Make a wish (July 2013 to Present)

'Birthday' - For the world it might be just one other day but for every kid it is the most awaited day of the year; the day they feel they are very special to their family and friends. But if we think over, is it the same for children on the streets or in orphanages? Surely, there are many out there who don't even know their birthdays.

TrueIndia stepped forward to celebrate birthdays of those children who can't afford to wish. TrueIndia started off 'Make a wish' in July 2013 with a plan of celebrating birthdays of the children at Divya Disha homes at the end of every month with a nice cake, few gifts and lots of love. Divya Disha is voluntary organization that had been working towards child protection since 1987. Activities are conducted at Divya Disha during the visits of TrueIndia volunteers every month to encourage and develop the creativity, motor and interpersonal skills among the kids. 'Make a wish'- our effort to light up little faces- later also served as a platform for unveiling talents of the children in Divya Disha homes.

Acknowledging TrueIndia’s work DivyaDisha representative Dr. Ch. Ramesh babu says- "This generous gesture and support from you has become a source of joy and happiness for the children of both homes as they cherish their birthday and your association with gratitude."

Center for Social Services

Center of Social Services is located at Mamtha Nagar Colony, Nagole, in Hyderabad. It was founded by Mrs. Vijaya lakshmi in the year 2004. It started as an orphanage with 5 girls and now is a Charity home for more than 50+ girls offering shelter and education. Economic independence, education and empowerment of women are CSS’s major goals. To achieve these goals, CSS is running four major programmes –

  • Residential programme for orphan and single parent girls

  • CSS-NAM Girls School (Free English Medium School for economically and socially deprived girls)

  • Swayam Sakthi for women in socially and economically challenged situations

  • Community based programme for elderly women

CSS child Sponsorship Program (July 2010- Present)

Since our inception, TrueIndia has been a great supporter of the work done by CSS. TrueIndia supports orphans/semi orphans and economically backward children by channelizing funds for annual academic sponsorships. Since 2010, TrueIndia has financially supported upto 20 students every year for the education and well being of children in need. So far, we have sponsored kids from Kindergarten to 5th grade and are motivated to see them complete their higher education. All the kids are enrolled in CSS+NAM free school. The cost of sponsorship for each kid is approximately $160. It is the consolidated cost of all the individual expenses for note books, stationery, tuition fee, uniform, shoes and socks and snacks. TrueIndia believes in continous sponsorship and works with the aim of maintaining the same sponsor for an individual kid. As a result, we have mostly the same sponsors who have been assisting us each and every year.

TI Volunteers visit CSS regularly to observe the well being of the children and their education. TI Volunteers update the sponsors with information with quarterly reports about the individual kid’s educational progress.

Natural Calamity Funding- Floods (October 2009)

In October 2009, the state of Andhra Pradesh faced worst ever floods in the near history of 100 years. Hundreds of villages have completely drowned in the floods. With the help of our sponsors, associate charity organizations at the local, regional, and global levels, we targeted to serve Sherpally village, Mahboobnagar district, which was completely submerged for a few days under Krishna floods.

The Sherpally Village - Most of the villagers are landless labourers who were without livelihood for the previous ten days. They were spending their time completely on repairing their houses, removing slush and trying to salvage whatever remained after the flood waters receded. On the night of the flood, most of the villagers fled the village, they did not have time to lock their houses or pick up even an extra pair of clothing. Our team delivered rice, vegetables, grocery, ladles, biscuit packets, and notebooks at their village.

TrueIndia is glad that our collaborative efforts with Sphoorti and other associate organizations (Manavatha, HARD & VASSORD), had immediate and longer-term impact on thousands of lives.
