Living with Possibilities

 Dear Supporter

Thank you for the support that you have provided to New Light.  The precious children at New Light are filled with possibilities from the nurturing they get.  Your support matters. 

While this may not be relevant, what occurred to me after seeing a play about Alexander Hamilton, an American revolutionary stateman, and Founding Father of the United States that although he was born in poverty to an unmarried woman and was orphaned in the West Indes as a child, this brilliant young person sought education and was  was able to beat all odds. 

To beat all odds in India may prove a harder road since the stigma of being a Dalit (lowest caste) or a child of a prostitute often carries a life sentence. New Light proves that their fate is not set in stone and that they have all the opportunity to be whoever they want to become with hard work and intention.

The role of New Light is to give children born in a red-light district an expansive and well-rouded childhood. This last month the younger children took part in Art in the Park, a series of outdoor art activities designed by DAG ( Delhi Art Gallery ) that encourages children to explore nature through imagination and creative expression. It was a delightful day for the children to be out in the park after spending months and months indoors during the pandemic. The older girls took part in the Calcutta Club Bakery Festival/Spring Fest where the girls added rainbow colors to the event with their brilliant dance performance. With activities like these, the children can realize that they too have worth. You as a supporter let them know that kindness and love abound in the world regardless.

Thank you!
