Grateful ! More help needed to support 23 kids at Miracle Orphanage

Miracle Manna Children's Home is a loving home to 23 children - orphaned by their natural parents at different ages- and embraced by the large arms and hearts of Shivaji and Prema. The couple began their unplanned journey desiring to welcome one child into their family through adoption. But the need for home for children orphaned by poor parents, some neglected and oppressed, grew systematically over the last 6 years to the strength of today, thanks to the couple's quiet resolve not to say no to a child in distress.

Despite their own economic background being modest. Shivaji had to leave his job as a driver, and Prema as a BPO staffer, to raise children and do all the physical work required to run the home, committed to providing the kids with good education and loving care. They go down to the bare minimum quite often and live with faith and dignity thanks to providential help of benefactors, like the Principal of a city english medium convent school charging a discounted fee of just Rs.5000 per child per year, to a land lord who has given a reasonably roomy home for a rent of Rs.8000/- pm., and other families helping them monetarily and in kind.

Funds required immediately is Rs.1,20,000/- to meet pending Home rent for 5 months, unpaid school fees for a few students , unpaid college fees for the oldest child of the Home, Marina, who is in 1st year BBA, and for food rations for the coming month. This would give immediate relief for the Couple to keep the Orphanage going.

Dear Supporters

Out of Rs.482900/- of Sri Aurobindo yearly fees, we have so far paid only Rs.1 lakh in April 2019. We will have to pay a minimum amount of Rs.1 lakh now in Sept month, and clear the balance in two later installments when our funds situation is more comfortable.

After utilising fully the neighbourhood Citizen Support Group contribution commitments for the financial year 2019-20, we have a Rs.7 lakh deficit which we will have to crowd source from warm hearted supporters like yourself. Your support is a major enabler for the Home's running and kids' education.

The current withdrawal will be used for paying 2nd instalment of school fees as per above.

Warm regards
Venkatesh

Fervour and spirit at Miracle children's home Independence day celebration : 15th August 2019

Every year, Miracle children's home celebrates Independence day with flag hoisting by a chief guest for children to imbibe patriotic values and selflessness. This year, with children having greater exposure to the idea of Independence day, thanks to exposure at their new school, the fervour and spirit in children were markedly higher ! This augurs well for their overall development as responsible citizens..

Our request for funds to meet the deficit in Education spends for the Academic year 2019-20 of Rs.4.31 lakhs is very much alive, and the need is immediate. Seek your continued support to fund the Education expense gap at the earliest, in order for us to give a decent education to these orphaned kids .

1. Sri Aurobindo school
- Fees, Uniforms, books for 17 Kids from Class 1 to 9 standards is ₹ 4,82,900/-

3. Sindhi PU College

4. Tuition/special classes for 4 students full year ₹ /- 50000

Dear Supporters, 

  • Successful completion of 1st year in new school: April 2019
    • Initiative: Change to decent schools to break the cycle of decent school + affordability Vs poorly run school which are lower cost
    • Aurbindo Public school (CBSE), Sahakarnagar: 16 kids: 1-8 grades
    • George English school (State), Kempapura: 3 kids: 9-10 grades
    • Outcome: All kids promoted to the next class; kids have improved in skills even as it is work-in-progress, school has the belief and kids are liking it.Mediated home study is a key enabler (see table).
  • Low cost field trips for real world learning:
      A first time to the planetarium, kids spent an hour and a half on the hands-on, interactive science exhibits in the science park  in the complex. Thereafter, kids watched in the special auditorium, a film on space voyage with Kannada audio. Hopefully, this visit will ignite            the hidden interest in science.
  • The next big step in life - Year 2019-20
      *  Marina is looking for work, having given final semester exam to complete BBA. She is eager to fashion her life with the independence that working can give her. Deepa has started 1st year PU college in Arts which includes Psychology. Her first brush with the subject has fired a dream to become a Psychologist ! Janu starts school, going to UKG. She likes her school because she writes and draws!
    • After their first fortnight at school here is a sample of responses on aim in their new class said with a shy smile:
    • “ I want to do very well in English, top the class” ………  
    • “ I want to do well in science. And play in school Kho Kho team“
    •  I want to improve my handwriting and English, do well in studies”
    • Attached picture of kids in their new academic year.
  • Immediate Need: Education expense deficit: Rs.4,31,000/-.
