A Year Gone by... '09

As we are about to step into new year, we would like to thank you for your support and look forward to working more closely with you in the days ahead.

What started off as a small Endeavor to help the children by providing them with basic English and computer knowledge, has now grown into a network of volunteers who help about 600 children across 7 schools in and around Hyderabad. Our greatest strength lies in the fact that we’ve registered a tremendous growth in the number of man-hours we spend with every child. The number of volunteers associated with us has increased to 100. The response of the schools has been very encouraging.Our intention aimed to allay the fears of englis language. We have setup and updated our syllabus based on our experience over the past years.
The past year…
SAHAYA is a youth volunteer network, which began with the lucid aim of making a difference in the society. This crusade against the unjust plight of underprivileged tots was fueled with the zeal to make it a reality. To many, this was a wake-up call; the concept begot a whole new genre of people working selflessly for one aim. The response we got after our first Anniversary Celebrations ever session on March 18, 2009 was both overwhelming and humbling at the same time. More than 100 ppl joined as volunteers, dedicated to the motto of “bridging inequality through education”. From then, SAHAYA was on a continual hike in the success-graph;

The events of the past year, right from the first session of SAHAYA, has played a very important role in bringing to the forefront our vision and ideology.

Apart from all this, our accomplishment lies in the fact that we are now proud teachers to some very smart minds. It especially makes us swell with pride to say that we have covered over 7 Schools spent meaningfully in imparting quality education to the children! With figures looking very bright and the growth moving upwards steadily, SAHAYA dreams of soaring to greater heights in the near future.

We do not believe this to be a charity; we feel this is our duty, our obligation.

Wishing you a very happy, healthy & successful 2010

Warm New Year Wishes
