SUPPORT THE EDUCATION OF A NEW HOPE CHILD
The Jeevan Jyothi School has become a Community School with rural children from surrounding small towns and villages coming to an English medium school. The fees are very moderate . £Because of the rural situation we have funded 3 school buses to bring children in for the day.
This knits our Children Community Centre with other children socially and the adjoining Sports Ground supported by a couple in Japan means children from these surrounding towns has a play area and competition with our children.
We need support for 5th Class children text books starting in the new Indian School year June 2017. The cost for the Class of 8 New Hope children is £1,025.
If you would like to support one of the children you can see the cost next to the child name. We are including a short bio-data of four children.
I/We would like to sponsor a child. Girl – Boy £128

WORKS FOR CHANGE THROUGH EDUCATION
We are planning for her to visit her grandmother in the different holidays in the hills nearby. The grandmother lives in a small hut and sells firewood in the town. We will send a food pack for her and Renuka so they can have food and time together. (Her brother opts to stay in the Community as the boys have sports – mainly cricket and have small projects as hobbies Renuka likes drawing and has joined in the Saturday afternoon art hobby
Kusuma enjoys a great friendship with all the girls. She is in the arts and crafts hobby group on Saturday afternoon.
An education grant will ensure she will grow up and have both knowkedge and the opportunity later to skill training.
His father went away for weeks and actually died in a AIDS Care Hospice. When neighbours knew all this they reported that the boy could be ‘AIDS too” and he was restricted from school until tested and found negative. His mother became mentally unstable and lost her work. She was found several times times wandering late at night near the beach and unable to talk. She had a ration card in her ‘bag’. Taken home they saw that Karkith was not cared for and had been going house to house begging food and skipping school. The Child % Mother Committee found him and
they requested us to care for him. He took several months to settle with us but is now family. He is doing very well in school, plays games and in a cricket team. The photograph was taken by me as he came back from the dining room after breakfast. I asked why he was sitting. He had lost his ‘best marble’.
Education is his future and skill training will set him for life. He will be in 5 th class in the Indian new school year in 2017
have seen pictures of how women balance pots on their head – most are water pots.His father died of an AIDS opportunistic infection and then life got very difficult for his widow. There was not family support and while she could she did casual labor. Eventually going to a Government Hospice where she passed away. Hari Babu ‘disappeared as the ‘room landlord’ emptied the place and he just wandered here and there in the neighborhood.
Hari Babu has more than settled down! – He acts like he has been here for ages and knows his way around the whole community and the trees to climb. We will assess his school level and adjust in June. You can see he is already into the arts hobby class
This photograph was taken on the day he arrived, post a hair cut!
Well dressed in new school uniform, packed breakfast. Going to his room to study That is what he told me when I asked why he had a meal box with him coming from the dining room. I think it might have been a mid-morning snack!
