Street Accident in Bodhgaya

It is with great sorrow that we pass on some sad news from Bodhgaya. Two students from the Jeanamitabh orphanage recently passed away in a tragic street accident.

They were coming home from tuition when their bicycle was hit and run over by a bus driver suspected of drinking and driving.

The two students, Shambhu and Vikash, had just recently passed their matriculation exams with very good marks. They were both hard workers who came in early during the mornings to help out around the class. Both students were very affectionate and enjoyed joking with their peers.

The entire Jeanamitabh family has been affected by this great sorrow and is mourning the loss of both students.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the students as well as the extended family at Jeanamitabh.

The photos attached were taken a few days before the accident when both students were being awarded for passing their matriculation exams.

New Session Begins at Sunway!

By Ravi


We are now into April and this month marks the beginning of new sessions in schools.

Our children too are going to attend their new classes.

Most of our children received very good marks on their examinations. Some of them have secured more than eighty percent!

Their great performance gives us a new motivation and also adds to the desire to do more and better for them.

Thank you.

A beautiful good evening to all of you. It is now the examination period for all students at our boarding school.

So all students are very busy and tired these days. Despite this, the kids show so much intelligence and always write their exams with all their heart.

Please give us your blessings and wish success in life for all the children.

Thank you.

News from Sunway

By Ravi


We have been very busy at Sunway with lots of activities. Among them, has been going on a trip to a hill station with all the children and celebrating group birthdays of the students. We celebrate their birthdays in groups in order to fill the kids with feelings of happiness and joy, something which has been only a dream for them so far.

Last year some children qualified for college and some of the Paper Kite volunteers interviewed those kids during their winter trip to India. We will be posting pictures from these events very soon!

Thank You!
