Impact

Every monthly donation helps educate more girls like Lipika

Lipika Murthy belongs to the lower-income group. Her father passed away due to cardiac arrest and mother is a tailor by profession. Her mother's meager income is not enough to cover both family expenses as well as education. Lipika is studying in Grade 7 at Mohre Public School, Bangalore.

She was enrolled in the sponsorship program to enable her to continue her studies. With this financial support, her mother is sure that Lipika will complete her education. She is good at studies, enjoys singing and has many friends in school. The mother is thankful for the education support given to Lipika.

With a little financial support from donors like you to pay fees, children like Lipika get saved from discontinuing their education.

During the lockdown, the parents of some of the sponsored children lost their jobs. This harsh situation left them with no food to eat. Such families were provided with provisions. Later, their children were encouraged and advised to concentrate on online classes. The principal of the school, CDT teachers, and the sponsored children were constantly contacted to understand how the learning curve during the lockdown was. The children visited the school on alternate days and they were given homework and assignments to complete. The children have been eagerly waiting to get back to school and meet their friends. The sponsored children attended a Zoom Call and the objective of this interaction was to develop a close rapport with the sponsored children. The children's emotional status was checked to understand how they were coping with online classes. Along with that, kids were asked to voice out the concerns that they were facing. The kids were also motivated to pick up a new skill like drawing and painting. The principal was then contacted to understand the children's performance in tests. On the call, the children were also sensitized about hygiene and health. The children were taught the importance of wearing a mask while going out. In the feedback collected from the principal and the children, it was understood that the children are following the online classes well. It was also gathered that some of the children have invested time picking up a hobby like drawing, painting, etc. A meeting was held with CDT teachers to understand how the school is engaging the sponsored children if the teachers could connect with the families of the sponsored children, what were the challenges faced by these teachers. A general response that was received was that most students do not have a smartphone if their family members were working. Since most students have basic phones, the teachers would give children assignments.   The interaction with these teachers pushed them to have a conversation with the sponsored children's' families and find out their issues that were in turn flagged to VCT. Provision kits and dry ration was provided to some families. The recent cyclones affected several families, leaving their houses wrecked. Two such families were identified and provided clothes and blankets.
