I have another project letter to share with you today. This letter is from the project where my Sandesh attends, IN-866.
Join me in learning more about what life is like for the children at this project.
Greetings to you!
My name is Anand. I am the project director of Astha Child Development Center, where Sandesh attends. I express our gratitude and would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your valuable sponsorship and also for your prayers and support in changing the life of the child.
Our project starts with prayer and with meditation on the Word of God. We conduct some indoor sports activities; children would be mentored by the Child Development Facilitator. We close the session with prayer with the children and the children would leave to school.
Some of the activities in our project are: we conducted health checkups, camp at our project, parents meeting, spiritual retreat for parents and children, distributed spiritual booklets to parents, and storybooks to children. Holiday gifts, special children gifts, and family gifts have been distributed as well.
This project made a great impact in the community. School drop was high but after the intervention of this project, children attendance rates has increased. Now the parents know the value of education and so the parents are taking interest in sending their children to school. Parents send their children to the project and are seeking prayer support from us. We could also see change in parents' life as many parents are addicted to alcohol and other social evil practices, these parents were counseled and many gave up alcoholism and lead a happy life. Some parents began to attend church regularly and they have asked questions as a result of interest and have been asking us how to grow spiritually. Children started praying and reciting verses.
Your letters are so special for children, which give them the feeling of self worth. The child knows that someone from far loves them so deeply and as a result to show their love towards you, they pray for you and your family. We hope that your regular letters would create strong bonds for the development of the children.
We ask that you pray for our community and uphold our project in your prayers as we try to spread the truth about God by showing love to the children in our center. Pray for the project and for the project staff. Pray that the social evil should be eradicated from the community. Pray for the parents who gave up alcoholism, for them to be strong in their decision.
Once again, I would like to thank you for all the support in the form of sponsorship and prayers, which are really helpful to this child. We assure you of our prayers for you and your family. May God bless you and lead you in all that you do.
Thanks & Regards,
