Bringing HOPE...Changing LIVES

News from the Sports Desk… HOPE foundation Matriculation High School is established in Kannaginagar, Chennai and is known to be biggest resettlement colony in Asia. Children studying here come from a very difficult background, where abuse of any form is very common. Catering to these kids is a constant challenge as a minor distraction is enough for the children to lose interest in studies. Holistic development of the children is our motto and sports & games play a crucial role in building the students. We are very proud to share a few achievements of the students who participated in the under 14 (junior category) at the district level Kabaddi competition. Girl’s team brought home the Winner’s Trophy and gold medals while boys team had to be happy with the Runners Up trophy and silver medals. This news was captured in the Dinamalar, local newspapers and it gave a tremendous boost to the students who participated in this competition. Apart from Kabbadi, 109 students also participated in a chess competition, volleyball, kabbadi, Kho-Kho, short put, discus throw, jawline, Triple jump, long jump, Hurdle race, and Ball badminton. It was an excellent opportunity for the students to represent the school at the district level in another school premises. All the students displayed an excellent behaviour and sportsman spirit. It was a different exposure for the students.

All this has been made possible only because of your continued support towards the HOPE School.

We strongly believe that, if the energies and the talents of the students of our school is properly channelized, they sure will come out victorious in their lives and your support in providing them a wonderful future, free of any kind of abuse, addiction, crime and violence is very crucial. Once again thank you so much for your generosity which keeps us motivated in continuing to provide quality education and “Bring HOPE .. Change Lives” of the children in need.

Khushbu joined her adoptive family!

Khushbu joined her new family

It was a huge victory to see Khushbu going with her adoptive family. Khushbu was separated at birth form her mother. She was pre maturely born and weighed only 800 grams. The doctors at the hospital battled for her life. After 4 months of hospital stay, her weight doubled and it was 1.63 kilogram. She was ready to come to Asharan. Khushbu developed slowly with the help of loving care givers, occupational therapist and speech therapist. She is one and a half years old, happy and healthy today.

When the time came for her adoption, many parents were skeptical and decided not to take her. They feared that she might become a slow learner in the future; but a beautiful family from India fell in love with her. They have a two year old son. Their attitude was very different from others. They said, “We are prepared to face the future. Any child can turn to become a slow learner; fear for the future will not stop us from adopting Khushbu”.

Khushbu’s victory is your victory too. We wouldn’t have been able to take care of her and bring her to this stage without your support and God’s grace.

Asharan Orphanage, HOPE foundation, Delhi was started in 1997 to give care and protection to young children who have no one else in their lives. Asharan has cared for 694 children since 1997. The children here are at the age group of new born to 7 years presently. In 2018, Asharan cared for 74 kids.  Six orphan children found families through adoption since June 2019.

Asharan’s fire exit and external stairs works are in progress. The building needs complete rennovation now after a gap of 11 years.

Wish list

-         Asharan requires more well-wishers to provide regular monetary support to care for the orphaned and lost children.

-         We definitely need more support to complete the renovation work of Asharan.

-         Our future dream is to raise a corpus fund to sustain Asharan’s work for the future.

We are extremely grateful to all those who have extended your support this quarter. Thank you for being socially responsible. May you be blessed in increasing measures!

Thank you

Mrs. Jolly Geevarghese

Bringing HOPE...Changing LIVES

Tailoring Program was rolled out in the month of May 2019 as part of “Girls Empowerment program” to benefit the girls and young women of Kannagi Nagar Slum Rehabilitation Colony.      

Sewing is an important Life Skill one could acquire and use it as a vehicle to learn and become self-confident and self-dependent.

 

More than 150 girls/young women from the community were counseled to join the course and 60 girls/young women joined the course to learn to stitch.   Of 60 enrolled, only 15 knew simple techniques of stitching while others started to learn from the beginning.   Tailoring classes were held for 6 days a week. All the girls were trained to stitch handkerchiefs & pillow covers, to begin with, and then proceeded to learn Salwar top, Gathering Pants, Bags, Designs of necklines, etc.

Alongside the tailoring classes, grooming and motivational sessions were also conducted for all the girls. 10 of the girls were motivated and grabbed the opportunity to learn FREE basic Computer course offered by HOPE foundation Computer Learning Centre in Kannaginagar.

Thanks to all those who have donated generously for imparting sewing classes and value-based lessons for the girls/young women of Kannagi Nagar Sum Rehabilitation Colony bringing hope and changing lives since 2001.
