Help Build a Home for 50 Underprivileged Children

by New Life

Dear Donors,

We thank all those donors who supported us and the creditors who believed in us while we constructed the additional rooms in our home. The children have ample space to live, study and sleep now. They are happy to live in their new rooms. The construction could be finished only with a loan of $24000 and we are requesting your goodselves help us repay the loan.

Only droplets of water can make a ocean. And many small donations can help us repay the entire debt. We also require an additional $3350 to furnish the home with fan, lights, cots and an invertor (which can be used during power cuts) to help children study without interruptions. The children are forced to use the candles when the current goes off and during the exams they find it very difficult to study. Hence we require your help.

We request you to continue supporting us till the project  can raise $24000 ti repay the loans and $ 3350 to furnish the home. Kindly spread words about the project to your friends and relatives and we need your continuous moral support to run the home.

Thanking you

Dear Donors,

Thank you all for helping us in constructing the building for our children. The children and our team are happy to see the spacious rooms that provides ample ventilation and lighting to the children.

The children are happily and conveniently sleeping now. Now what they want is more tubelights and fans and cots and beds. They need 6 tubelights and 6 fans, the cost of which works out to $300. The children are also in need of an invertor which can give them continuous power supply (We have frequent powercuts in this part of the state and this interrupts the children's studies). This might cost around $800.  If the children can be provided with two tier cots then the home becomes fully furnished, which will cost around $2250.

Listen to the words of Sathya who is studying in 9th standard now. "I am so happy to see the big room and to have a dressing room and separate bed room for the girls now. This can now accomodate many more children like me who lost their father or mother. If we can have more tubelights and fans we will be very happy."

The construction of the additional building cost us $49000 (We had to spend more money than budgetted as we had to wait for donations and to raise loans for the construction. This time gap resulted in increase in the planned expenditure due to raise in the cost of construction materials and wages). We have provided the children with tubelights and fans to the minimum extent.

We request you to continue supporting us till the project is funded as we have raised loans to an extent of $24000. The money you donate will help us pay back the loans and provide the children with the requisite furnitures. Kindly spread words about the project to your friends and relatives and we need your continuous moral support to run the home.

Thanking you.

The children of Poonjolai have a bigger home now and are much happy.

The expanded building now has one more bedroom, study room, a recreation room, Warden's room and a dressing cum store room. We take this opportunity to thank all our donors for making this possible.

The home will be fully fit if it can have the enough number of tubelights (# 6) and fans (# 6). We also require an invertor which can give uninterrupted powersupply for the children during these hot days. This might cost $800 dollars. Also the children do not have cots and beds for sleeping. So if all these can be provided to them, the home becomes a fully furnished one.

Thank you dears for making this happen. We request your goodselves to continue supporting our project. You can also do this by spreading words to your friends and relatives and you know them better.

With regards
