From a shepherd boy to a police
Prabhu getting the education support
Thank you for your generous donations during this quarter.
During the months July to September, the project received donations of $197.49 . The amount was received with thanks and spent for providing $167 education support to Navdeep who is studying in 9th standard. And the balance amount of $ 30 is used for paying the rent (partial) of a centre for three months.
Let us hear the story of Prabhu from Mrs. Kalaiselvi, our Special School Staff. "Prabhu is 16 years old and due to poor family background, he had to drop out from school while he was in IV standard. He started supporting his family financially by sheep rearing. His mother C. Mani is 48 years old and works as a coolie and earns Rs 150/- per day. Some times she will not have any work and during those days the family have to starve. Prabhu's father died some years ago. And he has 2 brothers.
When I came to know about him, I approached Mani, with much effort convinced her to stop sending the boy to the work. It was because of the boy's interest in studies and our continuous efforts, the boy was sent to the special school. He joined VIII standard in the Government Higher Secondary School, Arangur. When he received your support (the teacher means the donors here), he was studying X standard. I am proud that he scored 69% marks in the public exams held in the month of March 2015.
Now Prabhu is studying in XI standard. His dream is to become a police cop. He speaks about his dream with passion in his eyes"
The team of New Life wishes that his dream may come true. The dreams of poor, deprived children like Prabhu can be made a reality only with the support of you, dear donors. So kindly keep supporting these children, to complete their education. With you as partners, New Life wishes to support the dream of a minimum of 25 such children who were earlier child labourers. We know your words carry weight with your likeminded friends and relatives. Kindly keep spreading the message about the project close to your heart and help these children achieve their dreams.
With warm regards
