 A Child is happily going to school without sitting ideally at home.
Five year old Kamineni Sri Lakshmi is residing in the Edlapadu village of Guntur District, Andhra Pradesh. She had one elder sister. Her father Kondaiah is Agricultural labourer while her mother Kumari is daily labourer. Since their income is insufficient for their daily needs, her parents are unable to send their childre to school. That s why Sri Lakshmi is not going to school. Her sister is also going with her mother as daily labourer. When one of ASSIST volunteer met with the parents of Sri Lakshmi and was told them to send their dauthter to school instead of sitting ideally at home. When they were told that, they were not in a position to send their daughter to school due to their poor financial conditions. Then ASSIST volunteer convinienced to Sri Lakshmi s parents are willing to send Sri Lakshmi to the school and got admission in 1st class.. Since Sri Lakshmi has very much interest in studies, she felt very happy while going to school. She is goint regularly to school. She is studying well.
 
 Providing Sanitation facility in schools in order to get good health and hygiene to the school children.
In the Government school of Bollapalli, there is no sanitary facility. The students of these children used to go open defecation. They usually go into the forest for open defecation. The students of the school were faced many problems. Particularly, the girl students are not willing to go to the school due to lack of sanitary facilities. Very less children are used to attend the school. Those who are interested to go school, they usually consume less water which leads many health problems. Once ASSIST Coordinator has contacted to the Head master of the school. The school Head master requested to ASSIST to provide sanitary facility in their school. ASSIST has installed sanitary facilities in the school. Now the students of the school are feeling very happy. Especially girl students are feeling happy. After installation of sanitary facility in the school, more number of children are willing to come to the school. The parents of the children are also very happy. Now they are happily sending their children to the school.
 
 Providing clean water for better Health & Hygiene
Weavers ST colony is located close to Bay of Bengal. All the families belong to weavers community and they depend on master weaver for the raw material for weaving. There are also 67 weavers who belong to Backward Caste near to the last street. Villagers who are living at the end of the village have another possibility of getting water from B.C. colony but they do not allow these people to take water from their bore well as ST are lower caste. There are two bore wells in the village and one is installed by Panchayat and another one by Mandal Parishad. Both the bore wells are installed in the first street. Nevertheless, the drinking water problem is for the villagers who live at the end of the village i.e. for ST colony people. These ST (Scheduled Tribe) people are very much suffering for fetching the water from long distance. Due to severe problem, villagers approached ASSIST for a new bore well. Understanding the situation, ASSIST sanctioned to dig a bore well in a suitable place with the support received from Mr. Vidya Mahambare through Give India. This new bore well is provided near the house of Nakka Pothu Raj, so that bore well water can be utilized by 25 families not only for drinking but also for domestic use. After proving a bore well near the house of Nakka Pothu Raj, villagers are happy as their major problem is solved quickly. So villagers express their happiness and thanks to Mr. Vidya Mahambare and GIVE INDIA for solving the problem through ASSIST.
 
 story of Sandhya
Kumbha Sandhya is the third child in their family. They belong to scheduled caste. Their parents are working in a kiln. They are living in a small thatched house near the kiln. Sandya sisters are also working along with their parents. All the family members are going out for work and nobody was at home to do the domestic work. Hence, her parents stopped Sandhya’s education when she was studying 3rd class against her wish to continue education. ASSIST field staff come across this child during collecting data as part of baseline survey which is a regular process that Organization conducts every year to get the detailed information of the target communities. Accordingly the staff met the parents of Sandhya and briefed the importance of education and motivated them to send the children to school. As such Sandhya is brought to Residential complex being run by ASSIST. Now she is studying 4th standard, where she gets free education apart from food, clothing, school bag, learning material. Her health is also taken care by a health worker in the complex. The child is keep regular monitoring by staff of ASSIST. Now Sandhya and her parents are very happy of this support. They expressed their sincere thanks for this gesture.
