Your Donations Save Children Like Shekar

This is seven year old Shekar who attends Deenabandhu Primary School. He is intelligence and articulate. Shekar has a sweet nature and has adjusted to the other children at the home. He  makes good eye to eye contact and feels confident in his interactions with others. He enjoys telling stories and is a fearless dancer!

Shekar comes from a poor broken family from a village called Koppaguddenahalli, in Vijayanagar,Kodagu district. His father Shankar deserted  the family.
Shankar was gas repairer and was able to earn Rs. 300/- to 400/- rupees per day. His first wife died of TB. Shekar's mother Tara is his second wife.  Shankar  used the money they both earned on drinking and never supported the family because of his terrible drinking habit. 
Helpless Tara, with the help of a friend, approached Shakthidhama (Mysore) for shelter.  She came to Deenabandhu to admit her children so they can receive care and an education.

With your support, YGB continues to fund 25 children for their education and living expenses in the loving home at Deenabandhu Children's Home Karnataka, India. This home houses about 100 boys and girls who have absolutely no other place to live. $500 a year can support these children fully. Join us to make a real difference in these children's lives and donate now!
