Thank you friends for your support to our children. Sphoorti now provides comprehensive support to more than 200 children and education support for another 150 children.

We shifted our children to a new campus six months ago and since then, we have been trying our best to provide safe and secure childhood to our kids.

We conducted a Robotics class, Personality Development session as well Legal Awareness Programs for our children in the new campus. We conducted a Pediatric Health Checkup - general, eye and dental for the children

We have recently provided for bunk beds for all our children. For the first time since Sphoorti was established, our children are sleeping on a mattress and bed.

Our children celebrated festivals like Rakshabandhan, Ganesh Chaturthi and Diwali with the usual fervor.

Construction in the top floor has reached final stages of completion. Because of disturbances from local village politicians, there was a temporary delay for three months. After all the rooms are completed, we will have a functional library, a computer lab and a medical room.

The hostel block has been partitioned into separate spaces for boys and girls. There is ample space for children to play in the open. We have planted about 60 saplings along the compound wall.

We are also planning to set up a Reverse Osmosis facility for safer drinking water.

In the next two years, Sphoorti will set up an exclusive campus for boys in a different location.

This year too, Sphoorti has received recognition as Top Rated Nonprofit by Greatnonprofits.org

Thank you for your support to our campus project. 

As you know, we shifted our children a couple of months ago. All the children are doing well in the new campus. We have purchased a school bus and a Van for commuting children between the campus and their schools.

We have 2 families which stay on campus. To give them privacy, we built two staff rooms for them. 

For our children, we arranged Bunk Beds and mattresses with great efforts. In all, we spent $20,000 on bunk beds. It is indeed one of our biggest achievements in terms of arranging facilities for our kids. 

We started construction of the First floor last week and in the next update, we will send you pictures of its completion.

There is a good news to share. We have decided to stop construction in Dundigal campus and cap the number of children in Dundigal at 200. In the due course,

1. We will make Dundigal Campus Girls-only campus with very high level of security - CC Cameras, additional entrances/gates and a ferocious German Shepherd.

2. We will start building a new campus for Boys in a different location. 

We request your support for our continuous endeavour to transform children in need into assets of tomorrow.

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
