Greetings to you all. Thankyou verymuch for your continuous support to the children home. We heard that New Projects going to spring up this year with generosity of our beloved Swedish folks.
This year the temperature was between
43- 47 degrees Celsius during the day and experiencing hot winds in the nighttime.
Fans are producing hot air and there is no moisture in the air. Children are being taken care and attending half day school which means from 7-30 am to 1 pm. Children are not allowed outside till 4 pm to avoid the heat from the sun. Boys stared sleeping out side the New varandah in their new dormitory.
The saddest issue is some of the fruit trees are dying because of the heavy heat and the soil is mixed with rocks where as unable to restore the water. We thought about putting a greedy shady net but because of the cost we with drew the proposal. Any how we are taking necessary care for the plants and trees. We never had this sort of experience in the past. It is all global warming and the sun heat is raising every year because of misusing the natural resources and pollution in the climate. The ground water level has gone down and facing severe power fluctuations since we have no separate power transformer. There is only one transformer which supplies power to the 300 families on the hill top, 50 families in the roadside and agricultural fields behind the school. We have woven a request to the government to provide us with a separate transformer and waiting for their answer.
The Volkswagen Germany with the help of Terre des homes their branch Organization in India has designed some wonderful programs for our Children. As a part of their program they have conducted Career guidance , Leadership development in the Physically Challanged Children, Gender justice, recognising the rights of the children classes were given to the Children. These workshops are very informative and useful to the children. They are not only useful for the children but also to the staff, myself, and other residents in the campus. Thanks to Volkswagen Germany and the Swedish Parents Organization for giving us such great opportunities to know and learn more.
Thanks for making a big difference in our lives.
Thankyou once again for extending your help and support to the Children Home.

Greetings to you all. Thank you very much for the support you have been giving us for the past many years. We Love you all for your unconditional Love ,Care and Support.
The winter season is gradually vanishing and summer is starting here. The temperature is increasing day by day and reaching to 35 degrees. We all started sleeping outside since the temperature in the rooms are high. Even the air from the fans is hot.
We planted some green leaves in the kitchen garden and the plantation done by our Swedish Parents in the month of January is now flowering to the tomatoes. Very soon we will get good tomatoes.
Children are enjoying the organic milk from our own buffaloes. We are really very fortunate to drink pure milk with out no preservators added and no Nanoparticles from the plastic packaging. The new buffalo shed added fantastic look to the ground which brings an organic look to the campus.
Children are getting prepared for their exams. They all expressed their gratitude for being given an opportunity to learn life skills at the School. Thank you very for the school bags and the food trolleys. The cooks and helpers are very thankful for the thouthfulness of our swedish Parents for giving these trolleys as a big gift to the childhood since they less the burden in serving the food.
Thank you once again for the wonderful care you are taking for us.
We Love you all.
Alice and Children.

Now the new dormitories are getting ready for the dedication program. Once the VW comes and dedicate the building we all can enter into the new buildings. Bathrooms work is going on and still needs to finish the flooring,painting part.
The building was designed as disabled friendly model. We hope everything will get ready for the January 2019 during our Swedish Parents visit and hope ws all celebrate the wonderful event.
Now the VW supported organization in I dial which is called as TDH Bangalore is going to run some training camps for the children in the Chikdhome on gender justice, leadership training, recognizing good touch and bad touch and also bringing the awareness on child rights and new policies on disabilities.
This sort of trading is really new for us and we feel that this is very essential for the children to get to know this information. They just started these classes this month and we are quite comfortable with the resource persons.
Sewing classes are interesting and rest of the regular subject classes are also very interesting because we have all subject teachers now teachers teaching in all subjects.
Thanks for supporting to the Maths, English, science, telugu, Hindi and Computer teachers.
The weather is cool during the night and very hot in the day. We still not feeling the winter has entered. No fire and cool winds. This year many mosquitoes because the crop is in the fields and fields are wet.
Thanking you on e again for you help and care.
We Love you all.

Greetings to you all. Thankyou verymuch for your love care and concern. We want to thank you all for the continuous support you have been extending to us over the past years.
This month we had heavy temperatures that we have never experienced in the past many years. In August we got satisfactory rains but in September we had a different temperature between 34-37 which is very unusual. Children are still sleeping outside just like summer.
We had a Hindu festival called “Vinayaka chaviti “ ( elephant headed God). People celebrate it in a big manner. I have already shared with you in my previous mails about theat of public trespassing in the Childhome compound for the branches leaves and flowers to worship him. This year we all including the school teachers ( they stayed overnight) got up early and guarded the school compound till the evening to avoid and controll public from tearing the branches and leaves. Some how we succeeded this year and hope fully we will able to built some protection wall in future.
This Month we changed the water filters by ourselves. Every month we change the water filters and a person comes from Narasaraopet to do this. But this time we did on our own and we feel quite confident about it.
Kitchen garden is giving its best result.
Hopefully we wanted to go for the second crop during the visit of our Swedish Parents in Jan 2019.
Once again thankyou verymuch for your unconditional love and care.
Anxiously waiting to see you in Jan 2019.

Greetings to you all. This month is a very stressful month for all of us. The academic year started, classes to the children started, admissions were closed in the school and the enrolment has to be submitted to the government. The teachers have more work than the children.
We had a good rain fall this month , but the same time we had severe heat also. This year the government has given water for the crops. So our school side canal is filled with water. We are happy for the water but much afraid of the mosquitoes. School staff is taking much care to protect us from the mosquitoes.
We are very happy that the new dormitories are erected and waiting for the roof work to be completed by the end of September 2018. Alice and team is taking much care to construct the waste water and toilet tank with leak proof.
We planted tomatoes and egg plants. Now they are getting ready. Greens we planted in raised beds. We are also raising some country chicken. We are gradually getting attracted to the Organic farming. The kitchen wasted is being used as compost. The more we learn we started loving the garden work.
As per as the academic education is concerned , children are learning and studying deligintly. There are slow learner’s also but we are spending more time for them to make them understand.
Some of the children are interested in learning sewing. We are teaching them the basics in sewing and some quick learneres are interested in stitching.
Thankyou verymuch for bringing all skills under one umbrella by providing with life skills. Thankyou verymuch for supporting us you are not only filling our tummies but providing us with best opportunities. We feel that it’s a privilege for all of us that we are in your HEARTS.
