Thank you for changing Surya's life!

By John Sparks | President, India Partners

Dear Friend,

I am so thankful for your generosity! Your gifts are making it possible for people with disabilites to succeed.

Surya is currerntly a computer student living in the hostel who has leg deformity due to Polio. He is intelligent and studies well, but he is very timid and self-conscious. He was very nervous when he first joined the computer training program and moved into the hostel.

Every month he would want to go home for the weekend and invariably he will not come back on Monday as planned. He would take a few days more leave just to stay at home with his mother, and we worried he might not come back to the program at all.

But there seems to be a slow change in him after joining the computer training program. He started responding in the theory classes.  He enthusiastically participated in sports and was overjoyed when he won. He said, “It is a great feeling to win for the first time in a sporting event, thank you for the opportunity!” His confidence level also went up. And in March when he went home for the weekend, for the first time he came back as promised on Monday morning.

You changed Surya's life and gave him confidence to be himself! There are many other students with disabilites who need the same opportunity, and I hope you'll consider continuing changing lives.

Thank you again,
