Dear Friends,

Thank you for your continued support to our project 'Send a Child in India to School for a Year'.

With your support we are about to begin a new year and are excited about the hopes and challenges it will bring. And at this yearend, we would like to share with you the experience of a child who study at our non formal education centre, so that you come to know how exactly YOUR support is creating real change.

Here is the experience from a girl named Anita:

My name is Anita and I am 9 years old. My father is Ishwar Lal ji and he works in the fields and as a laborer. My mother’s name is Sheila Devi and I have 2 brothers. My younger brother and I study in Seva Mandir’s Shiksha Kendra (Non Formal Education Center) in Kotala. My elder brother Suresh Kumar has also passed out from Seva Mandir’s Shiksha Kendra and is now studying in class 7 in a non-government school. The distance from my home to Seva Mandir’s School and to the government school is the same, but we come to study in Seva Mandir’s School because teachers beat children in the government school and demand for various things which we have to bring. But there is no pressure on us in our Seva Mandir School. We are independent here and can concentrate on our studies – and we have fun. The teacher of our school is very nice. He uses various innovative teaching methods to teach us. We love the way he teaches us. We have a big water tank at our school and we get drinking water from here.”

So that was the experience of Anita. We are able to make these progresses because of YOU. Once again thank you so much for your continued support.

Best wishes,

Atul Lekhra
