Most of the kids at Operation Shanti attend Deepa Primary and Middle School near our children's home. The school provides a very solid education but the students have very little in terms of sports equipment during PE/PT time. The school is geared to poor children from nearby villages. School fees are reasonable and the school consistently passes 97% to 100% of its kids in the nationwide 10th (SSLC) grade exam. Sure would be nice for the kids to have some balls, cricket bats, jump ropes...!

"Management" seems lacking in its ability to provide these to the kids in school, and the kids usually sit around in a circle during PE/PT time while the teacher plays with one child. (Us: "Can you give the kids some balls, sports equipment?" Management: "Oh yes yes." Three years later...)

The school's PE/PT teacher often asks us for equipment but we don't have very much to part with and we like to keep on hand some equipment at Karunya Mane for our kids to use during their playtime. So, we'd like to raise a small sum of money to use to purchase some PT/PE equipment for the kids at Deepa School. The cost of such equipment is as follows:

play balls - 250 rps ($5.00) each
volleyballs - 500 rps ($10.00) each
cricket set - 250 rps ($5.00) each
tennis balls - 250 rps ($5.00) for 3
football/soccer ball - 300 rps ($6.00) each
badminton racquet - 200 rps ($4.00) each
badminton shuttles - 500 rps ($10.00) for 10
jump/skipping rope - 250 rps ($5.00) each

School starts on May 29 in India. Let's raise $500 within 30 days to get the kids at this school some sports equipment! These kids would greatly benefit from your donation of even $5.00 for a playball! Thanks so much for your support!
