The Observation Home for girls located at Bhivandi, near Mumbai. there are arround 50 girls living in this orphnage. State government is providing grant @ of Rs. 635/- per child per month. This amount is very insufficient to meet the medical, educational and maintenance expenses of the children. When CSA heard about the insufficient grant and the struggle of the NGO to raise funds to meet the needs of the children, we decided to help them for Vocational Training.

CSA is running Tailoring Course at Observation Home girls, Bhivandi. These girls come from very different back grounds and different states. Sometimes they don’t even know how to write and read. Sangita is from very poor family and she studied up to 3rd std still she learned measurements and stitched caps for babies, baby frock and baby shirts. She is performing well. We have a plan to give advance course to her if she gets good marks in Basic Tailoring exam. This can be an opportunity for Sangita to earn in future and stand on her own feet. CSA made arrangement for tailoring machines, material for practice and all other needful equipment, thread, needle etc.This was not possible without your support.

We express our sincere thanks for your kind and generous funds. We also thank you for enabling CSA to help needy and under privileged children.
