2011 Annual Report

December 27th


Dear Friends, Sponsors & Well wishers,


Uplift a Child International celebrated 11th year of service to less fortunate children in 2011 (2000 to 2011) during which 1,200 children have been benefited for school education. This was possible only with the help of our 350 dedicated sponsors, 55 Volunteers from east to west and friends from all over. Each year has been a great year for all of us where we could make a difference with our team work and individual contributions. As the saying goes, “Hard work always pays off at the end” and that is what we are seeing each year with exceptional success. Our time and efforts were never wasted all we could see are great results. That really makes all of us proud. 1,082 of our children are currently in schools (LKG – 10th grade), 16 of them in Junior college and 7 of them in Bachelors degree programs. We have 2 of our children in the top notch schools. One is in 4th year IIT Rourkee and the other one at NIIT Warangal.


Along with our success, we do have few failures. 0.05% of our children are not doing that well in their studies. They are dropping from schools due to family problems. Most of the drop-outs are generally from small towns as the parents are agricultural laborers and they move from place to place if they find a better job. That is impacting our children’s education and future. We do have a lot of plans on how to bring them back. But we need more money and time which we don’t have right now. It is our goal to resolve this in the days to come with everyone’s help.


Once again, we left NO child behind for education in 2011. We have a great hope in our future. The moment someone hears about us, they follow us and become a part of us to lead this noble mission. So far we have done well and continue to do so. The best we can say this year is, “We lead by example” and so is our organization.


A simple thank you is not enough for those who are working hard with their time and contribution. All we can say is welcome back and let’s serve till our last breath. Let’s add a new meaning to our existence with whatever little we can do while we still have life.


Merry Christmas for those who celebrate and Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year 2012




Thank you,


Sam & Rena Vonumu
