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.

Update 2

A with new shoes
A with new shoes

Your support to our camapign for providing shoes to Sphoorti. A simple act of giving a pair of shoes to a child who never wore footwear all his/her life makes a world of difference.

To give you an example, let us take the example of a boy A who hails from a very poor family in a village outside Hyderabad. 

He never wore a pair of shoes until recently when he was gifted a pair of shoes by Sphoorti Foundation through your support. 

A's mother passed away when he was very young. His father was illiterate and worked as an unskilled worker in a local construction firm. His innocence was manipulated by all his employers and he gave up on any progress in his life. In desperation, he sent A to one of his distant relatives. Through some of our volunteers, A was sent to Sphoorti last year. 

Recently, he was gifted a pair of shoes. It has vastly improved his confidence. He now realizes that he is cared for and is an important part of society. 

Sphoorti is your platform to change lives of more children like A through simple acts like donating a pair of clothes, a pair of shoes, a school bag or even a couple of notebooks. Help us build future for our world.
