Roja

Dear Donors,

May the year 2020 brings with it all the choicest blessings to you!

"I want to become a teacher and help those children, especially girls who could not study due to their poverty like me", says Roja (name changed). She continues, "I would have lost my future rearing goats unless New Life had supported me. I thank New Life and all those donors out there who have helped me to continue my studies".

Roja's parents are working as daily wage earners and their yearly income is $600 (approximately). They have two sons and one daughter, Roja. Their poor income is insufficient to meet out the food expenses. How could they spend for the education of their children? Hence they decided to stop Roja's studies and sent her to rear goats.

The New Life team in Kodiyampalayam found out Roja and talked with her. They rekindled her interest in studies, convinced her parents to send Roja to the special school for child labour. Roja is good enough to join 5th standard in the regular school after one year of coaching in the special school. 

Roja scored good marks (70%) in 10th standard Government exam, applied for financial support from New Life. She was selected for support and is now doing her 12th standard. She is preparing well for the final year of school exams. We are sure she will score well and achieve her dream of becoming a teacher and helping many poor students like her. 

Thank you, dear donors, for supporting girl children like Roja to fulfil their dreams. Without your support, New Life could not have continued supporting these children. Kindly keep helping children like Roja. Boost us by spreading the message about this aspiring kids and their dreams to your friends and relatives. Your words mean a lot to us.

Thanking you once again on behalf of our team and our lovely children.

With regards

Sharuk chatting with the Secretary, New Life

Sharuk (name changed) was a construction labourer. He was forced to go to work leaving his primary education as his father fell sick and could not earn. Being the first son, he took over his father's role and started earning. Later he was identified by the special school teacher of New Life. She counselled and convinced Sharuk and his family to continue his education.  He joined the child labour special school and admitted to regular school in the 6th standard. 

Sharuk is a good student. He scored 81% in the 10th public exam and was selected to get education support from New Life. He scored 62% in his higher secondary education and got admission for doing Undergraduate in Commerce. 

"Thanks to New Life and donors who support me for studying. I am getting the education support for the fourth year, which motivates me to continue my studies. Many girls and boys in my village are also getting support. Thank you," says Sharuk. When asked what is his aim in life, he says with determination, "I want to become a soldier". 

Dear Donors, kindly continue to support us in helping children like Sharuk to continue their studies. Only with your support, their dreams are coming true. Make their world brighter by spreading words about the project to your friends and relatives. 

Thank you once again for your support.

Jasmine with the book she chose

Dear Donors,

To motivate the trainees of skill training and to introduce the habit of book reading amongst them, New Life’s mobile library is now expanded to the Nagamangalam Housing Board. It is a Slum Clearance Board where a lot of coolies are staying. The Mobile Library started functioning there on 3.8.2019. Children eagerly browsed the books and read the books of their choice.

Jasmine (name changed) is 16 years old. She is a school dropout / Child labourer. She could not continue her studies after 8th standard. Now she has joined our skill training programme for ex-child labourers in Nagamangalam.

Jasmine chose a book on “Rules of the Road” in Tamil. When asked why she selected the book, she says “I chose the book as it had more pictures” (with a big smile). She continued, “I learnt the rules I should follow while using the road. I don’t know about the traffic signals so far. In fact, I haven’t seen them. Now I learnt about them.”

Children like Jasmine have the opportunity to learn new things through the Mobile Library. This is possible only with support from you dear donors. Kindly keep supporting our projects both financially and morally as we need funds for operating the library. Keep spreading words about the project to your friends and relatives. Your words carry weight.

Dear donors, you may be knowing about the “Little by Little Campaign” during August 12-16. Your small donations will add up to great change. GlobalGiving will match donations up to $50 & there will be cash prizes for the top fundraising project. So contribute during August 12-16 to multiply the value of your donations.

Thank you once again!

With regards,

New Life's staff with the books

Ganesh

Dear Donors,

Ganesh (name changed) is doing his second-year undergraduate in Commerce and Computer Applications in a college in Namakkal. He is a single parented boy. His father passed away two years back and the mother is sick. His elder brother took over the role of his father. He is a daily wage earner and saw that Ganesh and his 2 sisters were fed and educated. 

Ganesh was rearing goats at the age of 9 and was rescued by our special school teacher in Arangoor in the year 2007. Then he was admitted to the regular school. Now he is in college. His entire family is much thankful to his special school teacher and New Life as he could continue his studies. He wants to become a bank manager and is preparing for the competitive exams too besides his regular studies. Ganesh is being financially supported by New Life consecutively for the 3rd year.

In the words of his special school teacher: "Ganesh is a calm boy. His younger sisters were motivated to continue their education on seeing Ganesh continuing his education and scoring 60% of marks in common Board Exams. I can say, he is a role model to  our child labour special school children in Arangoor."

New Life is planning to give financial support to the ex-child labour children who are continuing their studies by the end of June. Applications are received from 43 children and a minimum of 25 children will be supported. 

Dear Donors, all the above achievements are possible only with the donations and support you are continuously giving. We and our children are grateful to you for lighting lamps in their life.  Kindly keep supporting our children. Kindly provide us with more support by spreading words about our project to your friends and relatives. Your words carry more weight. 

Thanking you once again.

With regards

Dear Donors,

Greetings!

The month of January was the celebration month for our ex-child labour children. On 14th January, the Harvest Festival of Tamil Nadu, "Pongal" was celebrated with children from special school for child labourers, coaching class and early learning centre. Fun games were conducted for the children and their parents. Pongal (a sweet made of rice) was cooked and distributed to all the participants.

The 70th Republic Day was celebrated in a slum we work (where family quarrels, addiction to alcohol, child abuse, poverty and crimes are prone). Indian national flag was hoisted by the Secretary of Rotary Club of Diamond City Queens.

In the function, Rani (name changed), one of our coaching class students shared her 9 years of experience with New Life. And the best part of it is, she was child labour once, rescued and coached in our special school. Then she was mainstreamed and coached in our coaching class.

Rani was working in a grocery store packing grocery as her parents were happy with the money she brought. On seeing her, the New Life team counselled the child and the parents (it was not an easy task) and admitted her to the special school. She was trained in the special school and then admitted to the regular school in 6th standard. Now she is in her 11th standard. She wants to become a doctor.

This New Year brought with it, appreciation for our team's hard work. You would be happy to know that New Life got four badges in appreciation from GlobalGiving. All these happy happenings and celebrations are possible only with your wonderful support. We are thankful to you dear donors.

You will also be happy to know that New Life's initiative in skilling the ex-child labourers who are weak in studies has succeeded. We participated in the Social Initiative Contest of Intel and are selected for giving Computer Billing Skill Training to 100 ex-child labourers who could not continue their studies. We thank you for being with us all these years and continuing your support with trust in our work. Your trust made us conceive this new project to help these abused children. The project was inaugurated on the 6th of March. We believe that your wishes will make it a great success. You can have a glimpse of the project at:

Kindly keep supporting us and be a blessing to our children who are cursed in their childhood. Keep spreading words about our work and about these children to your friends and relatives who would love to support them. Even a small donation you give will add to the education support fund of the ex-child labour children. I thank you once again for your generous support.
