Looking back at 2011

Looking back at 2011, where did we spend the most funds? Where did we spend our time?
It should not be a surprise that we spent more than 50% of the funds in supporting professional course students which are expensive and are still out of reach for many of the rural students.

Rural students still struggle to pay their tuition fees, irrespective of the education stream. There are families who cannot support their wards finish arts and science courses or vocational courses. Almost 3/4th of the funds were spent in paying tuition fees for such students.

We are ringing in the new year with a great news - A girl from Chatrapathi village has got a job offer after finishing her course in textile technology with Helping Minds support. Now she will be able to support herself and her poor family and things look brighter for her. Helping Minds wishes this student a great and fulfilled year.

With your support, we hope to bring joy and cheer to more and more such families in 2012. We hope to continue to get support from our patrons and well-wishers so that we can bring in hope for more deserving students.

We wish students, their families, our patrons and supporters a great and fulfilled new year!
