Your donations has helped us reach our objectives

Dear Friends,

We are glad to mention that all our students have moved on to the next grade and at present are pursuing Grade X. This year extra preparation and concentration will be taken by the students as they have to face their Board Examinations in March 2014.

Your support, love, and care to our children have brought them to this level. We'd like you to know that your thoughtfulness is truly making a difference in the lives of so many.

‘Nature call cannot be foretold or determined’ – unfortunately our SPPD family had faced a desperate situation. Yes. We are sorry to say that one of our student Master P.Elayakumar who was enrolled to this educational material support as well as our Evening Study Center student had passed away due to HIV – AIDS infection. In spite of continuous treatment, his health condition became too critical and on 5th March he breathed his last. We pray the love of God enfolds his family during this hour and helps them heal with the passage of time. 

Your charitable donation has allowed us to purchase the much-needed supplies that will directly benefit our children in this program – Uniforms, Innerwear, Footwear, Note books , Stationeries like pens, pencils, erasers, scale, geometry box , toiletries like bathing and washing soap, coconut oil.

The donations are to be distributed to the students very soon. We will catch you up with our project’s updates in the next report.

We are pleased to share one of the beneficiary’s story benefited by the project 

Name                                    :               P.Balasubramanian

Class                                      :               Std. X

Age                                        :               13 years

Mother’s Name`              :               Mariyayee

Father’s Name                :               Perumal

Address                         :               4/24, Adi Dravidar Street, Sittilarai Post, Musiri Tk., Trichy District

School                           :               Saraswathi Vidhya Sala Mania High School.

Balasubramaniyan is studying Grade X in Saraswathi Vidhya Sala Mania High School, Sittilarai. He belongs to a very poor family. His father is working in the plantain fields. He is a very innocent man but an alcoholic. Sometimes he has been robbed by his own friends.

His mother is working in a garment factory in Thirupur. They have two children to take care of.  Due to the drinking habit, his father used to return at late hours in the night which often ended in frequent misunderstandings in the family and ended in striking his mother. Since his mother was working in Thirupur, she resides there to avoid this problem. Every weekend she visits her children. She is the only earning member of the family. Her income was insufficient to feed and educate the family.

They live in a hut house. There is no electricity in their house. She was unable to get her children the basic materials required for school. Three meals a day was uncertain for them. Though Balasubramanian is interested in studies he had no one to guide him with it. He never used to wear clean clothes. In this situation, he started going for coolie work in the farm during his free time.

Though she is uneducated she is very interested in educating her children.

With regards,


Secretary, SPPD
