GG Quarterly Report
Dear Donor friends of little hearts orphanage from around the globe
Greetings to you all. We hope all is well there with you.
I am happy and glad to submit GG Quarterly report with good news.
Our boys Anil, Karthik, Dinesh, Prasanna and Moshe at little hearts orphanage passed Intermediate (college) and Xth class (High School) with very good marks. Karthik stood school 3rd in his Xth class examinations. Our boys achieved this great success with your kind and continuous donations. Please accept our sincere thanks and I humbly request you all of respected donors kindly continue and raise more donations to continue their education and to make them to stand on their own feet and to make them self-sufficient.
I am glad to inform you that our 3 boys Charan, Anil and Surendra did well in their exams. Charan, who has been supported by the River Fund stood college second in his exams with 900 marks out of 1000 Marks in Intermediate studies (college). Now he is preparing to get seat in top colleges of Andhra Pradesh run by Government to continue his Degree studies. He will be having entrance examination on 28th of May.
Anil, who got 832 marks out of 1000 marks. He is also preparing for EAMCET (Engineering and Medical Common Entrance Test) to get seat in Civil Engineering College like Ramu. He will also be having EAMCET examination on 12th May. Another boy Surendra also passed first year Intermediate with 365 marks out of 500.
Ramu who is studying Civil Engineering recently completed his 3rd year and now he is in final year of Civil Engineering. He will be the very first fruit of LHO and be given farewell to leave LHO and to find a job in construction field. He is studying very hard to achieve his goal.
This academic year Lakshmi and Tulasi (girls) would be coming to Xth class and they must pass then only they will be enter into college education.
On 4th of June, Mr. Reddy, representative of GG visited LHO but at the time of visit no children were at LHO due to summer vacation and some repairs have to be carried out at LHO. I asked Mr. Reddy to come and visit once again in the months of June/July. He accepted my request and promised to visit LHO in the month of July.
We have already been receiving phone calls from different parts of Nellore for new admissions at LHO. For every academic year we have been receiving several requests from mostly from single mothers for admissions to their girls and boys. But due to lack of space we are taking children those who are really eligible. Our priority always like this, first preference would be given to full orphans, second preference would be given to single mother, third preference would be given to father less and last priority would be given to poorest of the poor children of parents.
We have put an order to the supply back to school packs to the suppliers who supply school bags, note books, pens and pencils etc., on wholesale price. We buy all the school materials every year from wholesale suppliers in Vijayawada which is 350 kms. away from Nellore. By doing like this we save money on bags, note books, pens and pencils. Next week I will be in Vijayawada to collect the Back to School Packs.
If any potential donors from any country interested to come forward to donate to buy land and construction of buildings to feed and accommodate more children, we are very happy to work with them transparently. Because of poverty single illiterate mothers are suffering and struggling like anything to feed, accommodate and raise their kids and wanted to make their children educate and stand on their own feet, Almost all the phone calls we receive from single illiterate mothers from surrounding villages of Nellore and neighboring district Prakasham. Just now when I am typing this GG quarterly report now also I received a phone call from a woman called Vijayamma from Kavali 55kms, away from Nellore requested for admissions in LHO. Like this, I regularly received number of phone calls from unknown single illiterate mothers through their literate relatives and village heads.
On 16th May we received fund 997,914 Indian Rupees from the River Fund. With this fund we can use to feed and accommodate 45 children nearly 10 months. As I reported in my previous GG reports we are still paying less to full, part time and tutors when compared with other National and International NGOs and Charities. From this academic year we should raise salaries of full, part time staff and tutors. We spent funds very wisely and we never compromise in saving funds. There is no misuse or diversion of funds for other purposes.
See you all with more news in my next GG Quarterly report.
Friends, this is C.P.Kumar reporting from HEARTS to the Global Giving through the River Fund.
God bless you all.
