From begging in the streets to regular student
Adamma & her siblings lived with their parents at the bus stand in the city of Mapuca in Goa. The parents were beggars! The children were in a filthy condition and followed the same profession as their parents.
Our Field worker found this family and gave counseling. The parents were adamant and refused to change their way of life! Our worker convinced them that the children have a right to a proper Childhood and Education and convinced them to enroll them with El Shaddai. Adamma is the second youngest of the five (3 boys & 2 girls). Adamma because of her age was given residence in the House of Kathleen our home for girls between the ages of 3 & 8 yrs, where she was given a bath, clean clothes and a bed. She was admitted on the Feb 05, 2005.
Adamma started her schooling in the Kindergarten at Shanti Niketan School. She proved to be a polite, well mannered child. Adamma took to hostel life and school like a fish to water! Although a little slow in school work in the begining, she picked up well and showed good progress as the months passed. She works hard enjoys the company of children of her own age. Her progress is very positive and she is now studying in grade 3 and stays in House of Kathleen.
