Maheswari's childhood restored


Thank you dear donors, for choosing to support our project.

Maheswari is a 10 years old girl. She is studying 5th standard in New Life’s special school now.  Her father’s name is S. Sekar.  He is selling ice cream in Karur. He never takes care of Maheswari.  Three years before Maheswari’s mother died.   After that Maheswari had to live with her grand mother.  Grand mother did not send Maheswari to school, asked her to do household works and sent her for rag picking. 

During her leisure times Maheswari will be wandering in the streets. New Life staff saw her spending her childhood like this and talked with her. She expressed her interest to study. Then we had to counsel her grandmother who was very reluctant to admit Maheswari to the special school. After continuous counselling Maheswari is now admitted in New Life’s special school for child labourers in Ukkadai.  In the beginning she was not able to read or write.  She is studying in our school for two years.  Now she can read newspapers and others books also.  She helps younger children to read and write. She is much interested in handwork. 

Since she is picking up her studies quickly we hope she will be admitted to the sixth standard next year. She is now happy that she can study and play with children of her age. So many such children could be helped to get educated with the noble support from people like you.

Kindly spread words about our work to your friends and relatives who are like-minded. We thank you donors, once again for supporting us.
