November 21, 2013 - Aariya, the ever so smiling and cute little boy is in Upper Kindergarten school. He likes to go to school every day and enjoys learning alphabets, rhymes and numbers. He likes to dance, sing songs, and plays cricket with his peers. Although he lives in a small improvised house in the village and one can see poverty at the very face of seeing the house, he has many things to feel happy about his village that has a river with mountain, trees and agricultural fields everywhere. Aariya’s father is a farm laborer and the mother a housewife. The child’s father is able to earn $40.00 a month and that amounts to the family living in below poverty condition. This state of affairs invariably affects the growth of the children who tend to go without three times meal, proper clothing and educational needs. Aariya has been identified for sponsorship assistance that will provide for him one time nutritious food every day. He will also have a caregiver to monitor his health, growth and development.

Abhi is studying well in primary school and enjoys going to school every day. The government has certified Abhis’s family as the most backward class of people. Being in generational poverty, the parents now have come to the realization that their children would at least need to get good education in order for a better tomorrow. However, the child’s father, being a roadside cobbler with an uncertain income of $2.00 - $3.00 a day, finds it very hard to provide for sufficient food for the children, and towards the costs involved in their education. With the sponsor’s support Abhi would have access to good education, nutritious food, health care facilities and a caretaker at his service to give tuitions in addition to his school education. Sponsorship support for Abhi would help retain the smile on his face.

January 1, 2008 - Bala is a playful little boy, enjoying the company of his younger brother and friends, spending time playing games, which is his only source of entertainment. The colony where Bala lives is full of families like his who live in tents. Most people, no matter how poor, would like to have at least a television set or a radio at home and would somehow manage to buy one, but Bala’s family has nothing except for a few clothes and a few utensils. The parents are uneducated workers who could not make a good life for themselves; neither can they provide one for their children. Bala is waiting for a sponsor’s support, which is his only hope to experience any kind of joy. As you support Bala, the childcare staff will take the child into their fold and at the care center, he will benefit from the opportunities to discover a meaningful life, to fill his stomach, to learn, to grow physically nourished and to build a foundation that can add value to his future.

Bhavani - 162/CBCC/MRK/NLCP

December 15, 2012 - Bhavani is the third child among the four children in the house. Apart from the parents and the children, there is also an elderly grandmother in the house to be cared for. The family of seven depends on the single, meager and inconsistent earnings of the father. Their house is a small tent, therefore, there are no rooms, no water, no toilet facilities and no electricity supply. It is a pitiable life for all the seven members as there are so many mouths to feed but there is so little money to live on. The father is an agricultural laborer who works in fields while the mother is a homemaker. With so many dependents, having a proper meal a day for each member in itself is a challenge apart from other daily expenses or medical needs. For this family, your sponsorship support will be a miracle and the childcare center will be a blessing because Bhavani will be able to enjoy at least one wholesome meal unlike the situation at home and there will be caregivers in the childcare center who will provide her with extra tuitions to boost her studies and give her the right spiritual guidance.

It is a poverty stricken family who live in a small house with minimum facilities. The child’s father is a farm laborer for wages up to $ 2.50 in a day. Availability of jobs is seasonal and fluctuating and hence, the family has been struggling to have the wholesome meal every day and meeting the other necessities has indeed been very hard. Dhanshika is very enthusiastic about going to school every day and is a friendly child to move about with peers. She enjoys playing hide and seek and loves to eat grapes. She will be greatly encouraged to come under the umbrella of the sponsorship program, where she would get access to nutritious food and snacks every day.

Durgaiah - 166/CBCC/MRK/NLCP

June 14, 2009 - Durgaiah is a bundle of talents like dancing, singing and running. He is the middle child with two sisters and a special one as he is the son of the family who will bear the family responsibilities in the future. His parents who are laborers working for the plastic manufacturing unit situated a kilometer away from their house. The tent that the family stays in only shields them a bit from the heat but in the cold and the rain it only acts as a shelter and nothing else. The income is beyond insufficient for them to even fill their stomachs every day. Durgaiah goes to a government school where English is never spoken or taught, and the only language of communication is the native language. With the level of teaching that is imparted in his school, the child would never be able to have a good foundation in his studies and consequentially will not acquire any professional qualification for himself in the future. For Durgaiah to enjoy his childhood like a normal child and not pay the price of poverty, your sponsorship alone can make a world of difference. Your decision to reach out to this child will be a life-changing one for Durgaiah and a gratifying one for you as you will see him metamorphose out of helplessness into empowerment wherein the childcare center will nurture him, groom him, educate him with the help of extra classes and mold him to become the best that he can be.

However, poverty has been the hallmark of Indian villages and Gokulnath’s family is no exception to it. The child’s father is just a farm laborer for daily wages of not more than $2.00 to $3.00.

Jeet - 095/CBCC/CTK/NLCP

Jeet - 095/CBCC/CTK/NLCP

November 13, 2014 - The word ‘Jeet’ in most of the north Indian languages means ‘victory’ or ‘success’. Amidst the life of lack and struggle, Jeet’s parents certainly wish for their child to have a life of success and victory. Jeet is studying in pre-school and he has two sisters older than him. His parents strive hard to bring up the children and provide for their education. The child’s father is a cobbler who sits in a street corner to mend or polish shoes and foot wears for a paltry sum of earnings. The child’s mother would try to make up for any loss of an income by working as a maid servant, especially during rainy seasons and inclement weather conditions where her husband cannot make it up for the day’s income. It has become a norm for the children and the parents to skip between meals due to the lack of income. Living in a slum has deprived the family of a decent house, proper sanitation, electrical and water facilities. India Transformed’s sponsorship program aims to put Jeet on the path of success by assuring assistance with his education and at least one good meal in a day, access to better health care and a care giver to closely monitor his growth and development. With the sponsor’s love and care there is every assurance for Jeet to be victorious in his life.

Her parents, being daily wage workers cannot afford even the most basic facilities required to lead a normal life. Their tent with a few clothes and a few utensils is all they have with no furniture, no appliances and barely any possessions. Kasturi goes to a very poor government school but in vain as it only keeps her occupied without making her knowledgeable or productive. Even if she does manage to learn something she might soon be forced to drop out of school as her parents might consider their sons’ education more important. You, the sponsors, are the only ones who can bless Kasturi’s life. Through your sponsorship, Kasturi will receive nourishment, extra classes and good counsel from caregivers who will look out for her well-being and prepare her for a better future.

Pullaiah’s parents got married very young, at an age when most adults would be busy building their careers.

Pullaiah goes to a government school where there is a dearth of infrastructure, facilities and hygiene. He is not even taught the basics, nor does he receive proper nourishment which is why your sponsorship is a boon that can play a vital role in laying a proper foundation for his childhood. The contribution that you make towards his nutritional and educational and spiritual development will be the only aid that he will ever receive to make his future better than his present and past.

Raghu - 173/CBCC/MRK/NLCP

October 2, 2008 - Raghu is an adorable child, soft-spoken and gentle, inspiring you with his smile despite his heart wrenching physical condition. He is specially-abled and for him to move around he either needs crutches to walk or he has to move on four limbs, leaning forward with his palms on the ground and without bending his knees, slowing dragging his legs while using his hands to move forward. It takes him a while to climb even a few steps and to balance himself before he stands erect. While other children run around and play their favorite games, Raghu struggles to move around and yet smiles through every step of his ordeal. He keeps himself content doing a little bit of singing and playing simple games that are possible for him. Raghu has two younger sisters who are healthy. This child awaits the love and compassion of a sponsor who can offer him the gift of hope. With your aid, Raghu will have something to make him smile with joy, a tasty and nutritious meal every day, extra classes to help him improve in his studies, a platform to showcase his abilities while discovering that he is as normal as everyone else and the motivation to move forward without letting his physical challenges hold him back.

His father, mother, elder brother and elder sister are occupants of a makeshift tent. Both parents are laborers in a factory that manufactures plastic, but both their earnings put together are barely enough to buy enough food for all the five members at home. They have to make do with their humble dwelling in the bitter cold and the burning heat. There is no toilet in the house, therefore the father and the sons have to take a bath in the open with a small pot of water while the mother and daughter have to use a small enclosure covered with a long cloth all around, supported by wooden sticks and no roof, just enough to save their dignity. Challenges confront them at every step of the day right from how they are going to make enough sales that day to how they are going to buy food for the day. Your sponsorship for this child will bring him blessings like a healthy meal a day, tuitions to make him progress at school and care for his overall development and upliftment.

Ramya Sri - 167/CBCC/MRK/NLCP

May 14, 2016 - Ramya Sri is studying in pre-school. She has an older sister and an infant brother. Ramya Sri and her siblings are growing up amidst poverty and deprivation. The father just cannot afford even a small hut other than the one that is a makeshift hutment. The community which she lives in does not have any basic amenities. The men have to bathe in the open with a small bucket of water while the women have to make do with small enclosures covered by cloth and supported by sticks with no roof. While many children of her age have the privilege of playing with toys and dolls, all that Ramya Sri has are the twigs and some discarded plastic items. The child’s father and the mother are laborers for a plastic recycling unit and their daily wages put together are around $4.00 a day, which are too meager to make ends meet. The child’s mother has a hard time bringing up her children with good food, good clothing, and proper health care. As a sponsored child, Ramya will be able to have access to nutritious food and evening snacks every day, besides that, she would also be assisted with her education and health care. Your decision to offer a helping hand as a sponsor would go a long way in shaping the future of the child.

Rani - 123/CBCC/ABR/NLCP

Rani - 123/CBCC/ABR/NLCP

June 13, 2010 - Rani is the oldest among three sisters. Rani is in primary school and so are her two sisters. Rani is a good athletic runner, very fond of keeping parrots at home, likes to eat mangoes and grapes and is proud of a couple of coconut trees around her house. The village that she lives in is a beautiful one with mountain ranges, a small river and plenty of agricultural fields around. Her parents do the hard labor of loading sand at the barren river. They will not have jobs during the rainy season because the river will flow in full swing and they would be unable to load sand from the river. If not for the child’s father and mother going out to work and earning $ 3.00 or 4.00 in a day, break-fast or a meal in a day would be questionable. Rani and her sisters promptly go to school, innocent of their family’s situations. Rani is such an enthusiastic and a clever student who can really go on to become an educated person to stand by her parents in the years to come. What she would need is a sponsor at this time to love, encourage and support her with her education and endeavors. Through Sponsorship, Rani will have access to nutritional food, educational supplies, and tuitions after school hours and medical care.

The child’s father and the mother both work as daily wage laborers in a plastic manufacturing company. Their wages are so low that they cannot even afford to live in a solid house and are forced to make a humble tent their home. As they belong to a lowly caste named ‘the scheduled caste’, they are deprived of their dignity along with facing societal pressure of bringing up three girls, protecting them in their unsafe environment and saving for the girls’ future. Amidst their troubled and impoverished lives, their only hope for a meaningful and dignified life is a sponsor’s kind support. Your compassion will give Renuka a life way better than what she is living now in which she will be a part of the childcare center relishing at least one wholesome meal every day, receiving care and help in studies from a caretaker and benefiting from the spiritual counseling to help shape her future.

Rohit - 093/CBCC/CTK/NLCP

Rohit - 093/CBCC/CTK/NLCP

January 7, 2014 - Rohit is a little boy in pre-school. It is quite a large family of seven with three daughters and two sons for the parents. Rohit is the last among the children and so, he is most loved one in the family. The house that the family lives in is just a hut with minimal facilities that a slum dwelling can afford. The child’s father is a cobbler at a street corner, whose earning always depends on a passerby approaching him for mending shoes, polishing or repairing foot wears. His small earnings at the end of the day often fluctuate. In order to make ends meet, the child’s mother works as a maid and does mopping, dish washing, laundry, etc. However, their irregular income barely even matches the needs of the family. As a result, the family lives in poverty all the time and eventually children are the most affected. Except for one sibling, the rest of the children are school going and it invariably is a burden for the parents to meet the educational costs and it won’t be too long that the children would drop out of school to help supplement the family’s income. Through the sponsorship support at least Rohit’s education will be secured and he would also enjoy nutritious food every day; Rohit would also be provided proper health care and taught social and moral values by the dedicated care takers.

Sahi - 098/CBCC/CTK/NLCP

Sahi - 098/CBCC/CTK/NLCP

December 3, 2014 - Five year old Sahi is just beginning his pre-school. The child belongs to the poorest of poor sections of the cobblers community who live in a slum in a make shift house. The child’s father is a road side cobbler, who sits on the pavement and wait for customers who approach him for mending of foot wears. After a day’s long work he would be able to gather an income of around $ 2.50 or about $ 50 a month, way too small an income for the maintenance of the family for the entire month. The child’s mother is a homemaker. Sahi and his infant sister are deprived of proper nourishment and clothing. The children are seemingly under nourished. Assistance through sponsorship is the only hope for Sahi where he could enjoy nutritious meal every day with snacks or health drink; at the childcare center he would not only receive food but would also be taught moral values by a specially appointed teacher. Sahi will be cared for his health, education and general wellbeing.

The child’s mother is a housewife and feels so helpless about not being able to contribute anything financially. Poverty and deprivation of needs have become a norm. The child’s parents feel that imparting education to their children would make a lot of difference compared to their own lives. Saranrajan looks forward to find someone who could give him the love, support and encouragement as his sponsor. Through sponsorship, Saranrajan will have continual opportunity for school education, every day food to give him good nourishment, tuitions after school hours and a caregiver to be closely working with him to help him grow up well in all aspects.

The child’s father is a daily wage earner in a plastic recycling factory and his daily wages being $3.00 a day is all that’s available for the family’s food and other expenses, which means skipping a meal or breakfast is an everyday affair. The child’s mother is a homemaker. The family also cannot afford a house and their present one is more of a dungeon than a makeshift house, therefore their poverty is quite evident. Satya Moulali is now studying in primary school. A sponsor’s support ensures nutritious food every day and extra tuitions to upgrade his scholastic performances. Satya Moulali dreams of becoming an educated person in his community and that’s the dream of his parents too. Support through India Transformed! will render the child’s future bright.

July 29, 2009 - The little boy Selwin comes from a remote village that’s surrounded by beautiful hills and a river tributary close to his house and agricultural fields all around. However, the life of Selwin’s family is just a paradox as their life is not as beautiful as the fauna and flora of the village. The child’s father is a farm laborer, who cannot afford a proper meal in a day for his children and a decent house to live in with his wages as low as $ 2.50 a day. The child’s mother is a housewife who feels helpless about not being able to care for the children better. Although poverty is apparent, the parents do not forgo children’s education. Selwin and his older sisters are studying in school. “India Transformed!” desires to offer help to Selwin through the sponsorship program, which will give him access to nutritious food and evening snacks every day, health care services, and educational supplies.

November 21, 2015 - Sonali is in pre-school; she has a little brother and that makes it for a small family of four including the parents. The child’s parents are the slum dwellers, who live by hard labor with wages so low that do not allow them to escape poverty. Sonali’s father does the hard labor of sweeping and cleaning drainages. His salary as a laborer has been too meager to make ends meet. The child’s mother cares for the children at home and runs the family with whatever little her husband brings home after his own expenses. Low income has impacted the children in a way that they do not get to have nutritious food and good clothing. Poverty in the family is deep rooted and if not for some external source of help, the plight of the children would also be the same as parents. Sonali deserves a better life and your sponsorship support could help provide opportunities of continued schooling, good food, health care and spiritual growth.

The slum-dwelling doesn’t provide for proper amenities like pure drinking water, sanitation and electricity. The child’s father and mother earn very meager wages as laborers in a local plastic recycling industry. The children hardly get to have nutritious food, proper and clean clothing, educational needs and health care. India Transformed! would like to include Srilakshmi into the sponsorship program. The sponsorship support is sure to bring about positive changes in the child’s life because the child will have access to nutritious food, health care, educational supplies and teaching staff to care for her progress and development by giving her tuitions every day. Receiving an opportunity for education and a promised future through a loving sponsor would be a great blessing and would help give her an identity.

Srinivas - 153/CBCC/MRK/NLCP

April 19, 2013 - Srinivas, the little boy of primary school, is energetic and quite enthusiastic about studies and extracurricular activities. He loves to dance and play with his peers. He has a little brother studying in grade 2. The child’s parents are illiterate village folks who lead a life of hand-to-mouth every day. The plight of the children is such that they do not get a square meal a day properly. Srinivas and his brother hardly get their necessities like clothing, medical care and educational supplies. The child’s father works for a small plastic recycling unit as a laborer and earns wages at $2.50 a day which is too meager to support the sustenance of a family. The child’s mother is a housewife and maintains the family with great difficulty. India Transformed! has identified the child as a very deserving case for sponsorship assistance and in order that he will have access to one-time nutritious meal and an evening snack every day. He will also have an appointed tuition teacher to help his performance to be better in school. IT! recommends sponsorship support for the child Srinivas who will emerge worthy of the support and come up in life. A sponsor’s care for Srinivas will make a lot of difference in his life and future.

Suvitha - 131/CBCC/ABR/NLCP

June 1, 2010 - Suvitha comes from a humble background of a farmer’s family who live in a remote village. It is a small family of five, which include the child’s two sisters and her parents. The families that live in villages are beset with poverty, deprivation, poor housing conditions and under employment. Suvitha’s family is no different. The child’s father is a laborer in the agricultural fields for wages as low as $ 40.00 or $50.00 a month. Rainy seasons are the most trying period for jobs and frequent starvations in a family cannot be ruled out. Suvitha is a studious child and never misses school. Poverty should not come in the way of Suvitha’s education and which is why we desire to bring Suvitha under the sponsorship program. The love and support of a sponsor will not only help with continued schooling but will also help her have nutritious meal every day and a specially appointed teacher to help with her education through evening tuitions at the childcare center. A sponsor’s encouragement will go a long way in presenting a better future for Suvitha.

Tulasi - 174/CBCC/MRK/NLCP

January 1, 2010 - Tulasi is as tender as the plant that she is named after. The plant ‘Tulsi” is called Holy Basil in English. She is the middle child at home with an elder brother and a younger sister. Tulasi is a cheerful and vibrant child. She is also the boldest and the most confident among the three siblings, possessing a lot of potential to be an intelligent person when she grows up. The father and the mother are uneducated and unskilled workers with no qualifications or alternatives to their labor work. They cannot provide Tulasi a better life, and as a result of this her childhood and teenage years might be lost. Your sponsorship can be the deciding factor of whether there is any hope for Tulasi’s future. The support extended by you towards Tulasi’s nutritional, educational and spiritual development will have a significant impact on her life. Backed by your love, she will not land in a child marriage and instead will have the chance to make the right choice for herself through good counsel and the power of education.

Venkateswarlu - 147/CBCC/MRK/NLCP

January 1, 2011 - Venkateswarlu comes from a small family of four that includes his little brother and the parents. Venkateswarlu is studying in primary school. The family lives in a slum in the most difficult circumstances. Low income and poverty apart, slum-dwelling is a hard life to live with. The child lives in a small makeshift hut that can easily get destroyed by a gust of strong wind. The child’s father cannot afford a better house as his income has been too meager to make ends meet. As a laborer in a plastic recycling unit, his wages are nothing more than $2.50 a day which means the family is only able to meet its bare needs. Venkateswarlu hardly has the educational supplies that could enable him to get along well with his schooling nor does he have access to better and quality food to stay strong and healthy. Here comes the role of India Transformed! to help the child have nutritious food every day and for him to have better educational support by supplying educational needs and extra tuitions through the childcare project, which will take care of the child’s growth and development in all aspects. Your kind sponsorship is essential to achieve the end result of bringing about a change in the child’s life.

Vinnarasi - 130/CBCC/ABR/NLCP

October 3, 2014 - Vinnarasi is the last among the three siblings and no doubt she is the most loved one in the family. She has two sisters and a brother. All the children are school going and Vinnarasi is now in pre-school. She loves to water their small flower garden in the backyard and gets delighted to watch them grow and flowering. Vinnarasi comes from a beautiful village that’s surrounded by series of hills and a river. The child’s father is a farm laborer for daily wages that has been too meager to sustain the needs of this large family of eight that also include the child’s grandparents. The child’s mother and grandparents take care of the children at home. The children don’t get to have enough food and other necessities met; despite the situation at home they don’t miss their schooling. Determination of the children and the parents towards education is evident in the children’s punctuality to school. India Transformed! would like to encourage Vinnarasi with support towards continued education. A sponsor coming into the life of Vinnarasi to care for her would mean that she will have access to one time nutritious food every day, a teacher to help with her studies, educational supplies and health care. An opportunity which she would cherish a lifetime.
