Why am I fundraising?
I teach a bunch of energetic and intelligent 8th grade kids at an underprivileged school in Mumbai. With your help we can together support the education of 10 higher order kids and help them succeed in the 9th grade and the 10th grade SSC examination.
I have researched on the various after-school coaching classes that are located in the slums where these kids reside. Rather than choose the best, I have selected one that is close to their homes so that kids are motivated to attend all classes even during heavy Mumbai monsoon conditions and without having to spend on transportation. I have negotiated a concessional rate too. The tution fees per child for both the years is Rs.30,000.
What do I plan to do with the funds?
Your contributions will be utilized to sponsor 10 kids to a reputed coaching class for both 9th and 10th grade. Given that the school coaching is inadequate, I believe that they will benefit significantly if they receive tutelage from expert teachers after school. It would help them attain mastery in all subjects, improve their confidence, bring them at par with privileged students and set them on a path to success. A strong academic foundation will help them further their academic and career ambitions. I am counting on your help and support with this project. Please send in your contributions to bring the light of knowledge to these underprevileged kids from the slums of Mumbai.
