Uma Maheswari in the special school
Uma Maheswari is from Thideernagar, Ariyamangalam zone in Trichy district. Her father’s name is Mr. Ramaswamy and mother is Mrs. Vijayalakshmi. She has one eldest brother, one elder sister and two younger brothers. Uma Maheswari and her family was living in Kumbakonam. Her father died due to alcoholism. After her father’s death her family came to Trichy. After they settled in Trichy, all the 5 children in the family were not going to school. Her mother is having illegal affair with Mr.Mohan and she least cared about the children. Uma’s eldest brother Rajesh is 15 year old and he is a construction worker. Having developed hatred for his mother he never comes home. The other three children Rajeswari - 11years old, Uma Maheswari – 8 years old and Chinnu Mani – 7 years old collected waste paper and earned money. The youngest brother Elumalai is 4 years old and he went with his sisters and brother while going to collect waste paper. Vijayalakshmi is a construction worker and she spent all the money she has for Mohan and not even a penny is spent for the children. New life’s staff came to know about them and gave continuous counseling to Vijayalakshmi. Now the children are admitted in our Child labour special school in Ariyamagalam. The youngest one is admitted to our early learning center. Our special school teacher Mrs. Selvi says that the children are happy only in the school. Now the three children are getting good meal with education and they are happily playing with other children.
