Dear ODAM supporters!
If you have not heard already, ODAM Barathi Girls Hostel is in urgent need of your help. Recent security threats at the Narikudi hostel have forced ODAM to relocate the 30 girls to their Thiruchuli office. These girls are currently living in the NGO office which is not set up to accommodate this type of situation. Fortunately, the girls' studies have not been interrupted and they have enrolled in local secondary schools in Thiruchuli. ODAM needs your help, however, to help renovate the office to better serve the girls in their current situation. ODAM also wants to purchase land and build a new hostel that will provide the safety and security necessary for the 30 girls, and the future 20 expected to enroll this fall. This new hostel will also double as a community space for rural development projects, self help groups, agricultural projects and more.
Former volunteers are rallying to raise £5,000 to purchase the land and support the girls for the next few months in their temporary situation. Once the land is purchased, construction plans can begin and we can seek grant funding!
Please help us raise the funds to ensure India's rural girls receive the education they deserve. If you have any questions about the program, please don't hesitate to contact me at [email protected].
