“It’s more blessed to give than to receive” is the experience of the good willed people in the sponsorship programme. We see satisfying sponsors continuing their support in spite of hard times in economy in many nations around the world…. because they witness lives being transformed and many of their sponsored children achieving self – reliance and are moving toward a brighter future.
Regular updates of the children and the happening at the Home are the key to the success of the programme.
When sponsors express their desire to support a child, a welcome pack with a brief history of the organization, background information about the child (what we call a case history), a recent full size photograph and a hand written letter or a coloring page is sent to them. The regular updates of the children are sent to the sponsor with the quarterly newsletter. In addition to this, an e-mail contact list of the sponsors is being made to make the correspondence quick and cost effective. During special occasions and festive times, sponsors who have email Ids are sent video clipping of the children singing or reciting a rhyme which makes them very happy.
Besides children, in recent times we have increasing number of destitute women (House Mothers) and grandparents taking refuge at the Home, for whom we did not get any support so far. From 2012 onwards, we have been encouraging our sponsoring bodies to consider the support of this elderly community. Our sponsors have always been very supportive to the programme.
Many sponsors visit the orphanage and witness how their love, support and participation in the programme build and transform lives.
