The Republic Day and Samathuva Pongal were celebrated at New Life's Kajapettai Early Learning Centre on 26th January. It was celebrated to foster freedom, peace, unity and compassion. The flag was hoisted by the chief guest Rtn. Valarmathi, President, Rotary Club of Trichirappalli Sakthi. Competitions were conducted for women (kolam competition) and children (sack race and frog race). Prizes were sponsored by RCT Shakthi. Pongal was distributed and sweets given.
It was lovely to see our alumnae participate in the competitions conducted. Mala was a student of our early learning centre during 2011-13. She is now studying 7th standard. She participated in the sack race and got a prize. We are happy to see the energetic Mala who was weak when admitted to our centre. Mala thanks New Life team for giving her the motivation even after she left the early learning centre. She says, with no parents at home to look after (her mother died and her father left the 9 children with their maternal grandmother) she is able to study and participate in games only with the continuous support provided to her by New Life's coaching class.
We thank you, dear donors, for supporting poor, deprived, deserted children like Mala to have a safe childhood with nutritious food and help them to achieve age-appropriate milestones. Kindly keep supporting these poor children who are from difficult circumstances. Keep spreading words about the project to your friends and relatives. Even your small contributions are valuable for our children. During this pandemic time we are providing nutritious food to the children and help us help them.
