Help build an orphanage in India - CHILD Children Home

Thursday, 07 February 2013 03:42

Dear friends and good hearted people! I am turning to you with an appeal to help with the construction of an orphanage in Chennai, India, where I have volunteered as an English teacher.

 

CHILD – Children Home is a registered trust – an NGO which is involved in providing for the needs of the orphans and abandoned children of HIV positive parents since 2005.

Currently they are living in a small rented house where the rooms are classrooms and offices by day and bedrooms by night. At the moment there are 15 boys in the orphanage so it is really crowded. Because of this and with a wish to help even more children they are building a new building. They have a lot of recurring costs for food, clothing, school expenses, so they need financial support for this project.

 

 

DSC07317I have spent around seven weeks in the organisation as a volunteer, teaching English. I have experienced first hand that they are treating the kids as their own with a lot of love and support. They give great meaning to education and mutual support, so the children have really good marks and are keen on helping each other. The most fascinating thing is that even though they do not have a lot of material goods they are deeply grateful for what they have and they face the daily challenges with a smile on their faces.

 

Please take a moment and look at some of the photos I have taken when I was there. There you can also find their appeal for help, plan of the building and specific costs regarding the construction: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/vmvjsd7yv3pqnty/eqbFLCo85x

 

Please also take a look at their webpage: http://www.childin.org/ and their Fcebook account: https://www.facebook.com/child.home.3

 

For the whole building they need approximately 5.000.000 Indian rupees, which is about 72.000 EUR. You can help with sponsoring a part of the house which has 3204 sq. feet. You can donate for one sq. feet which is about 1.500 Indian rupees, which is approximately 22 EUR. You can also donate for a couple of sq. feet or you can even sponsor a whole room. In any case they will also be happy for donations for recurring monthly costs: food, clothing, tuition... I know that the economy is not in a good state but it is very important that we do not forget about the people in need around us and we help them the best way we can. In Europe 22 EUR can be spent relatively quickly that is why I believe that that anyone is capable of a small donation for a good cause.

 

Funds can be transferred directly to their account:

IBAN: 19891450000069

Name: CHILD Children Home

Purpose: CHILD – Children Home – Donation for the new building

 

If you wish to donate a small amount or you want to avoid paying high transaction fees you can also transfer funds to my account with purpose: »CHILD – Children Home – Name and Surname«. Raised funds will be transferred to them for the first time as a Christmas present on 24.12.2012. Later on the funds will be transferred to them every couple of months or when a sum of funds will accumulate.

ALL the raised funds go directly to the orphanage (I pay the transaction costs for donations from my account). I have spent really nice seven weeks in the organization so I know that they are really taking good care of the children and that the funds will be purposely spent.

Pomoč pri gradnji sirotišnice: CHILD home for children

Thursday, 07 February 2013 01:49

Prijatelji, znanci, sorodniki, dobri ljudje! Na vas se obračam s prošnjo za pomoč pri izgradnji sirotišnice v Chennai-u v Indiji, kjer sem jaz pomagal kot prostovoljec – učitelj angleščine.

 

CHILD – Children Home je nevladna organizacija - sirotišnica, ki otrokom, katerim starši umirajo ali so umrli zaradi virusa HIV, nudijo dom, življenjske potrebščine in oporo. Otroci so zdravi in jim organizacija omogoča dostojno življenje, plačuje šolo in šolske potrebščine ter jih z veliko ljubezni vzgajajoDSC07349 kot brate.

 

Trenutno živijo v najeti hiši, ki je zelo majhna in so prostori  ponoči spalnice, podnevi pa učilnice, pisarne, skladišča... Trenutno je v domu 15 dečkov in so v zelo veliki prostorski stiski. Z namenom, da lahko otrokom omogočijo kakovostno življenje, so se odločili, da zgradijo novo, večjo sirotišnico, ki bo lahko nudila zatočišče še več otrokom. Se pa dnevno spopadajo z veliko stroški za hrano in oblačila ter za učne pripomočke.  Zato  potrebujejo  pri tej investiciji finančno pomoč. 

 

DSC07317Sam sem pri njih v sirotišnici preživel okoli sedem tednov kot prostovoljec in jih učil angleščino. Glede na mojo izkušnjo vem, da z njimi ravnajo kot s svojimi lastnimi otroki in so deležni veliko ljubezni. Velik poudarek dajejo tudi na medsebojno pomoč in izobrazbo, zato imajo zelo dobre ocene in se med seboj spodbujajo. Najbolj fascinantna stvar pa je, da čeprav nimajo veliko materialnih dobrin, so globoko hvaležni za tisto kar imajo in se z nasmehom spopadajo s težavami.

 

 

Prosim, vzemite si nekaj trenutkov in si oglejte nekaj slik, ki sem jih posnel, ko sem bil pri njih. Tu je tudi njihova prošnja za pomoč, načrt hiše in stroškov ter slike njene gradnje: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/vmvjsd7yv3pqnty/eqbFLCo85x

 

Pregledate si lahko tudi njihovo spletno stran: http://www.childin.org/ in facebook račun: https://www.facebook.com/child.home.3

 

Za celotno hišo potrebujejo približno 5.000.000 indijskih rupij, kar znese okoli 72.000 EUR. Pomagate lahko tako, da sponzorirate del hiše, ki je velika 3204 sq. feet, in sicer stane 1 sq. feet = 1.500 Indijskih rupij, kar je približno 22 €. Lahko sponzorirate več sq. feet ali pa tudi sponzorirate posamezno sobo v celoti. Vsekakor bodo pa tudi veseli prispevkov za tekoče stroške (hrana, oblačila, šolske potrebščine...). Zavedam se, da je gospodarstvo v slabem stanju, vendar je pomembno, da ne pozabimo na soljudi in jim pomagamo po svojih močeh. V Sloveniji se 22 € hitro zapravi, zato mislim, da je vsak zmožen majhnega prispevka za dober namen.

 

Denar lahko prispevate tako, da ga nakažete direktno na njihov račun:

IBAN: 19891450000069

Ime in priimek: CHILD Children Home

Naslov prejemnika (ulica in hišna številka): No 1 Chellappa Street Annai Nagar Korattur

Namen: CHILD – Children Home – Donation for the new building

 

V kolikor želite prispevati kakšen manjši znesek oz. se izogniti stroškom transakcije, lahko denar nakažete na moj račun s pripisom: »CHILD – Children Home – Ime in Priimek«. Denar jim bom prvič nakazal kot božično darilo 24.12.2012, kasneje pa vsake par mesecev, oz. ko se bo nabralo nekaj denarja. Podatki za nakazilo: Matevž Gantar, Rakovnik 131, 1215 Medvode; SI56 0202 1348 0664 104 odprt pri NLB, Swift: LJBASI2X

 

Ves zbran denar gre direktno sirotišnici (bančne transakcije za nakazila iz mojega računa plačam jaz). Pri ustanoviteljih sirotišnice sem preživel kar nekaj zelo lepih tednov in sem prepričan, da bo denar namensko porabljen. Za vsa vprašanja in dodatne informacije sem na voljo preko emaila: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. in telefonske številke: 031 471 545.  Spremljate nas lahko tudi na

 

Facebok računu: https://www.facebook.com/PomocPriGradnjiSirotisniceVIndiji Prosim vas tudi, da mi, v kolikor ste donirali sredstva, pošljete email z zadevo: »CHILD – Children Home – Ime in Priimek« ter navedite tudi znesek, da vidim, kako daleč seže zbiralna akcija in vas lahko obveščam o zbranih sredstvih ter se vam tudi zahvalim.

 

Prošnjo posredujte naprej, prosim, da se lahko vključi in pomaga čim več ljudi.

 

Iskrena hvala za vso pomoč že vnaprej. Skupaj lahko spremenimo svet na bolje - vsaj za te otroke.

 

S prijaznimi pozdravi,

 

Matevž Gantar & CHILD Family
