Thank you friends for having India in your thoughts and prayers. Your love and affection boosts our morale and immunity.

India is facing an unprecedented crisis but your succor will help us ride over it soon. 

This week we began our Covid relief work with special focus on infected people in rural India. Many people have tested Covid positive and are being forced to stay home in isolation. For the rest of social ostracisarion and stigma, people are not coming in the open and seeking help.

We are identifying such people with the help of Village Health Workers and providing them a Health Kit worth $15 which consists non-predcription medicines for fever and cold/cough as well as dry fruits and gloves, masks and sanitizers. Many poor people are suffering in silence. Your kindness is making a huge difference in their lives. 

We request you to spread the word and help us bring back many more people to normalcy and lead a healthy life. 

Stay safe. Stay home.

Thank you for your support to our Covid Relief activities. In April 2020, when we launched our relief operations, we had meek response in the initial stages.

 

With the help of a lot of volunteers, we were able to organize distribution of grocery packets to many migrant workers and others in need. Noticing our commitment, several individuals and organizations came forward to participate in distribution and donation. 

We were able to help 8000 migrant families and distributed 40,000 bread packets to people returning to their villages from Hyderabad.

GlobalGiving too was gracious in making a donation of $10,000 for Covid Relief. 

Around October 2020, we decided to support teachers from private schools who lost their jobs. We covered. It was one of its kind activity taken up in Hyderabad.

 We hope your patronage will be with us in our future endeavors. We are setting up a school in our premises. We will need your blessings.

Distribution of Grocery Kits to Private School Teachers – A Short Report

 As Covid 19 raised its head in India, educational institutions all over the country were closed down in the third week of March 2020. There was a complete lockdown and every sector in the economy and every walk of life came to a standstill.

After the lockdown was lifted, most people went back to their normal lives as the economy was opened up. As the schools were still closed, most private schools were not able to recover fees from their students. This resulted in an acute financial crisis for most schools. Many schools either terminated their teachers or paid little salaries.

In view of the continued hardship being faced by the private teachers, Sphoorti Foundation identified 1200 teachers from 25 Private Schools in Hyderabad and Medchal districts. They complied with our stipulation that the details of the beneficiaries (phone numbers and residential addresses) must be provided upfront.

We completed the distribution between Aug 12 and Oct 20. All the teachers expressed their gratitude for helping them in these challenging circumstances.

Sphoorti Foundation looks forward to more opportunities to work with you in the years to come.

Dear friends,

Thank you so much for your support to Sphoorti, unstinted, every month. Your generosity helps us focus on the welfare of children instead of getting stressed about financial resources. 

In July 2020, we focused on keeping in touch with children who have been repatriated to their legal guardians. We have also made sure that there is no financial burden on some of the family members because of their wards staying at home for more than 4 months. In some cases, we sent money and in some instances, we provided grocery kits to those who could visit Sphoorti campus.

Through friends like you, we have been able to provide gadgets like Laptop and mobiles to some of our children who are attending online classes at STD XI and XII level.

As the schools have been shut, the teachers working in private schools are facing pay cuts and terminations. To help some of them, we started a campaign to provide Groceries worth Rs 1500 / USD 20 which would help them meet their food requirements for a month. So far, we have reached about 600 teachers while our target is to reach 2000 teachers in distress. 

A big news for July has been a donation of $18,000 for classrooms for our proposed Sphoorti Model school. The donor organization is US-based Guru Krupa Foundation which earlier supported construction of 4 rooms. 

The Covid situation in Hyderabad and vicinity is not good. We hope that things will be back to normal in September/October. Meanwhile, we are procuring the necessary infrastructure for our school - dual desks, chairs, storage etc. A friend has donated a 55 in Television and another friend has offered to give 5 Projectors when our school starts functioning. We also received a donation of Rs 5 Lakhs for school from V-Guard last month.  

Thank you so much for being with us in our journey.
