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.
