Requesting Donations For Survival Of A Children's Home

Greetings from T. Selvaraj, Managing Trustee of Synthika Trust.
Synthika Trust is a charitable trust in Lalgudi, Trichy that gives special education
and rehabilitation service for all types of differently abled
(visually impaired, hearing impaired, mentally retarded, orthopedic handicapped) children since 2006.
Our home which houses about 30 children, is currently running with the help of donations from local
people and well wishers. But, we are in a CRISIS situation to SAVE OUR HOME from CLOSING DOWN
as we are not able to meet the infrastructural requirements set by the Government of Tamil Nadu.
We are looking for timely help in the form of donations from well wishers.
Kindly continue to read below for more information.

As per government rules, each child should have 40 sq.ft of living space which amounts to about
1200 sq.ft. But, at present we only have about 600 sq.ft which is half the required size.
Government officials from the District Child Protection Department had instructed us to expand our home according to the
regulations around June 2016 and had given us about 6 months time to do so. We immediately
initiated construction of an additional floor in the same building to meet the above requirements.
Due to lack of funds, we are still unable to complete the construction work
which brings us frequent warnings from the authorities.
We have now been issued a final warning to finish the work within TWO MONTHS,
else suffer the dire consequence of closing down Synthika Trust.
We have somehow managed to resume work again with the help of donations from
a few well wishers, but still suffer a deficit of about INR 1,25,000/- to complete the work.

The following are some close estimates for the amount required for all pending works:

Pending Work                                                Amount (INR)
Sand                                                                          20000
Grill Work-Window & Door                                    25000
Tiles                                                                           15000
Plumbing & Electrical work                                    15000
Chips                                                                            5000
Mason Labour                                                          40000
White wash                                                                 5000
Total                                                                         125000

We have been very fortunate to have had frequent interactions with students from NIT Trichy for almost
6 years now. Various clubs from NIT Trichy like the Festember Social Responsibility and Aarushi
have visited our home on many occasions and have spent quality time with our children along with providing
some monetary help for our home. This brings us to NIT Trichy which has always been special for our home
children in our need of the hour. Whatever little yet timely help that you could extend can together
create a huge and ever lasting impact in our children's lives.


Thanking You,
Yours sincerely,

Managing Trustee

Dear Supporters,

We are very very happy to announce that we have managed to receive the required amount of money to complete construction of our home (Synthika Trust). Me and the children in my home would like to thank all the donors from the bottom of our hearts and we would remain every grateful to you for this very very kind gesture. We feel very overwhelmed with the support we received for the campaign.

Right now, we have started the construction work and it is going on in full swing. We have also notified the government authorities about the campaign and we have asked them for time to complete construction now that we have the required funds to complete the work. Please find attached some images of the ongoing construction work below.

We will provide more updates about our construction work and hopefully we can move our kids to the place as soon as possible. We would like to thank everyone once again and God Bless!!!

Dear Supporters,

Thank you so much for the tremendous support you have provided. We have received an overwhelming response for our campaign and we would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for the love and affection.

We have right now received about INR 108,334 with which we are planning to start work immediately. Today, we are planning to buy sand and settle the money for windows & doors and mason labour. We will provide the bill details of all our expenses with respect to the construction of our home very soon. We are just short of INR 25,000 rupees now and once we have erased this deficit, we will be able to pay for all the expenses and finish construction as soon as possible.

All the children in Synthika Trust and I will be forever grateful for this noble act of yours and we would like to know that there are many more struggling NGOs like ours who are finding it very difficult to even meet out basic requirements for food, education and shelter. We would like to put out a humble request to all of you to do your minimum possible to reach out to the other needy people as well. There is so much that one can do to save them from their situation. We would once again like to thank you for all the help. God Bless!!!

With Thanks and Regards,
(Managing Trustee)
Synthika Trust.
