All our donors at the Global Giving,

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 in continuing their education with more elasticity will now place them in a better position to face the future ahead.

Thanks to donors like you, we have provided the children with the educational support. The children are very interested to go to school as most of their school materials are available to them and they move to school without any inferiority complex in their minds. They are also able to complete their homework at ease and hence we hope that we could bring down child drop outs.

We will be very happy to if you could spend your valuable time at our premises and meet some of our children who have benefited through this support.

Meanwhile, we will keep you updated on the children profile and our campaign through our quarterly newsletter and monthly emails.

Again, thank you for all you do for our organization. We, and those we serve, deeply appreciate your generosity.

Thanking you. 



With the generous contribution received through YOU, the children who have benefited under this support have shown commendable progress in the quarterly examinations held during this quarter. They are very excited and keen to have regular attendance at school which obviously marked good results in their academic records.

Birthday celebration
Birthday celebration

 I. Rosaleen Larkin Children’s Home:- 

  • A survey was conducted in and around Thuraiyur block for children who deserve support from us. A careful run through of the students’ case study was carried out. Following which the parents of selected students were called and brief narration was recorded by Mrs.Parimala, Care Giver of Children’s Home. After complete verification, we have admitted 9 new children for our home. Totally there are 33 children i.e. boys 14 and Girls – 19 for the coming academic year.
  • On 13th April, a farewell party was organized to felicitate Mr. David Ferguson, English Tutor from Annalivia School of Languages, Ireland for his English Teaching Service to the children and the staff in SPPD. It was wonderful to have Mr.David with our home children. His passion for teaching has made our young ones develop an interest in the subject. His play way method of teaching has made learning a joy to our kids.
  • Birthdays of our home children R.Nandhakumar, N.Sarathkumar and P.Harishkumar were celebrated. This was the first time in their life they had such celebrations. They were given new clothes and surprise gifts were presented to the birthday babies. A sense of fulfillment was obtained on witnessing the happiness our children shared with us on those occasions. At least, we have made one of their dreams come true.

 II. Evening Study Centre:-

  • We have 21 centers holding a total strength of 640 children in 21 villages. Efficient tutors are appointed to handle these classes. At the centre, they not only complete their homework but also learn life skills, Spoken English, Eco-protection, cultural activities and participate in Sports & Games as well. Awareness on tree planting, cleanliness, good habitual practices, toilet usage, etc. are taught to them. To build up their immunity, we provide them with nutritional support in the form of dates and other fruits.
  • Anti-Child Labour Function:- To necessitate the importance of elimination of child labour, an Anti Child labour function was conducted by our organization, on 25th June 2011. The function was honoured by Mr.R.Navamoorthy, Sub-judge and Secretary of District Legal Services Authority. Tutors from 20 centres, SHG members, children at the home were the participants. He stressed that children have been enrolled mainly in jobs like granite works, Textile companies, hotels, etc. – poverty being the root cause for such malaises. Other child related issues like child trafficking, child marriage and child abuse were also touched upon.
  • Project Visits  :- All the tuition centers were visited by the Programme Coordinator. A list of students who don’t have electricity at home, who don’t wear slippers, etc. was collected. During the visit, feedback from each tutor on previous year’s activities was collected.
  • Stationery Distribution to tutors:- On 18th May, the stationery materials for tutors were distributed by Mr.R.Sasikumar, Programme Coordinator, JHC. This would be helpful for them to run the ESC tuition class without anyproblems.
  • Refresher Training for Tutors:- A refresher training session was organized for all the tutors by Mr.Raju J, Secretary on 18th May 2011. Tutors submitted their feedback of the last academic year’s activities. Suggestions given by the tutors to improve the status of our centers were also appreciable. As new tutors are appointed for the next academic year, the rules and regulations of tutors was also discussed.
  • Health Check Up:- As a follow up of the medical camp held in April, medical prescription of the concerned students given and medicines purchased were distributed. Some of our children had returned with health problems from their vacation leave. They were taken to the hospital and treated.
  • As schools reopened only during mid of June, the study centers started functioning from June 15th 2011. New tutors were recruited for four centers. The club members for Nature club were selected. The rules and regulations for successful execution of activities were discussed.
  • As per the survey and feedback of our tutors, it was analyzed that two centers – Periyavelanganatham and Nachiyampatty need special attention in English classes. Hence a Special Coaching class is to be organized for these two centers.


III. Non Residential Educational Support (NRES):-

  • Through this programme, we offer continuous educational support to very poor, meritorious village students who have passed 8th standard. Every month, we give financial support to those students in order for them to cover school fee, Note books, Uniforms, foot wears, soap, oil, talcum powder etc.
  • Enrollment for 2011-12:- Last year (2010 – 2011) out of 55 students 52 students have passed their annual examinations and three were detained. From these 52 students who have secured a full pass two students have shifted their locality due to personal reasons. Hence only 50 students are selected for the NRES Support – 2011-12.
  • School Visit :-Annual exam results for all the students were collected. Out of 55 students, 52 were promoted and three were detained.
  • Pre-Orientation Programme for Parents and Students:-A pre-orientation programme was organized for the parents and their children (NRES Students) on 21st May 2011. Students and parents were welcome to share their views on the last year’s activities.  After this session, the stationery was distributed to the children by Ms.S.P.Rengalakshmi, Programme Administrator. The Bursary support (note books, pen, pencil, eraser, scale), pass book was distributed to the students. The project coordinator visits the students and monitors the maintenance of the bursary support and pass book by the student

As days are passing by, his grandmother is now having problems in her vision. She approached SPPD to join her grandson in the Evening Study Center. Considering his situation and after cross verification by our staff, he was enrolled in the Centre.
