Help motivate children like Dhanam to go to school
Dhanam is an average student studying in grade 5 in the Government Middle School, Nachampatty. She is the only daughter to her parents who do not live together. She lives with her mother who is a daily wage labourer. She hails from a poor family where necessities like electricity are not common. This used to add to her struggle to complete her homework and score well in her exams despite spending most of her time studying.
She was referred to the Society for Poor People Development by one of their SHG members. Considering her educational level, she was enrolled in the Evening Study Center. Attending extra classes there helped her improve her handwriting and get better at her lessons. Regular tests conducted at the center helped her prepare better for her exams and score well. To make sure that she can complete her homework at night, SPPD also provided her a solar light through Mrs. Alice Doolan.
SPPD helps children like Dhanam to get better at school by giving them educational support. Donate to provide basic school materials to these children and help them continue their studies. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED.

About The Program
What the beneficiary gets
Society for poor people development (SPPD) works to improve the living conditions of underprivileged children in the economically backward communities of Tamil Nadu.
Children stay with their parents and go to the nearby government schools. In the evening they attend SPPD's Evening Study Centers. Their parents either work in nearby farms or are construction labourers and only be able to earn enough to feed their children. Inability to afford basic school materials like uniforms, stationary etc., creates an inferiority complex in the minds of these children and often acts as a barrier to their regular schooling. SPPD works with them by providing them the basic school materials and motivates them to perform better at school.
* Age group of the children - 9 to 13 years
* Grades in which the children are studying - Grade 5 to 7
* Number of children your donation will help for a year - 1

Supporting the rural children in need
Supporting the rural children in need
The various materials such as stationeries, footwear, school bag etc provided by Give India all went a long way in helping the children belonging to the Evening Study Centre (ESCs) here the entire year. These poor rural kids studying in various grades of middle school got benefited in many ways by the same. In the first place the need for them to often resort to the act of borrowing many of the materials such as pencil, pen and other stationeries from others could be effectively prevented.
Most of the educational materials provided free at the schools being very low in quality, especially the pencils and pens would get broken in a matter of few days. This used to force these less privileged children to borrow the same. Apart from fulfilling the physical need of educational materials their psychological wellbeing too has been taken care of in a big way by this support from Give India. The usual sense of inferiority complex that would haunt the poor rural kids of comparing themselves with the few privileged mates in their class rooms also could be overcome by them, as they need not have to borrow things from the fellow students.
Thus by helping to reduce the inferiority complex in their minds, the educational materials that they received throughout the academic year, the wholesome development of the poor children of the ESCs here has been taken care of . And hence the children and their family members feel indebted to Give India and its individual donors who have made this possible. "
