Dear Swedish Parents,

Greetings to you all. I am very happy to inform you all that the childrenhome has been reopened from September 1st 2021. The government has given permission to start the schools again and now accorded permission to start the children home. Now we have 65 children in our home.
We have taken all precautions including sanitising the children home, pest control, mosquito repellent spraying etc.
This year we have had a major problem with  mosquito bites since all the agricultural fields are springing up with activities. There is a big treat of Dengue fever also. Many children suffered with viral fevers and we have put them to good medical care.
Now for us it has been a big challenge to bring the children back into normal life. I personally found that disciplinary norms should be maintained back by the staff interns of education, food etc since they have spend 2 years back at their homes doing nothing. More over these
Children need special care and attention.So we are giving health and hygiene classes, moral instruction classes, giving more time for games and extra cuticular activities since they have to spend more time on education to complete the academic syllabus by Feb 2022.
The former students of RGMHS are going to celebrate an Old studentAlumni on the October 9th 2021 with a gathering of 300 students. We actually planned it in the month of January 2022 during Sam visit. But since we are unable to know the travel ban we felt that we will start with in this year and will conclude in January 2022 commomarating the 40 year’s celebrations.
We wanted to express our gratitude to the Swedish parents association also for continuing their support with us for the past 1 years which is called a Deccinial celebrations.
Thanks for all the support you have extended for us for all these past years and years yet to come.
Thanking you,
With Love,
Alice and children.

Letter to the Swedish parents

Dear Swedish Parents,

Greetings to you all. We all are safe and healthy during this second wave of Pandamic and we do hope all of you are safe and sound.
Thankyou very much for your Love and support. We owe a great debt of gratitude for all the help and support you have given us during these two years of Pandamic. We do not really know your situation in Sweden ,you may have job problems, health problems and financial constraints. But apart from all your hardships you have extended you Love and Support to us to bring smile in our faces.
No words are enough to say Thanks to you all.
We are happy that no child was affected with COViD 19. No reports and cases were recorded. Only two of our staff members were effected with COViD and one went up to death bed, fortunately he recovered after a long hospitalisation.
Only students of 25 children stayed in the Childrenhome and they had a good time here.
We thank God none of them were affected with COViD. All the measures for sanitation has been taken and even the children got used to the hygiene system.
We are happy that the government declared promotion to the next class level without exams only by bases on their quarterly test results. We have been waiting for the government’s decision for the past three months and they have finally declared that these children can join in the Gurjit classes.
16 of our high school children are being promoted for the college level. We have no new admissions for 2020. But this year we had new admissions. We are waiting for the government to accord permission to start this academic year. We hope that by the first week of August we will start the school.
Teachers are attending every alternative day.
For these past two months children had more classes on English and Maths because these are the tough and important subjects to join in the college level. More grammar classes in English were taught to them.
Hindi teacher was moved to another town since her husband got transferred to another town . So she attended only up to 15th of April. No Hindi classes till May. No we have got new teacher since the schools yet to start she will come from August.
Some children learned sewing also. We grew our own vegetables but in the month of May because of the heavy heat the greens were gone and only few veggies are left. We have again ploughed the ground and going to plant more veggies again.
Buffaloes are fine and two of them became old and had a problem with uterus prolapse. We would like to get new ones soon. It’s good the share that they survived in the heavy summer.
We celebrated the important days like international day of disabilities, earth day and day day no to child labor day etc.
Made some seed balls and throw it on the hill Hope at least some plants will grow on the hill in the future.
We have got nicely fixed wash basins in the dining area with the help of Volkswagen now. Thanks to the VWEF.
Thanks for the Swedish Parents Association for extending your Love and Care.

Thanking you,
Alice and Children

Dear Swedish Parents

Greetings to you all. The school has started  from January 2021. All the children are studying diligently to cover the syllabus by the end of May 2021 since they all lost their academic year due to COViD 19 in 2020.
They have regular classes every day. It has become a challenge to bring all children back into normal life since most were addicted to Televisions during the lockdown. Now we are taking all necessary measures to keep them hygienic and healthy.
Most of the children doesn’t have the online facility during the lockdown. So, completion of the syllabus was hindered . Now it has become a burden to both children and staff to complete the academic syllabus with in a short period which is by the end of My to appear for the annual exams in June 2021.
So far no COViD cases in the school and happy to see all the children in a good health condition.
Very recently we made a survey on the tribal community children and identified 240 children from the age groups  3-18 With in the 7 kilometers radius of our school. Our future plan is to give inclusive education to both normal and Differently Abled children under the poverty line. We find the Tribal community is most needy children next to the differently Abled . We would like to mix them both together to give good standard of education.
We are happy to inform you about our future plans and hope that this will materialise soon. We are sure with our your support we cannot do nothing but together we can build bright future for many deserving children.
At present there is a rapid growth in COViD cases in our state. Many state’s declared lockdown. So far Andhrapradesh Government has not taken any deciSoon. All the central government schools declared that no exams for the 10th grade. Only promotion is allowed just the same as in 2020.
Our government is not in a position to face another lockdown. All the prices for food items went high and medical expenses has become outrageous.
Thankyou once again for supporting us With out fail during the Pandamic .will send you more updates soon. Thanks for Sam and Swedish Parents Association for being a pillar of Hope and Strength to us.

Thanking you,
Alice and children
