I take this opportunity to thank everyone for supporting Sphoorti activities over the last couple of years through contributions to GlobalGiving Campaigns.

In this report, we would like to showcase a particular issue which was addressed through your support. 

C, Sh and Sa are orphan children. Their parents hailed from a tribal area in Warangal district and moved to another hamlet in Kesamudram town in the same district 10 years ago. 

They were gifted a piece of land started building a small house on it. Because of Tuberculosis, he passed away while the house remained unfinished. The children's mother also passed away 2 years ago.

Since then, the children were left to fend for themselves as there were no relatives to take care. C was working in a nearby Chicken Shop and providing for his sisters Sh and Sa. They were staying in the unfinished house using temporary roof made of rags and coconut leaves etc. 

In January, we received information about their situation through local press. We decided to help the children by completing the house and providing long term support to the three children.

Accodingly, we contributed Rs 50,000 raised through GlobalGiving and got the work started. Withthe help of local organizations, we were able to complete the construction on April 7. 

The District Collector inaugurated the house. 

We have also been successful in placing the children in a Child Care Institution. The children will be provided support until they finish their studies.

Thank you for your support of all our campaigns on GlobalGiving. This particular campaign has been receiving your patronage for several years now.

In October, there was flooding in Hyderabad and a lot of people lost their belongings and were left with nothing. Sphoorti chipped in by providing food and other essentials for such families with a particular focus on children so that they do not starve.  

In November and December, we have been focusing on providing warm clothing to deal with the hardships the falling temperatures present to poor and homeless children. We have distributed more than 1000 sweaters to children in Hyderabad and other places in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

Thank you so much for your unstinted support to Sphoorti. Your generosity helps us focus on the welfare of children instead of getting stressed about financial resources. 

In July 2020, we focused on keeping in touch with children who have been repatriated to their legal guardians. We have also made sure that there is no financial burden on some of the family members because of their wards staying at home for more than 4 months. In some cases, we sent money and in some instances, we provided grocery kits to those who could visit Sphoorti campus.

Through friends like you, we have been able to provide gadgets like Laptop and mobiles to some of our children who are attending online classes at STD XI and XII level.

As the schools have been shut, the teachers working in private schools are facing pay cuts and terminations. To help some of them, we started a campaign to provide Groceries worth Rs 1500 / USD 20 which would help them meet their food requirements for a month. So far, we have reached about 600 teachers while our target is to reach 2000 teachers in distress. Please check the campaign - Help 2000 teachers who lost their jobs and are starving.

A big news for July has been a donation of $18,000 for classrooms for our proposed Sphoorti Model school. The donor organization is US-based Guru Krupa Foundation which earlier supported construction of 4 rooms. 

The Covid situation in Hyderabad and vicinity is not good. We hope that things will be back to normal in September/October. Meanwhile, we are procuring the necessary infrastructure for our school - dual desks, chairs, storage etc. A friend has donated a 55 in Television and another friend has offered to give 5 Projectors when our school starts functioning. We also received a donation of Rs 5 Lakhs for school from V-Guard last month.

Greetings from Sphoorti Foundation !

Trust all our friends are healthy and safe. Covid-19 has created extraordinary circumstances in our lives. 

As a precaution, we re-integrated Sphoorti inmates with their extended families in the month of March as soon as the schools declared holidays. This has ensured that children are safe and away from Covid-19 infections. We are in touch with each of the children over telephone and Whatsapp. Fortunately, none of our children have been infected. 

As the STD X Board examinations were postponed and are expected to be conducted in a month's time, we are making sure our children are studying and in touch with their teachers for guidance. Despite the lockdown conditions, the school teachers have been proactively guiding our children for the last 4 weeks. 

 

Like any responsible non-profit organization, Sphoorti took a plunge in supporting migrant workers and daily wage laborers stranded in Hyderabad and other areas in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Our efforts were featured in local newspapers - https://www.edexlive.com/happening/2020/may/04/this-hyderabad-ngo-raised-rs-32-lakh-and-helped-migrant-workers-uber-drivers-across-the-city-here-11779.html

Dear friends,

Thanks so much for your support to our projects/campaigns on GlobalGiving. 

Sphoorti Foundation now has more than 240 children being supported - from basic amenities to quality Higher education.

We recently installed Solar Water Heating system in the Girls Building with an outlay of Rs 1.56 L (almost $2000). We also distributed sweaters and blankets to more than 2000 students and homeless people. Sphoorti received World CSR Day award from World CSR Council. 

In the recent times, some of our children have started pursuing education at Masters' level. One of such children is Chaitanya. We will share his story in this update. 

Chaitanya joined Sphoorti in 2006-07 when he was 8 years old. He had no education until then. We put him in STD II so that he could pick up some skills in language and counting. As time progressed, he jumped classes and at 16, he was able to complete his STD X. From then onwards, he didnt look back, he studied Junior College and then completed Bachelors in COmputer Science. Though he was offered a job as an Analyst, he wanted to study further.

He recently joined MSc Statistics in Telangana University, He wishes to study in the US in the near future, Let us hope his dreams come true
