Coaching 100 children in India to continue studies

by New Life

Dear Donors,

Wishing you a Happy, Peaceful, Healthy and Wealthy New Year!

During this season, we remember with gratitude and love, all of you who have helped us walk through the year 2015. Without you, our projects could not have been successful. 

Santhosh lives in Kodappu. He is studying in 11th standard now. His father is a auto rickshaw driver. His mother is a housewife. Santhosh has a brother and a sister. Their monthly income is $167 which is not sufficient to meet the needs of the five people in their family. Santhosh's father Arumugam tells about his progress after he joined our coaching class.

"My son joined the coaching class conducted by New Life in Kodappu when he was studying 7th standard. At that time Santhosh was an average student and was scoring around 55%. He likes to play cricket and kabadi. We at home used to scold him for playing and not scoring good marks. But after he joined the coaching class his performance in studies improved. He scored 85% in his 10th standard public examinations. Now he is in 11th standard. And he is working hard towards his goal of becoming an engineer. He is also participating in the school cricket and kabadi team and representing the school in competitions. Needless to say that we dont scold him now for playing", Arumugam ends with a big grin.   

Coaching poor children like Santhosh is possible only with the donations you make. Yes, you help us to meet out the costs of rent, salary, etc. Kindly keep supporting this cause not only by contributing financially but also by spreading words about this project to your friends and relatives with similar mind. This will help many children like Santhosh. 

Thank you once again.

With regards

 

Hi dear donors,

This August 15th, our children celebrated the 69th Indian Independence Day by hoisting the national flag in our Kodappu coaching center.  Special events were organised by the children. The celebrations went on till the evening, now in the Project office of New Life. The students delivered a speech on an eminent national leader and their qualities which inspired them. Gymastic exercises (like human pyramid formations) and yoga were demonstrated by the students. This was followed by dance programmes and song performances. The quiz programme ended the celebrations on an informative note. Questions were asked and small gifts, given to all of them. The children went home with a filled stomach and an inspired mind.

Archana is studying 7th standard. Her father is Nirai and her mother is KaniMozhi. She has three brothers. Archana’s parents are working as coolies (daily wage labourers). They were not able to support their children in their studies after long hours of hard work. Even if they found the time for it, they could not help the children as they are not well educated. They could not afford the money for Archana's coaching either. They heard about New Life's free coaching classes and found it a blessing to their family. Archana was reportedly an average student before joining our coaching classes. She was securing 45% marks in the subjects on an average. Now, she scores 62% average marks. She is very much interested in Science and she aims to become a nurse one day.

About her examination fear, Archana recollected: "Before joining this coaching class, I was very much afraid of examinations. I had fevers due to it. But now, I feel that my fear is slowly disappearing and I am gaining confidence too. The tips given by the coaching class teacher help me to face the exams with more will power."

Children like Archana, who have the motivation but lack the means for their studies are being helped by the coaching classes of New Life.Thanks dear donors, you have made this possible. Kindly continue supporting these kids fulfil their wishes by spreading words about the project to your likeminded friends and relatives. Our kids are waiting for your support.

With warm regards

Coaching class children on exposure trip
Coaching class children on exposure trip

52 children from our coaching classes were taken on an exposure trip to Annamalai University, a famous university in Chidambaram. The children together with their mentor teachers went to Chidambaram on 21st June by bus. They visited the university and they were exposed to the various courses available. The children were astonished to see the huge campus and the variety of opportunes available. They then visited the famous Chidambaram temple. On their way back they were taken to the historically important places in Poompuhar and Tanjore. The children are very happy that they were taken to places which they have studied in their history lessons.

The funding for the exposure trip was obtained from the related microproject Exposure Trip For 50 Children In India. And we have a balance of $77 which will be used for the next year's trip. During this quarter we received donations of $42.5 and the same was used to pay the honorarium of the teacher. 

10 students from our coaching classes have passed their high school examination with an average of 73% of marks. Of this 10, 2 students have scored 85% marks and they are very happy about it. Santhosh's (scored 426 for 500) father is very happy and says, "Me or my wife are less educated and could not help Santosh in his studies. Thank you teacher, for coaching my son and helping him to score good marks. This would not have been possible without the coaching he is undergoing for the last 6 years. We wish that, so many childre like my son should be benefitted from the coaching class."

Thank your dear donors for continuously supporting our cause. Only with the support and well wishes from people like you, we can achieve this. Kindly spread words about the project to your likeminded friends and relatives. They value your words more. And collective support is much required to continue the coaching classes.

Thank you once again.

With regards

 

 

 

  

Coaching Class Children with their Teacher

The end of March, is the Rush Time for the exams. While the children studying the School Final year and the 10th standard are already writing their exams, the other children are busy preparing for theirs. And the coaching class team is very busy. We wish all the children success. 

Last year, our coaching class children did well and 99% suceeded. Abinesh scored 1081 marks in the Final school exams and Sarala scored 439 marks in 10th standard last year. This year 6 students are writing their 10th standard exams and 5 writing their school final exams. We expect our children to score a minimum of 60%. We are waiting with our fingers crossed for them to come out successfully with good scores.

Renuka is writing her school final exams this year. Her father is a coolie and mother is a servant maid. Their total income is Rs.3500/-per month. They are leading a miserable life. But Renuka's parents are very ambitious and they want their three children to study well. Renuka's sister is in 10th standard and brother is in 7th standard. Their parents are less literates and hence could not help them in studying. So all the three are coming to our coaching class. Renuka scored 59% in 10th standard and now studying in Science group. She wants to become a nurse. And the coaching class teacher is giving special attention to the children writing their school final and 10th standard exams. 

On March 9th, the organisation celebrated the Women's Day. During the function the teachers who work hard and with commitment for the betterment of these coaching class students were honored. We are proud of you dear teachers. 

At this moment, we gratefully remember you, dear donors, who helped us throughout to help these children. Kindly continue to support and spread words about the project close to your heart to your friends and relatives.

With thanks and regards
