Dear friends,

Thank you for supporting our initiative to provide enough food to our160 children in Dundigal campus.

Through this project, we are now able to provide not only regular food but also provide fruits and health drinks like Boost and Horlicks to our children. 

The project has helped us initiaite a healthy diet regime suggested by qualified dietitians and follow up with regular health camps to assess the impact of the program.

Through proper health and well-being, we are able to provide all our children a great opportunity to pursue their studies with and complete primary and secondary levels of education and transform from being undernourished to healthy adolescents and adults.

The demand for our services continues to be strong often exceeding our capacities. Nevertheless, we have been able to mainstream orphan and destitute children into able community members because of the efforts of people like you.

Once again, thank you so much for your support. We look forward to your continued patronage and blessings for our children. Together, we understand that an investment in the lives of children is a wise investment in our collective future.

Children have healthy and tasty food

Final Update

The girl R lost her father and mother barely manages to earn enough for herself. Seeing her plight, Sphoorti Foundation brought the child to the premises.

 *The Change 

 The girl R had very poor nutrition levels, absolutely no hygiene and serious behavioral issues. She had untidy hair, skin infections and dental health was abysmal.

After two weeks of improving her health and appearance, we sent her to school in July 2014. She interacts well with her classmates in school and Sphoorti inmates of all ages.

We are sending her to a private school (English medium) and providing quality education. In addition, we are providing tuition support and counseling sessions for R and a few other children.  This has been possible through the largesse of donors like Microsoft and conscious efforts of our staff members, volunteers and school teachers.

R says that she likes her Math teacher and wants to become a teacher when she grows up.

*The Conclusion

 The story of R has been from that of a destitute child transforming to a healthy and confident young student.

Her case study is a demonstration that sincere efforts directed towards child welfare will yield good results. From an impoverished child, R is looking forward to active participation in mainstream society.

With such approach, we can hone more children from destitute backgrounds into assets of the nation. Inspiring stories like these will provide inspiration to more children.

The Board and Staff of Sphoorti have more confidence and motivation to churn out more such success stories.

We take this opportunity to tell you the story of a girl in distress who was saved through your support.

This case study is about B who lost her parents in quick succession and was sent to Sphoorti four years ago. Her story is very inspiring for people who get depressed over small matters in life.

*Introduction

 B (14) hails from Kadapa district, Andhra Pradesh. She lost her father in 2011 and her mother in 2012. She was brought to Sphoorti 15 days after the death of her mother. B came to Sphoorti in 2012. She was born in Jan 2001.  She is in STD X this year.

 

*The Change 

 When B joined Sphoorti, her life was in disarray. Immediately after her mother’s death, she was brought to Sphoorti. We had to give her a lot of counseling to come out of the situation. For a few months, the staff members took care of her treating her as their own child.

After she started going to school, she started feeling better. Another reason for her to rejoice was that she was attending government school earlier. After coming to Sphoorti, she was attending an English private school. With every passing month, she gained self-confidence and has developed interest in studies. She also participates in dance and singing activities in school and at Sphoorti.

 

*The Conclusion

 Bhargavi’s progress provides an example that through proper motivation and mental conditioning, children can cope with any distressing conditions. Though she lost her parents in quick succession, Bhargavi has been able to come out of it and get back to studies.

This is the real impact of the contribution from people like you. There are more Bhargavi’s waiting for your helping hand.
