Sponsor A Child - Ramalingapuram, Year 2011 - 12

Ramalingapuram, Nellore District, AP
 
Located at Zilla Parishad High School, Ramalingapuram village, Nellore District, Andhra Pradesh, India, this project serves the children in around the villages of Pedaputhedu, Ramalingapuram, Padisonpet and Yalamanchipadu under Sponsor-A-Child program. Out of 10 children initially sponsored in this project, one of them (Dasu Vaddi) is orphan and remaining all children are semi-orphan. All of these children are at the brink of discontinuing their studies due to their deprived condition before Bighelp sponsor their education. The full details of each sponsoring child are provided below. Additional children will be sponsored in this project as we continue to find the eligible children.

This is our first project in the district of Nellore and is the 23rd active project for Bighelp in the state of Andhra Pradesh under Sponsor-A-Child program. This project helps the orphans and underprivileged children to continue their studies with the support of their sponsoring donors. In addition to getting financial assistance to pay the school fees, buy books, cloths, shoes, educational material and private tuition, in this program children are benefited from more individual attention by our project directors and project committee (group of Bighelp volunteers) that has been established in this village. These students will continue to get the sponsorship from Bighelp until they complete their 12th grade as long as they continue to perform well and meet the eligibility criteria. .

There are many children in and around the village of Ramalingapuram who have no option but abandon their schooling and go to work to support their family. The situation is even worse if the child does not have parents and earn their bread themselves. For all children sponsored under this project, it was almost everyday struggle for their existence and continuing their education was distant dream. Bighelp was able to form a project committee with the support of school headmaster, teachers, and villagers to help these underprivileged children and hope to give them a gift of bright future with the help of the sponsoring donors.

Each of these children has a dream to have a better life and be the better citizen through education. Srikumar wants to become an engineer, Srihari wants to become a Software Engineer and Dasu wants to become a doctor. Every child has a goal, but does not have any support to reach their goals. Bighelp is committed to provide all the necessary support and hopes to bring their dreams come true with the help of their sponsors.

Project Geographic Information
Ramalingapuram is a village in Dagadarthi Mandal of Nellore District, Andhra Pradesh, India. It is around 23 Kilometers away from Nellore. Nellore is a town about 475 KMS away from Hyderabad and is connected by Road and Rail. The population of the village is about 1200 families and they are all dependent on cultivation labor and coolies. Being a coastal city it will experience with cyclones very often. Due to the climatic conditions so many days the poor people will have to starve without any work. Under these circumstances to give education for their children is an additional burden to them. When the villagers are struggling for their kiths education Bighelp came as a light in dark in their life. Bighelp project will continue in this village as long as our local project committee (group of volunteers) in this village continues to work hard and improve the educational opportunities for the needy children.
