Pinky (name Changed) is a resident of Arias Home of Hope. She is a kind hearted loving and a friendly 12 year old girl. She studies in a government school in class 7 and the strength of her class is approximately 50 to 55. The competition is very high but being a bright student she is liked by her teachers.

Pinky wakes up early in the morning at about 4 am to revise her studies. She wants to become a doctor and hence puts in a lots of hard work.

This year Pinky got selected for a Class leader’s position as she achieved good grades in her class tests. Besides this, her good leadership and coordinating skills has helped her to co-ordinate well between the students, group leaders and teachers and thus receives praise from her teachers and feels very happy and proud.

Pinky is growing up to be an understanding girl. She has the attitude of learning and respects everyone.

At Arias home, the girls are groomed and nurtured to become upright individuals and are inculcated with right values. They are taught to be god fearing and helpful to others.

Your continued support will help Pinky who is an orphan become a doctor and a fine human being.

We appreciate the support we receive from you to provide safe and secure shelter, food , clothing and education to the children of our 3 homes and request you to continue extending your generous support to help girls like Pinky to achieve their dreams.

English a must know language!

The English language plays a necessary role in our lives as it helps in communication. English is vital for students as it broadens their minds, develops emotional skills, improves the quality of life by providing job opportunities. Moreover, the use of English as an international language is growing with time because it is the only medium for communication in many countries.

Usually, underprivileged children studying in schools having other medium of instruction than English find it difficult to communicate in English and therefore, they are found to be low on their morale and confidence.

Children from our 3 orphanages also find it difficult to communicate in English as they go to schools which use Tamil as a medium of instructions. HOPE foundation ensures that it provides best platform and opportunities to the 80+ children from 3 orphanages to learn and develop at par to with the privileged students, hence in the month of September 2021, Talking Yak was introduced for the children to learn English. Talking yak is an app which is designed for students to learn English easily from their own language. Right now, 59 students from HOPE worldwide Orphanage, Arias home of HOPE, Acharapakkam and Community Center of HOPE Tirunelveli are studying. Children are happy to learn English from this app. The app teaches grammar, phonics, pronunciation, and conversation through videos. The app is monitored by the Talking Yak staff and they send the children’s progress report every month. 

 

Since the physical schools are not happening, the children get enough time in the home which they utilize in developing their skills in spoken English. These children are grouped together wherein the children who have progressed well mentor the slow learners. Lots of reading materials is given to them other than the one they have on the app to improve their English.

 

It’s been a wonderful journey for the children so far and they have developed a liking for the subject and want to excel in English.

 

We appreciate the donations that we receive from donors like you that enables organisation like ours to help develop the children’s abilities and skills and prepare them for the future.

 

Thank you!

Mamta learning to stitch
Mamta learning to stitch

Mamta is an 18 year old HIV+ positive girl. She came to the Arias Home of HOPE when she was just 8 years old. She lost her parents to HIV/AIDS and her grandmother was the sole care taker however due to old age, she was unable to take care of Mamta and thus left her at Arias HOME in 2010. Since then, Mamta has been living in the home. She could not complete her X Std. as she was unable to cope with her studies. Consumption of ART medications impacted her capacity to retain information of subject studied, thus in spite of repeated attempts, she was unable to complete her board exams and studies.

HOPE foundation works towards building the skills of every child and thus encourages them to learn some or the other skill building course of their interest that would help them earn a descent livelihood once they are rehabilitated back into the community.

Since Mamtha could not study further, she was enrolled for tailoring/sewing courses. Mamtha has a liking towards stitching and sewing and instantly picked up this skill. She is attending online training on learning how to stitch and sew.

We are very happy and full of gratitude for your ongoing support that’s helps HOPE foundation to help build the lives of children who are infected and affected by HIV/AIDS

This quarter, we bring update from all the orphanages run/supported by HOPE foundation;   Arias Home of HOPE, Acharapakkam,   Divya orphanage, Trichy & Community Care Centre of HOPE, Tirunelveli.

The school was briefly opened only for 9th to 12th std.,  and college students from  Jan to March 2021 While 18 children attended these direct classes,  all the other children were attending the online classes relayed through Kalvi Channel.

On the other hand volunteers were engaging the children virtually and teaching them  dance, spoken English, painting, computers, craft work etc.,  Children from AHH & Divya Orphanage are spending time every day gardening.  They are learning to nurture and care for various                 plants and trees in the orphanage premises.   

All of the children are provided with nutritionally balanced meals regularly.  Children who are infected with HIV+ve went for their regular medical check-up in the hospital and all of them are healthy. 

The staffs of Homes have been taking care of all the 70+ children 24*7 very committedly and devotedly.  The children are provided with nutritious food, emotional and physical needs are being met etc.,  They have rescheduled their time depending upon the requirement of the children as all the kids are confined to  the orphanage premises due to COVID-19 pandemic and its lock down. 

Our heartfelt gratitude to one and all, who have continuously supported HOPE foundation to provide such profound care for the children in need.

Though all the schools and establishments were closed down through 2020 due to COVID-19 spread lockdown, the orphanages run/supported by HOPE foundation had to function continuously 24*7. By obtaining proper permission for the Government departments, all the staff of the orphanages devotedly took care of the children by having a daily schedule engaging them in various activities without allowing them to get into boredom. As the children were confined to the premises of the orphanages, virtual volunteering was opened up and over 25+ volunteers signed up to engage the children from different parts of India, US, Canada etc.,   The volunteers had the opportunity to engage the children in the orphanages through various activities such as painting, art & craftwork, drawing, basket weaving, baking, teaching computers, stitching, gardening, conducting motivational sessions etc.,

 

Heartfelt gratitude to all those volunteers who happily volunteered to spend their precious in BRINGING HOPE… CHANGING LIVES…
