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.
