Ensure Education for 100 Child Laborers

Nov 23, 2011

This Child is supported by "YOU"

Vikram is 12 years old boy residing in 12, Kamaraj Nagar, Ariyamangalam, Tiruchirappalli District, Tamil Nadu. He was enjoying all the love, care and affection of his father as the only child. His father died in an accident in 2001. After his father’s death his mother got remarried and she gave birth to a girl child. Now his mother and his step father are concentrating only on the girl child and they least care for Vikram. This made Vikram a rag picker and he started to take care of himself as he did not get enough food. The mother could not educate Vikram as the step father is not supportive. Our New Life team identified him and gave a continuous counseling to him and his mother. Now he is studying 5th standard in our child labour special school. After a few counseling sessions his mother is also taking care of him.

Our special school teacher Mrs. Selvi says that in the beginning Vikram was arrogant and never obeyed the teacher, and quarreled with other children often. After some time, there is a drastic change in his attitude. Education along with nutritious food has made a remarkable change in the life of Vikram. This is made possible only with the help of donations made by noble hearts like you and so many Vikrams are given an opportunity to improve their self esteem, sense of pride, confidence and motivation to continue their education.
