Help In Buying A Projector & A Printer For School Students

I'm Himanshu walia currently doing my fellowship at Teach for India. Before joining this fight towards educational equity, I worked as an audit associate at KPMG for 1.5 years after completing my graduation from University of Delhi in 2015.
Many times I have been asked this question, why did I choose fellowship over a big four? The answer is simple; I identified purpose of my life and choose to pursue it.
I teach 30 first grade kids (11 girls and 19 boys) at a low income private school in Jafrabad, Seelampur Delhi. Kids are 5-8 years old and have varied learning style. But they all learn really well through visual aid. Various studies suggest that kids are more likely to remember a concept through visual aid. Plus it makes learning so much interesting and fun. However, the best way to impart learning is through involvement. I’m raising funds to buy projector and a printer to address the need of every student in my classroom. In addition to it, money contributed by you would be utilized to set up a library for my classroom because “reading is to the mind, what exercise is to the body.” The goal is to raise required funds by the beginning of December 2017 but its success much likely depend on your contribution.
To know in detail about my work, kindly reach out to me at himanshu.w2017@teachforindia.

With love and sense of possibility,
Himanshu Walia.

Dear Friends,

Once again, a BIG THANK YOU for supporting this campaign! Together, we spread awesomeness :)

You would be glad to know that through your support, I set up a printer on 20/1/2018 for my classroom. Ask me, how did it help? I have printed close to 1000 worksheets using this printer and some 400 worksheets from outside when the printer was in process. And it is noticeably changing the learning outcomes for my classroom.

If we are connected on Facebook or if you have seen any of the videos that I shared, you know how classroom earlier looked like a dull space. I partnered with Labhya foundation to turn the classroom into an enriching space. They helped me design and paint the classroom. Have a look at one of the Illustration and changed classroom here.

Today, I have received the Projector finally. It took a lot of time and research to find the right projector that suits need and budget of my classroom. But now its finally here, I'm hopeful that I would be able to share artefacts with you showing the learning outcomes in the next academic session.

Stay tuned for the future updates, in the meanwhile, remember what Nelson Mandela once said, "Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world."

Much love and Gratitude,
