Dear friends,

Thank you very much for your support to our efforts to provide health and nutritious food to children of Sphoorti. Through your support to this project, Sphoorti has been able to provide good breakfast to each of our children for the last several months.

As you understand, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If quality breakfast is not provided, the children feel lethargic and tired find it difficult concentrating on classwork and may lead to behaviour difficulties in the school environment. 

A good breakfast not only provides important nutrients, but also helps improve school performance, allowing students to do better in classroom activities and examinations. 

Your generosity has helped our children enhance their academic performance and participation in extra-curricular activities.

Let us share with you, the story of CK who comes from a tiny village in MahboobNagar district.

His father died 8 years ago. His mother works as in a house-keeping company in Hyderabad. CK’s younger brother

As a child, CK went through lot of hardship as he lost his father and his mother was not able to work for a long time. Looking at her plight, the local village Head brought them to Sphoorti in 2010.  He is in STD IX now and one of the most studious.

The Change 

When CK joined Sphoorti, he was poor in English and Telugu and was speaking his native tribal language most of the time. Because of this, he was feeling isolated from the rest of the inmates. His nutrition level was also below par.

With your help, we have been providing good food to children like CK.

One he started attending regular school, his interest in academics and co-curricular activities increased. He has been winning prizes in school every year for the last 4 years.

He scored 9.2 in his recent Annual Examinations. He won the First prize in Science Fair conducted by a local Engineering College.  

With your support, more children like CK can carve out their destinies. And, there are more CKs who need a helping hand.

Dear friends,
Thank you very much for your support to our children for the last several months. Your generosity helps us create a great impact on the lives of children who would have otherwise been seeped in poverty and ignorance. 
We wish to share the story of one of the most promising children of Sphoorti - Ch. Ch is 19 years old boy who comes from a family where parents are illiterate and father is mentally unstable to take care of the family. The family belongs to Guntur. Ch joined Sphoorti in 2006 after one of our donors found out about the family situation. 
Ch was one of the first few children of Sphoorti. Prior to joining Sphoorti, he was in a local Government run hostel which was in a bad shape and education was not given any kind of importance. 
Ch studied until STD X in a local High School and went on to pursue STD XI and STD XII in a local Junior College. He secured 89% in his STD XII and by virtue of his academic record, he got admission in Bhavan's Degree College, one of the premier colleges in Hyderabad. He is pursuing Undergrad in Math, Statistics and Computer Science.
Through your support, we decided to send him to the college even though the college fee was about $500 p.a. Because of exposure to quality infrastructure, teachers and students from various backgrounds and social strata, Chaitanya has gained a lot of confidence and improved his social/soft skills. Together with good academic record and behavioral traits, we hope that he will succeed in whatever career he wishes to pursue. 
He is also a part of National Cadet Corps (NCC), the Indian Military Cadet Corps open to College students. He is currently one of the toppers in his class. Chaitanya wishes to enter Navy after his Undergrad. He is currently attending prerp classes for Navy Entrance examination.

Dear friends,

With the help of your donations, we have been able to provide shoes to more than 300 children in the last academic year in the Government High School, Gowdavally. The school's stature has increased in the eyes of the Provincial Education Department as well as the local community. The school has witnessed a lot of change in terms of the attendance of the children, their participation in classroom activities and discipline.

We take this opportunity to share with you a story of change. 

If a child is robbed off basic needs like food, shelter and education in his / her childhood, adolescence becomes traumatic. To top it, if there are domestic disturbances, a child’s growth is stunted. Tharun’s parents are so poor that they had to stop studies of one of their elder children. This case study is about Th who was born into a very poor family. 

Th’s (14) family hails from a Tribal Tanda from a district in Telangana. Being from tribal background, the family is very poor and most of the family members have never been to school ever. Tharun is the first generation school goer in his community. Th’s parents are causal labourers with measly salaries to support their wards. They have three children in all – two boys and one girl. The elder boy had to stop studies after STD X while the girl is in high school. Th is the youngest in the household. 

Th is 14 years old and in STD X. 

With the help of your support, there have been visible changes in the lives of students in the Government High School, Gowdavally.

Th’s relatives somehow helped him scrape through until STD X but further support was beyond their means It would be a tragedy if Tharun dropped out of school without completing STD X. He would miss out on so many career opportunities. Realizing this, his parents approached us for sponsorship of his studies in STD X. 

Through your support, we are able to send him to school for this year. Th has been able to concentrate on his studies without the fear of his schooling getting a hit. He has been going to school regularly, scoring more than 7.5/10.0 GPA on his tests as well as participating in various co-curricular activities like Karate, Football. He also participated in his school’s Annual Day celebrations.. His parents are now relieved that Th can pursue higher studies. 

Th wants to be an IPS officer when he grows up. Th is among the brightest children in the current STD X batch. 

Support from our benefactors like you has saved a student’s career from getting destroyed before taking-off. Given the environment Th belongs to, it’s possible that he might have ended as a highly irresponsible child and a menace to society. We also thank GlobalGiving for giving us this Global Platform.

Over the last seven years, the collaboration of our donors, well-wishers and other stake-holders has helped us provide a safe and secure childhood with facilities children rightly deserve. Through your support, we can help more children like Th to participate in nation-building.
