BACKGROUND:

When nature destroys, it destroys ruthlessly and mercilessly. That is what the recent drought in Maharashtra saw, with an alarming number of farmer suicides. Young children who have been traumatized and orphaned by these suicides face an uncertain future. We at Suryoday Parivar support 31 such children who have been orphaned.

A REAL LIFE STORY:

Pallavi (8), Aditi (6), Soham (4) & Raunak (2) lost their parents who committed suicide.

Their story is a tale of how the drought in Maharashtra has had devastating consequences.

Their parents - a “farmer” couple identified as Ansuiya Kamble & Angad Kamble were reeling under acute financial hardship on account of the continuous drought in their region for the last 3 years. The mother Ansuiya Kamble first committed suicide after starving for many days & the death of his wife devastated the husband Angad who consumed poison 11 days after the death of Ansuiya, leaving behind 4 children. They were from the village of Tuljapur in Osmanabad district in Marathwada area.

Spiritual leader Bhaiyyuji Maharaj heard about this incident & sent representatives of the Trust to talk to the kin of these orphaned children for the latter’s adoption. Subsequent to permission from the family members of the deceased farmer and his wife, Bhaiyyuji Maharaj’s Trust – Suryoday Parivar, has adopted all the four children.

The 3 youngest children, Raunak, Soham and Aditi stay with their grand parents in Tuljapur and Suryoday takes care of their daily expenses. The older child Pallavi will go to the Bharatiya Sanskriti Prasharak Mandal School at Sangola located in district Solapur near Latur.  This is a school, which the trust owns &  has 150 children from class 1 to 10. Alongside the school is the orphanage where these 31 kids live now, called the Suryoday Balgrah (Anathalay) orphanage.


The trust now supports 31 such children who have been orphaned! We want to raise funds for their expenses, for the next 3 months.

ACTION PLAN: 

The plan is to take care of their complete requirements – not just from a hostel, food, clothing & education perspective – but also from the perspective of providing them with the emotional support required because of the loss of their parents The facilities provided in this orphanage & adjoining school include extra curricular activities like music, sports, malkhamb etc.

  

PEOPLE AT THE SCHOOL & ORPHANAGE:

We currently have 21 people (15 men and 6 women) working, looking after the children at the orphanage and the school. Our work has seen many children become socially comfortable and they look forward to attending school.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST:

The cost of supporting each child is just 25,000 INR per annum.

Break up of INR 25000  annual costs are outlined below:

1. Food/grocery – INR 18000

2. Mattress, Bed Sheet, Pillow & Blanket – INR 2000

3. Clothes – INR 1700

4. Health and hygiene - INR 1700

5. Books, Copies & School bag - INR 1600

This works out to INR 2085/child/ month & a monthly cost of INR 67500 for 31 children.

OUR GOAL IS TO RAISE INR 2L INR TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR NEEDS FOR 3 MONTHS AT LEAST  IF WE ARE ABLE TO RAISE MORE THAN THAT WE CAN FUND THEIR NEEDS FOR A LONGER TIME.

Please contribute so that these children can live a normal life.

Your funding will have tax benefits too.
