Thanks to you!

Your willingness to help children in our community will make a difference in their lives.

Many children grow up with their parents working in neighbourhood towns. This involuntary migration is sought in most of the rural areas with the aim to escape from unemployment, social discrimination and disaster. These ‘home alone’ children are left without attention, become early drop outs from school, more likely to be depressed and often suffer from health problems.  As they are neglected by their parents, they lack proper food, education, and care, sexual abuse, etc.

Our main aim is to provide such children a secured future and help them with their denied rights – food, safety & education. The programme has been shown to raise children’s achievement in a significant and sustained manner and to improve relationships between children and parents.  Towards this end, monetary support will be extended to the children till they reach their high school, who in turn will utilize the amount for nutritional, educational, medical & toiletry expenses.

This report summarizes the activities reached out during the quarter. Our residential home had catered to 33 children's needs during the previous year. From this list of 33, we had narrowed down the criteria to the most deserving children who are in need of our immediate support. In line to this, the first move in the programme was confirmation of beneficiary list. The identified target was called for a general orientation on the programme and its activities. The orientation programme held counseling and vocational guidance for the children to be closer to their family, have a warm feeling, and create a friendlier environment. Parents were educated on various Govt. schemes that are available in health, education, employment and social security. 

Children were insisted on opening joint bank accounts to help them receive uninterrupted financial support. This support will help them continue their schooling without any difficulties and place them on a much comfortable mind set.

Again, thank you for all you do for our kids. You are a part of their lives too.

Thank you donors for all your support!

We extend our sincere thanks to all our donors for their recent donations to Society for Poor People Development (SPPD), Trichy. Your interest in helping out our children will now place them in a better position to face the future ahead.

Thanks to your donations, our programme is going very well and our students are making good progress. The kitchen garden maintained by them has yielded good harvest. During this quarter, the Children’s home Caretaker had to spend extra time in coaching the children with their annual exam preparations to be held in April 2014. They have successfully completed their exams and are now on their vacation leave. We expect all of them to move on to their next grade level. However, three of our students who had appeared for the Government Board examinations have secured good marks. They were provided with special training in vocational skill training.

In continuation to the visit of Mr. Peter Lahiff from Language in Group, Ireland in Jan. 2014 who was present at our Community Centre for a month to assess the work on the development of the English programme reached out to our home students for the past five years we had received the following assessment report from him. The assessment report narrates that “This communicative English Programme was a successful implementation carried out for the children at SPPD Children’s Home. Children should first realize the varied difference in the language when it comes to the point of subject learning and communication. The student’s contribution towards this concept has created much improvement in their communication skills and school performance”.

A special word of thanks to Mr.Senthilnathan Natarajan, Rajkumar A, Sridhar Janakiraman, Janakiraman Manoharan, Uma Maheshwari, Senthilkumar Ganeshan, Arul Prakash Mani, Dhivahar Murugaesan, Guruprakash Gurusamy, Neil Murphy, Arpit.Katariya, Rajkumar Karuppiah Rajan (donors of this quarter) who have contributed generously towards this good cause.

With your help, the best is yet to come!

Your contribution to our project through GlobalGiving has a huge impact on the educational support for the rural children of our locality at large. We see this as a new beginning and believe more progress is possible which upshots a future full of promise and hope.

We take this wonderful opportunity to sincerely thank you for your continued support in this project (Educating for 100 poor rural children in India). Your kindness and generosity has enabled to reach out to the students who are in need of our help.

Out of the 20 girls who were enrolled to the Nursing Aide Course in Medical & Nursing Sector 19 of them appeared for the assessment exams and have successfully cleared their papers. Certificates were awarded to these students and at present they are placed at various hospitals for their on-the-job-training.

The second batch of 20 students was enrolled to the Basis of Anatomy Course. The course went off successfully as per the scheduled syllabus. On the course completion, they appeared for the assessment on 28th May 2014, results of which are much awaited.  

A special word of thanks to our donors Ms.Lynette Pittman, Therese Horsfield, Mr.Venkatesan Venugopal and Christopher Godden who had contributed to this cause during this quarter.

It’s only through your continued support you can help us reach our goal. We will come up with more updates on the project and the beneficiaries soon.
