“Thanks to you, our supporters, the Trust has had another successful year when over £10,000 was raised. This is such a wonderful achievement and has meant we have been able to commit funds to complete the equipping of the original 30 Anganawadis that we pledged to support.
We have also increased our guaranteed sum for fees for students wishing to go on to higher education. The number of students seeking this assistance is rising all the time and in an attempt to give more young people the chance of a higher education we have raised our annual grant towards fees by 40%. In return students now completing their course are pledging sums towards fees to help the future generations.
The past year has also seen the request for more short-term vocational courses for young women. We spoke last year of the success of the tailoring course, now taking place six times per year. We are now also to part-fund the setting up of embroidery courses and beautician courses based at the College.
May I thank you all again for your on-going support of the Trust. We know we make a real difference to the lives of children, young people and their families and we will continue to ensure that 100% of any donation will reach those for whom it was intended.”
