Children Home Update from India
Hello brothers and sisters,
We are so grateful for your kind support to the needy children. All the children are doing well in school. As every child has right to education for building their foundation. We had sent all our children to school even the little ones. The only exception is Sumit. As he was suffering from illness we were unable to admit him at that time. But as he had recovered from his illness, we will admit him to school next year. The final Examinations are approaching. They also participate in co–curricular activities in school.
It helps in developing their personality. And strengthen their learning and in today`s competitive world education is not enough, children should develop their overall characteristics. They are scoring good marks in their exams. Few of them do average performances but they are trying to work hard.
The children organize street theatre to aware people on the issue HIV/AIDS related stigma discrimination and on various contemporary social issues like environment, health and hygiene, preservation of safe drinking water. They also involve themselves in some social works. They do cultural programs in different areas to aware and encourage people who are socially excluded and living with diseases.
Urgent needs or problems we are having:
We are extending the girls dormitory to make rooms for more girls. We are also making a separate program hall for children activities and also renovating the Kitchen room. The works of construction is going on now. We now need few things for completion of the work such as furniture’s, electrical fixes. We need support for the immediate infrastructure, Library and Dining hall for children. It is an hour of need for children in growing up. They need Skill Development Training yearly which will help them in building their foundation. As English is the International language we need good tutor to teach them spoken English which would benefit them in their future. Children have keen interest in music so they want to learn new instruments and dance with the rhythm so we need more professional teachers in these fields for proper guidance.
