Educating and Empowering Orphan Children

Kalai and Kani are sisters from poor disadvantaged background. Both live with their mother, who works as a coolie worker and supports the family. Their father left the family when both were very small. Kalai and Kani are both studying in government school and Kalai is now in her 10th standard. Kalai's every day routine is cooking, washing clothes, cleaning vessels and cleaning up the house before she goes to school. Her mother leaves very early to work  and so she also has to take up the responsibility of looking after her younger sister too.  Kalai is very determined and  very positive about becoming a teacher and also aims at scoring more than 450/500 in her upcoming 10th public exams. She and her younger sister received the educational support from Buds of Christ.

It was a very happy moment for Ramya, child living with her father affected by HIV to go into class 11th in this academic year. Her father had lost hope in her, but the constant coaching at Buds of Christ by the peer volunteers and the staff throughout the year has helped her to pass her 10th standard. She was more happier to receive the educational support and expressed
"I am greatly thrilled i am in new class with new bag, books and uniforms. I also have to thank the team at Buds of Christ for coaching me during the holidays and equipping me to pass in my 10th public exams and I am very happy about it".

The educational support that included, School bags, two sets of uniform, stationery kits and note books and a water bottle was distributed to 100 orphan deserving children for the academic year 2015-16.

EMPOWER Orphan Children and STOP SCHOOL DROPOUTS by Supporting Educational Kits

As you are aware, Buds of Christ reaches primarily to orphan children who have lost one or both parents in Namakkal and Salem districts. Since 2009, our concentrated effort towards empowerment of orphan children has enabled us to see 43 girls and 22 boys enter into colleges as first graduates in their generation without being a school dropout. All this were possible because you were behind us in our mission to empower children.

Every academic year brings new hopes and dreams for children. Currently we are serving 170 orphan children and we need your support to STOP SCHOOL DROP OUTS among Orphan children. Around 120 orphan children are living in most difficult circumstances under the care of aged grandparents or poor widow mothers. This year we have intended to encourage 120 most deserving orphan children by supporting Educational Kits that consists of School Uniforms, School bags, Notebooks, study guides, Stationary kits and Water bottles. 

Each kit costs Rs. 1200/-, hence we need (120 Orphan children X Rs 1200/- = Rs. 144,000). You can sponsor as many kits as is possible for you. Every donation you make has IT Tax Exemption under 80G.
