Dear Donors,

We wholeheartedly thank all of  you for your wonderful support!

We are happy to have secured a permanent spot on GlobalGiving Website. It was possible only because of your donations. We started a project in the year 2009 when we realized that many children in the villages we work were about to become child labourers, if they were left uncared for. Because their parents were all daily wagers and did not have any financial support to educate them. Moreover, many children were abandoned, fatherless or motherless, and children of disabled parents. Many fathers in the community were/are alcoholic and would squander away the little income they would make, thus had little money to spend for their children's education.So, we, after a careful screening process,selected 60 very poor,meritorious children (50% of whom were girl children) from over 20 villages. All the children in the project now receive monthly financial support for their School fee, Uniform, Footwears, Stationery, Notebooks, Talcum Powder, Hair Oil etc. Second year into the project, 58 children have successfully passed onto the next grade and would continue their education to reach the secondary grade.

Motivated by the enthusiasm and educational progress those children in the programme display, many more parents, with deserving children, have come forward and requested us to enroll their children too into the programme.This means more number of beneficiaries and more fund requirement. We would be able to help those 50 new children only if we raise enough funds.The project we have posted on the GlobalGiving Website will, if required funds are raised, be able to help those  50 deserving children to receive education and thus secure bright future. We strongly hope that your support is very crucial and you would continue showing the support in the days to come as well. We will come up with more updates on the project and the beneficiaries soon.
