Bhatu Paul Is Receiving An Education

23 May 2011 No Comment

Bhatu Paul, one of the children featured in our recently completed India Tuition Project can now go to school thanks to your donations! He was recently placed in a special program in Kolkata that admits children who have had no other previous formal education. He is currently learning the fundamentals of reading, writing, math, and other important subjects. Vickie Wiedenmann of Children International wrote to Aura’s House to let us know the great news.

Bhatu Paul, one of Kolkata's newest students

Vickie writes:

“Greetings, everyone! I’m happy to send several photos of our new student, Bhatu Paul, which were just forwarded to us by our staff in India.

I think from the smile on his face that we can all agree that he’s a very happy boy and is delighted to be attending school! Thanks so much for giving him this wonderful opportunity.

In addition to the photos, below is a letter that was written by one of our social workers who works with Bhatu. Tapashi’s letter details the benefits and support he received thanks to your efforts and kindness.

Children International is grateful and proud of our partnership with Aura’s House!”


In additon, this update would not be complete without also thanking the generous and wonderful, Christina Sidoti, a partner here at Aura’s House. She recently made a generous $88 donation that will fund Bhatu for an additional year and keep him in school and with that beautiful smile on his face. Thank you Christina and thanks to our many wonderful donors, volunteers, interns, and supporters who helped fund the India Tuition Project.
