Hello FCN... I am Venkatesh Ravuri. It’s a great moment in my life to express my thanks to my sponsors as well as to the FCN cofounders. I am born in a poor family and live in a rural village. My mother passed away in the year 2004. I have an older brother and a sister. My father found it hard to grow anything in our land due to failure of seasonal rains. I have started receiving the educational help from FCN since 5 years. Right now I am doing my Bachelor of Science final year with the kind support of my sponsors. Millions of thanks to FCN and to my Sponsors!
Hello ... I am Madhavi. I am doing my final year General Nursing. If not for FCN support, I would not have continued my dream of becoming a nurse. My father has passed away in a road accident almost 16 years back. I have two younger sisters who are doing their studies too. After the death of our father, it was a big struggle for our mother to take care of the family with her small earning as a day laborer. I started receiving FCN sponsorship for my studies from 11th grade. I owe my sincere thanks to FCN as well as to my sponsors who have helped me generously all these years. Thank you FCN family!
My name is Prabhavathi Kalapolu. I have two brothers. I have finished my schooling in Fr. Francis Memorial High School in Hyderabad. My father abandoned us in 2006 and from then my mother shoulders the responsibilities of our family. She works as a day laborer and struggles to educate us. She almost stopped me to send to school. With divine intervention, our principal understood our pathetic situation and came forward to support me through FCN. I am blessed to receive the support from this Foundation for my education since 2006. Currently I am doing my 1st year Diploma in Computer Engineering. I wholeheartedly thank my Sponsors and Cofounders of FCN for transforming my life.

Hello! This is Somashekar. I am from a rural village Tellabadu. Now I am in 7th grade and have to travel few miles every day to reach my school. My mother died in 2012 due to meningitis. It was a shock to me and the entire family. It was also difficult for my father to take care of the needs of the family and to educate us. At the time when my father was unable to meet the expenses of my education, FCN extended its helping hand to me with sponsorship support. I am studying in FCN School and reside in the hostel for the past five years. My father and I thank the sponsors for being very kind. ‘Big Thanks’ to Dr. Geetha and Tom Chitta our FCN Cofounders.

My name is Kamalamma Jekkam. I am 72 years old. I grew up like many other uneducated women in an extremely poor family. I never had the opportunity of going to school. They worked as agricultural day laborers and did not have a stable income and lived always in poverty. They passed away from this world handing over that poverty to me. I lived with my husband for 30 years in our native village at Kondapeta in Kadapa district by working as a day laborer. My husband died 28 years back and I became a widow without children. Life became tough for me after the death of my husband. I worked in the hot sun to feed and cloth me. Slowly I started suffering from severe knee pain. My eyes started giving me trouble and I suffered regular headache. I found it hard to work. I came to St. Xavier’s Home and live here with human dignity for the past 10 years. We are given nourishing food in time and excellent rooms with cots, beds, blankets and mosquito nets. We have a well experienced nurse under the direction of Dr. Geetha, available at anytime with medical care. I thank FCN and all my sponsors for changing my life from despair to hope with their noble sacrifice and generosity. I am happy to be in this circle of sharing and caring home. May God bless the co-founders of FCN for founding this home.
