scientific inventions by HOPE school children

Nothing is impossible if you have the will and this proverb stands so true in the case of          D. Anuangel & M. Magesh’s of class IX of HOPE foundation Matriculation High School. They were selected to participate in NATIONAL CHILDREN'S SCIENCE CONGRESS, a flagship program of NCSTC NETWORK. It is also a platform to celebrate practical science and an inclusive platform where young scientists use their scientific skills to address real problems. D. Anuangel & M. Magesh’s presented a research paper on “Traditional Knowledge Systems (TKS)” and did a research for 61 days on “How copper water helps to cure many diseases”. Out of 140 research papers presented on the day of the summit, the jury selected 73 research papers and D. Anuangel & M. Magesh’s was one amongst them.  It was a big achievement for them and to the school as students from the best schools in the city participated in this event.

D. Anuangel & M. Magesh have proved that no matter what background they come from, it will not hamper them from achieving their goal of becoming a Scientist one day.

Sharad and Sakshi, the children with special needs have started schooling in a special school. Both of them are 4 years old now. Though Saakshi cannot hold her body up still, she shows much excitement about the whole process of getting ready in the morning and travelling to the school with Francis Bhayya and the teacher. School is a new experience for both of them and they look forward to it every day.

Both Sakshi and Sharad were abandoned at birth in different hospitals. Both were prematurely born and had to be in the incubator for a long time. Both are under treatment for convulsions. Sharad is able to walk but not talk. Sakshi is learning to sit and balance her neck at the age of four. She too does not speak.

Empowering Mahalakshmi

Being a girl isn’t that easy. Being an orphan….there’s no telling. Mahalakshmi lost her father before she was born and when she was 10yrs., old, her mother died of HIV/AIDS. Mahalakshmi also got infected with HIV/AIDS.

Her grandparents and relatives stretched their helping hands to Mahalakshmi and her brother.

At the age of 13, she was very playful and not serious about her studies.   Irrespective of the care given by the  guardian, she couldn’t focus on building her life and discontinued her 10th std.,  studies

In 2018, her grandparents joined her in one of the homes with the hope that she would study well and learn to be obedient; but she was not happy in the home. 

Mahalakshmi met with one of our staff during her visit to Tambaram TB hospital for her monthly medical check-up and sought help for shelter and care.  She was counseled and then she was admitted to the home on 3rd October 2019. 

Even as she is awaiting to enroll herself for completing her 10th std.,  she joined 3 months tailoring course and completed the same.  

Mahalakshmi is a very happy 19-year-old girl and spent her time very productively by equipping herself with tailoring skills.  On the other hand, she is also preparing to write upcoming 10th std., exams.

Each one of your support has enabled HOPE foundation to bring hope and change lives of 75+ children like “Mahalakshmi”.

 

THANK YOU!
