Extra Assistance at Auxilium school

Dear Supporter,

Due to recent donations and support, we have been able to offer more assistance to Auxillum School in Kochi. Auxilium English Medium School ISCE serves children from KG to 9th standard. 

Whilst primary education is free in India, there simply is not enough space in government schools to provide a decent education for all children. In the extended metropolitan area of Kochi, where we work, the population is 2.3million. It is difficult to work out how many children are in the area, as per the last census in 2011, only children up to the age of 6 were counted. Up to the age of 6 alone, there were 190,000 children in the area. 

However, there are only 34 government schools in the area, meaning there could be over 5,500 students per primary school. As such, many families send their children to private-aided and unaided schools to give them a better quality of education. 

At Auxilium, the school does its hardest to keep school fees as low as possible. They focus on trying to provide better teachers and smaller numbers in the classrooms. This does mean that the school is short of funds to run. As such, recent donations have helped to kit out the school hall to enhance teaching experiences for all years. A projector screen was installed to help the students to study online classes & also make presentations clearly. We also installed a podium and amplifier so the school can host functions and gatherings. This will enhance lessons and presentations done in the hall but also allows the school hall to be booked for external functions to bring in some much needed funds. 

With the left donations, we assisted with tuition fees for 25 children, where it was well known to the school that their parents were finding it very difficult to make both ends meet and may have had to pull their children from the school. It has been a big relief for them that their children will get knowledge without the financial constraints.

None of this could be possible without your support. We are looking to continue offer these tuition fee scholarships as well as more services and features to support local schools in the area trying to offer children a decent education.

Thank you again

Fundraising for the Animals

Dear Supporter,

Like in many countries around the world, the Seychelles suffers from significant numbers of stray cats and dogs that roam the streets with little food to eat and no permanent place to sleep comfortably. They are viewed as pests rather than pets. For many years nothing had been done about this serious problem, and so was created the Seychelles Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA).

The goal of the SSPCA is to prevent cruelty to animals in Seychelles and promote good welfare and responsible animal ownership. The SSPCA is aiming to raise funds for medical treatment, as well as to provide a centre where stray and neglected domestic animals can be treated, cared for and ultimately re-homed. The photo in this report shows a puppy that has been re-homed by the SSPCA. 

For the past 2 years, GVI have been working closely with SSPCA in order to help raise funds for their important and worthwhile efforts. Every 3 months here on Curieuse Island, we organise and take part in fundraising activities to raise as much funds as much as possible for SSPCA.

Earlier this year, the volunteers and staff on GVI Curieuse Island, took part in a wonderfully fun day of fundraising in aid of the great work of the SSPCA, by all participating in ‘Curieuse Island Monopoly’ - a real life version of the board game set on our beautiful tropical island. Volunteers and staff were split into 4 teams and had to compete in tasks, challenges and questions at various locations around the island. They could earn (and lose) cash, properties or move places up the rankings based on how well they completed the tasks, and winning the overall challenge depended on cash, properties owned, and a final Pub Quiz round. The group were able to raise over $1000 from this one event thanks to very generous donations form people all around the world. It was a hugely successful day and one that resulted in a brilliant amount of money fundraised for the SSPCA.

Our next challenge will be once again based on Curieuse Island, however it will be a spin on the classic UK 90s show ‘The Crystal Maze’ – and fingers crossed we will be able to raise more funds than previously. Our event will be taking place on 15th August and all donations recieved on GlobalGiving will join forces with those our volunteers fundaise to help contribute to the wonderful work of the SSPCA.

Thanks for your continuing support.

All the best

A Wheelchair for Muhsin

Dear Supporter, 

In our continuing efforts to support children and underprivildged schools in Fiji, GVI has recently responded to a request passed on from the Nadi Branch of The Fiji Red Cross to assist a four year old boy from Nadi who has been unable to walk since birth due to a syndromic condition.

Muhsin Shaheem, is not able to support himself and has been reliant on a basic child’s push chair/stroller. Child’s sized wheel chairs are difficult to find in Fiji and very expensive. His parents struggled to find the funding for a more suitable wheelchair so that Muhsin would be able to move around and improve his ability to support himself and eventually to help him be able to attend school.

The GVI CT has now funded, thanks to your donations and support, a wheelchair, imported from the USA, that is suitable to Muhsin’s needs and which has already drastically improved his quality of life and his parents ability to care for him.

Thank you for supporting this project and for making a difference for Mushin.

All the best
