Making Dream Come True- Report 2023 BREADS
“Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much.” – Helen Keller
Greetings from BREADS Bangalore!
We are delighted to share our updated report regarding the education support we have received from various donors through the GlobalGiving Platform. Currently, 125 underprivileged girl children continue their education with the invaluable support provided by all of you. These children are diligently working towards achieving excellent performance in their class assessments and final examinations. Many Don Bosco Care Centres have been providing guided classes, and special coaching, particularly for those preparing for their Class X examinations.
Thanks to your generosity, we have received a total of USD 9,080.51 from various donors through GlobalGiving. We have fully allocated these funds to the education of 125 disadvantaged children. These resources are being utilized to cover school fees, uniforms, educational materials, and nutritious meals. All these children are living in vulnerable conditions like prone child labour, child marriage, victims of child abuse, the children from broken families/single parent and orphans.
The children who benefit from GlobalGiving’s educational support have expressed their appreciation for another year of school life and the learning experience which has boosted their confidence and self-esteem. In line with our tradition, BREADS has organized various programs to enhance their life skills, nurture the values of teamwork, and improve interpersonal relationships.
This year, we have also rescued more than 70 children from vulnerable situations. We provided them with short-term bridge education (remedial education) and subsequently either admitted them to our rehabilitation centers or reunited them with their families to continue their formal education. The sponsorship support primarily aids in the education and rehabilitation of these children also.
We maintain regular contact with the children through our Don Bosco/ BREADS staff to ensure their ongoing attendance at school and to raise their educational standards. The children have been encouraged to participate in evening tuition classes established in their villages by BREADS, using these facilities to improve their educational performance and complete their school assignments with the guidance of mentors.
The children, along with BREADS and the local Don Bosco Centres, express our deepest gratitude to all our donors and GlobalGiving for their unwavering support and guidance. Your assistance has enabled around 125 children to complete another year of education and excel in their lives. We hope that your continuous support will extend to more vulnerable children who are currently denied their right to education.
Thank you very much for your generosity,
