Anu and Seetha are two orphan girls studying in the primary classes and under the care of their grandparents. Their father deserted them and their mother died when they were very small. Their grandfather has been bed ridden for the last 13 years after a stroke and the sole supporter for the children are their aged grandmother. Both the girls are also survivors of a chronic illness. They manage the household expenses through the old age pension scheme that comes through the social security scheme. The costs for bags, books and uniforms are a burden at the start of the academic year, which is now met through the educational support of Buds of Christ. This has helped the children go to school with wearing new uniforms and new bags and book like their other school mates.
Every academic year Buds of Christ provides support to ensure the girl children are in school and continue education and poverty should not be a hindrance to it. For 2019 academic year, Buds of Christ extended support to more than 60-orphaned girl children to light their lives and enable prevention of school dropouts.
