Wish you are doing well and in good health.

The new building is the only place free to conduct important charitable activities in Rajgangpur suburb areas.

In the slum areas disease and illness are immediate issues. People suffer and die due to sickness and without proper health care. We have realized the need and organized a week long (6 days) campaign and trained 200 women from slum areas. This program is called Mahila Arogya Samiti which focuses on prevention of the disease and taking care of common illnesses. This training is critically needed to educate them about sanitization and other requirements to prevent the disease.

We are proud to be funded by Mr. CDMO (Chief District Medical Officer) to conduct such activities though our Empowerment center or building. We have selected five suburb areas to focus. These 200 trained women will run various health awareness programs. We are committed to mitigate health issues in this locality.

200 women got trained in our partially built house. To run a week long program with so many people we need to finish the building construction. We need at least USD 9, 500 to move forward. Completion of the building will help us to run such programs. This building is pivotal to conduct such great work under one roof.

We need to finish following items

Two side verandahs,

One Side room,

Three Toilets,

Toilet safety tank,

One bore well,

Please support to finish this building so that we can do more such great work already in pipe line.

Thanks for your great help.

Wish you a great Thanksgiving holiday week ahead.

We have achieved various milestones in terms of activities and in the construction of the building since our last reporting.

High impact activities were conducted in last months in our newly built building that you will definitely appreciate.

  • We helped to create bank accounts for 200 poor people and deposited Rs 12 for each of their bank account. Now they are qualified for accidental medical coverage of upto 1 Lakh Rs. from Govt of India. This was a big issue, when they involve accidental medical treatment. This effort was highly appreciated by local people.
  • CDMO (Chief District Medical Officer) selected our organization to provide disease prevention training. This training will help to improve the health and sanitization for 14 slum areas consisting of about 7000 People. We will provide training to handful leaders from each slum area. Once they are trained we will scale those to all local people from that area. We are expecting greater result out of our effort.  

Building Construction Progress

Friends, wish you will have great fun in upcoming thanksgiving holiday time.

This is a best time to provide reporting about how our 25 children doing in SANTI home. 

  • I wish all of our 25 children to be successful in life as well as in education. They go to local public school and compete with other students. This is a better way to compare how our children are performing.
  • As mentioned in previous reports we have a few very successful and topper students from SANTI. We are proud of them and wish to have more students like that.
  • Few others were struggling in their school, so recently we hired an experienced teacher. He is great at providing homework to be completed by each student and then verifying their work. We hope this will help to train each child and evaluate ways to improve them.
  • Our wardens maintain a daily schedule that children follows. We are in the process to teach a disciplined life to our children. In the morning they do the homework from the Private teacher or school and the go to school. After school, they play and then in the evening get tutoring help.
  • On Children’s day SANTI students performed a group dance and a solo performance.  

We are successful in operation due to your continued support. Please donate in this holiday period so that we can help better to these children.

Dear Friends, 

Thanks for your continued support to SANTI. Truly the SANTI building is a masterpiece for our children as well as for our organization. because,

  • We are able to run the sewing classes inside the partially finished building.
  • Recently we organized a 3 days leadership program geared towards local youth under Nehru Yuva Kendra Program. This was not been possible in past because of expensive rental for such a suitable venue.
  • We also conducted a 3 days workshop on health and sanitization for local women by Mahila Arogya Samiti (MAS). This was highly praised by Chief District Medical Officer (CDMO).
  • SANTI is also requested to conduct a 7 days Health Worker Training Program and we are looking forward to organize this in near future.

   So far, we have finished the interior and exterior plaster for 4 rooms, 2 toilets with fittings, one Kitchen with utility provision, doors and windows in main rooms. But we still need to complete the construction to unlock the best potential.

   We need your support to finish verandah or patio work from bottom to top, water tanks, Toilet safety tank, staircase, remaining doors and windows, electrical fittings, plastering, plumbing, painting etc.

    Without your support we couldn’t have achieved this masterpiece and without your continued future support we cannot finish this noble venue please come forward to donate.
