Sponsors are kept in touch with their children by an annual school report, a card at Christmas and our twice-yearly newsletters Sponsorship can also help to support the community in which the child lives or is educated.

 

Sponsorship makes a huge change in a poor child’s life. The cost of schooling in Tamil Nadu can be too much for many families, and in the aftermath of COVID-19 many children are finding it harder than ever to get back to school. Just £15 a month can help a poor family
to ensure their children finish their schooling or provide a safe refuge for a girl in need of full-time care.
 
The Kanji Project has been connecting our supporters with sponsored children for more that twenty five years, and over that time we have seen thousands of these children grow up into adults, earn a living and achieve great successes in their communities. 
 
Stories like those of Manoj showcase the power that sponsorship can have. Manoj was abandoned as a baby on a rubbish tip in 1995
 and given a home at our children’s home, Shanthi Lumin.  He still works closely with Maria today and was there to welcome TKP Trustees 
to Shanthi Lumin for the 25 year anniversary celebrations of the charity in 2019.

St Anthony’s School St Antony’s School educates around 1,500 students from poor, rural villages all around the Kanji area. By sponsoring a child, you can help to ensure that he or she can attend St Antony’s school and begin the climb out of poverty. Kanji Project supporters have been sponsoring students at St Antony’s since the charity began in 1993, and below are some of the stories that you can help make come true.

Shanthi Lumin Children’s Home Shanthi Lumin has residential space for as many as 60 girls who need support. Some of the girls at Shanthi Lumin are orphaned or are from abusive backgrounds, others have parents who have been forced to travel far away for work and need a temporary home where their children can continue to study, play, and go to school. You can sponsor a child at Shanthi Lumin from just £15 a month to make sure these children in need are kept safe, healthy, and happy in a secure environment overseen by Maria Rayappan, who first opened a home for destitute children in 1993, and has been the key point of contact for The Kanji Project in Shanthi Lumin ever since.

The Sunshine Day Centre The Sunshine Day Centre is run by the Rose Sisters and provides education for children with severe physical or mental disabilities.  Staffed by two trained teachers and ayhas, the day centre can support up to 16 children. There is little, if any, provision for the education of these children and without the day centre, they would remain in their huts with the minimum of supervision. Attendance at the day centre frees up the mothers to go out to work in the fields.
