On Baba’s Birthday we were able to open up 5 brand new HoPE
Centers and support 200 needy children.
The children that were helped were living in what some of the
volunteers are calling ‘the worst conditions they have ever seen.’
Considering how many impoverished areas these people have
witnessed over the years – that’s saying A LOT.
You see, Rameshwaram has a very unique set of circumstances.
Being an island it’s literally cutoff from the mainland, and the
usual support and opportunities simply aren’t available here.
It has led to a vicious cycle of suffering including:
- An uncivilized, volatile fisherman community…
- Rampant alcoholism…
- Virtually non-existent hygienic standards…
- A sub-standard education system with the average child
unable to read till 12 years of age…
But thanks to you it’s all started to change for the better!
The local teachers and parents were so thrilled to have Tripura’s
support in uplifting their community, and there have been some immediate
results reported so far.
Remember how I mentioned how poor the hygienic standards were?
We wanted to change that so we also handed out ‘HoPE Gift Packs’
that include essential items such as:
- Toothbrush & tooth paste
- Soap & hair oil
- Nail clippers & shoes
- Shirt & pants
Well, the teachers and parents shared how thrilled the children
were to receive everything they need for self-care.
In fact, they reported how the children immediately began brushing
their teeth and washing their hands – something they have resisted in the past!
Its results like this that have motivated us to aim to uplift the rest
of the island…
That’s why we’ve decided to continue the incredible momentum that
began with Baba’s Birthday Celebrations to fuel an exciting NEW initiative –
HoPE For Rameshwaram.
Our goal is to literally transform all of Rameshwaram, and
permanently free it from its current cycle of suffering.
We’d like to start by opening 5 more HoPE centers to help 200 more
I invite you to continue to partner with us to make this dream a
$10 will support one child and $300 an entire center [per month].
