3. 3. Integrated School for 500 children in Snehalaya- We currently run a school for children with special needs with vocational training centre for 40 children in our “Snehalaya, meaning the home with love” at present. Expansion for second phase with construction of five more cottages for 40 more children will be complete by May 2008. Our present school will be able to provide for these added children in Snehalaya but not any more, however we want to establish an integrated school for 500 children on site in Snehalaya to provide education to the girls from surrounding villages as well to the resident children in Snehalaya, who remain un-educated otherwise undergoing oppression all their lives.
This year we will like to start construction of the building and establish this school as planned for third phase of Snehalaya to provide education for the resident children in Snehalaya as well for children from surrounding villages especially for girls from age six to eighteen with facilities for vocational and small scale industrial training. We intend to motivate parents to send their daughters to our school where they will be provided with food, uniforms, books along with education and vocational training as well incentives for starting an independent life on completing the school education. The total cost of this school project is £125,000. We have raised £35,000 so far and seek generous considerations and support from you to complete this school.
4. Snehalaya, hospital and hospice all at a cost of just £500K- At present there are 70 residents in Snehalaya including 38 children, mostly with disabilities and or sickness, where all live together as a family. It also has a poultry, bird house, Cow shed (Gaushala) with its gardens, farms, orchards spread out in an area of 20 acres now. Five more cottages are under construction expected to be ready by May 08, when we will be able to take 40 more disabled and destitute children there.
Since opening of Snehalaya- the home with love, on 23rd Aug.06, our hospice has been merged into Snehalaya, where all children live together as a family enjoying normal childhood undergoing education, care and treatment without any discrimination or isolation as required.
The thirty bedded hospital exists on site too to provide required health care services to the residents in Snehalaya as well for the people from surrounding villages. Our target for this year to complete by next year are to complete five more cottages and to establish the integrated school with vocational training facilities for 500 children. When completed in few years time, Snehalaya will have residential capacity for 200 children with its own hospital and an integrated school with vocational training facilities. All these services and facilities are open to local community and the people from surrounding villages for day care and or respite care as well to provide for the health care and educational needs.
To complete this work our “Sponsor a brick appeal” continues, whereby £5 or $10 or equivalent in any currency pays for one brick with your name on it. £1500 or $3000 will pay for a room and £5000 or $10,000 will provide for a house to accommodate 10 children with their carer parents or consider sponsoring any part of this work as per your preferences. We will be happy to place a plaque with the name of your choice as its sponsor.
We also look for sponsors to contribute towards sponsoring individual children in Snehalaya. As per “sponsor a child appeal”, just £20 or equivalent in any currency per month will pay for total maintenance of a disabled child there including home, food, clothes, education and health care with an opportunity to become independent or same can be done for £2000 once in life time. Please help us to provide a new life with happiness and dignity to these children in India.
Just £10 per month will provide the life with love and happiness
for such a child i.e. just £120 for whole year. Is it too much?
Less than cost of a daily tabloid news paper! Just think, it will provide
home and happiness to a disabled child on streets with an opportunity
to achieve a life as an independent person with self respect and esteem.
We desperately need funds and sponsors to carry on with these services
and expand upon this work as envisaged to help the poor, underprivileged,
the vulnerable and to establish the orphanage with centre for vocational
training and rehabilitation for disabled and destitute children on streets.
