As many of you know, I have been working at Teach for India for a year and a half, in a low-income government aided school in Bangalore. I teach forty one kids in my class and work with around a hundred more for extra curricular activities in school. In the last year and a half, my main focus has been to try to provide my kids with some of the opportunities and exposure that I received growing up.

To this end, we have enrolled them in a football programme that provides them with coaching and football shoes and equipment, and also gives them the chance to play with other schools in a tournament. Not only have they exhibited immense talent and hard work, but also have brought back the qualities and values that sports promotes, like discipline and dedication, to the classroom.

I also encourage my kids to explore their creativity through technology, art and craft, and urge them to read all about the world around them.

To help me continue to provide the kids with these opportunities through the next year, click on the donate button and contribute (generously ;) ). Donations will be used to register our football teams next year for the programme, for buying books for the children, and for art and craft and other classroom supplies.

Spread the festive cheer this year by bringing more smiles to my classroom and school! 

Any help is appreciated.
