Our HoPE Learning Centers Inspire Confidence

Lalitha

Lalitha joined one of Tripura Foundation’s HoPE Learning Centers about three years ago.

She is the youngest of six children.  She lost her mother at birth, and as the sole wage-earner, her father struggles to provide the basic necessities for himself and his children.

When she joined our HoPE Learning Center, Lalitha was a shy, nervous child. She never spoke to anyone other than her family and was clearly seen having a tough time making friends.

We found out that this was because she thought that children with mothers would never want to be friends with her.

Lalitha says, “I never had friends in my neighborhood before coming to HoPE Learning Center. On the very first day coming here I remember sitting alone in the corner and being very nervous seeing all the new faces. But, as my fellow mates started introducing themselves, I gradually came out of my shell. I found out that children liked me despite my extreme shyness.  They helped me overcome my fears, and my teachers helped a great deal in making me who I am now.”

“I am very grateful to the sponsors of HoPE Learning Centers for providing us daily snacks. For me and many others like me who suffer without a proper meal once a day, the snacks are the chief reason for our health.”

“The yoga and Phonemic Intelligence have helped me concentrate in academics, and I enjoy all the monthly activities held here. Studying in a local government school, my English was very poor, but I have been learning a lot from the HoPE Learning Center and it had greatly improved my language skills. Now, my father proudly says his daughter speaks English.”

“I can never really express how thankful I am to Tripura Foundation because it has given me a chance to survive and hope for my future. All of my happiest memories come from the time I’ve spent in the HoPE Learning Center, and I am very grateful for that.”
