October 2013

Stuart and I have just returned from another visit to Sri Lanka and India to check up on the progress of all our projects.

In India we were very pleased with the progress in completing our new home for our ‘STB Children’. The response to our appeal in April was wonderful. After 17 years of moving from rented house to rented house, it will be a bonus to have the
permanent home and more settling for the children.

In Sri Lanka we are launching our new ‘Buy a Gift for Christmas’’ project and happily report that there is now light at our little East Coast School of Aranculam. Our teachers have their bicycles and we have two new toilets being built.

A big thank you to all our kind supporters.

April 2013 Update

It’s been a busy few months since our last update, and we are thrilled at the progress that your generous support has enabled; you can read about developments in both India and Sri Lanka by down loading our new  NEWSLETTER

  • Electricity for a forgotten school
  • Pawalam’s house now built
  • Our new Chicken Farm project...

New Home for Indian Orphans

This project is moving quickly now, and, as you can see from the picture, is two thirds of the way there.  You can imagine how excited the children are about their new home!

In order to complete this permanent home for our ‘Save the Babies” family, we need a further £10 000 and are launching a special appeal to this end.  Excitingly, a generous supporter of Star Action has promised to match every pound donated for this appeal up to £5 000 so your generosity will be doubled!

 

It’s easy to donate – find out how here.

October Update

Dear Friends and Supporters of Star Action,

I am delighted to tell you that we have received wonderful support for our emergency appeals for our destitute war widow Pawalam in Mankerny, Eastern Sri Lanka.

Thanks to your generosity, we have been able to go straight ahead and built her little house. She is now safe and dry, with new clothes for herself and all the children (these made by our sewing machine lady Sutharsini). She is so very grateful to Star Action. Thank you.

We have also received further wonderful help for our ‘Build a Toilet’ project, and this means that we can go forward with the building of two more toilets.

Great appreciation to everyone.

Love and greeting from Jenny

Little Temples for World Peace – News Update September 2012

Sri Lanka

 

 

During our recent time in Sri Lanka, August 2012, I spent as much time as I could meditating in the Little Temple for World Peace by the sea.  Stuart joined me for sunset prayers and meditation.  We both believe that there is increasing spiritual power in this Little Temple, which has been of significance in bringing about the current peace in Sri Lanka.

July Update

“Save the Babies Home”
The last 6 weeks have been the hottest of the year in Tamil Nadu and the children have been enjoying their school summer holidays.  Nine of them stayed with us at the Home as they are effectively orphans and the others went to relatives for some or all of the time.

June Update

Kate (Neil) has just returned from her annual summer visit to our STB Children.

They are enjoying school holiday time now and Kate reports that they are all well and happy!

More news of the new house building project to follow in her report.

May update

” Thank you to all our readers for your terrific response to the recent appeal in our Newsletter “
You have sent us enough to begin the construction of the house for the children in South India, and the foundations were started after a little ceremony at the beginning of May.    Boring at the site found good water at 90 feet and we have completed the well down to 300 feet (see photos).
Our children are helping as ‘building labourers’ during their school summer holiday this month.

Greeting from Jenny

My dear friends and supporters of Star Action,

I have recently returned from a very rewarding visit to Sri Lanka and India, with my colleague and co-founder of Star Action, Stuart.

We try to visit Sri Lanka twice a year, if possible, but certainly each February, so we can personally check on the progress of all the up and running projects and oversee the initiation of new endeavours.  This visit has been very fruitful and I am particularly excited about our new community education project in the remote and formerly war-torn East Coast village of Mankerny, and also our ‘build a toilet’ scheme in a very poor fishing community on the West Coast.

Star Action Families

A Star Action Family

In our last Newsletter we wrote about three individual families in our care in Sri Lanka, including our ‘triplets family’ and the family caring for our Little Temple.  Although Maria, our ‘Temple guardian’ with her daughter Mabel and granddaughter Wasana) has now lost her elderly husband last September, and then sadly suffered a stroke herself, she is recovering well and has nearly regained the use of her left side, learning to walk again with a stick.  All our families are very appreciative of Star Action’s care and support.

The triplet family are now self-supporting and all five children doing well—the two older girls being particularly clever at school.

Asiakwa Project

Latest News March 2012

Fred and Hamida are working for some months now in Kumasi, not far from Asiakwa.  After a recent visit Hamida says: ‘We are currently putting the finishing touches to the building.’ She goes on to say that she has begun her teaching work at Kumasi University.  We are all hoping that this will help her with the next stage of the project to get government grants and assistance from the Ghanaian Education Authorities in beginning the actual equipping and teaching work in the Centre.
