Government Schools. The volunteers had planned the occasion to the last detail. To celebrate the spirit of the season, fun filled activities had been arranged for the children at both venues. Santa Claus distributed Christmas cake, gifts and goodies. Christmas Carols were sung and the children were showered with candy.

Many thanks for making 2018 memorable for the children. Let’s welcome 2019 to help Ananya and children like her so that we can bring smiles to their faces . Let’s unite to dream big for the underprivileged children and attract their parents by the facilities and amenities of the school and to send the children to school regularly.

New Year 2019! Another chance to change lives.

Greetings from Ashwini Charitbable Trust!

It's New year again, a wonderful time to make promises, become the reason behind someone’s smile. For 18 years, our New Year resolutions have always been about helping children and dream for them until they become empowered to dream on their own.

It’s the right time to remember the best memories the previous year had gifted and here is the story of a girl who helps us look forward to more new years.

 

Akriti’s(Name changed) father left the family few years back and it is the mother who has been taking care of her as well as her brother all these years. Although the mother has many health issues she goes for work and makes sure that the children are properly fed. ACT has taken up the education of both Akriti and her brother and her mother feels proud to see Akriti doing well. She finished her class 10 last year with 74% marks and is currently in class 11. She is a very good dancer. Akriti serves as a very good example to prove that after all broken families do not create broken people. Some people have the maturity to outgrow any kind of situations.

To help children transform, to make them empowered we have programs all throughout the year.

Every November we celebrate Annual day. This year we celebrated our 18th Annual Day. The children and mothers put up a series of variety entertainment programmes. Some of our outstanding students, mothers and volunteers were recognized on this day.

Christmas at ACT was all about our choir team going to elderly homes and singing for the people there. The children are not only given education, they are taught to carry forward the help they receive to others who are in need.

Thank you so much for helping 2018 memorable for the children. Let’s welcome 2019 as we await for many more smiles. Let’s unite to dream big for the children.
