Help Teach for India fellows build a 'Community Centre'

I will build a space for free and compulsory education ...
What would you do if you had a Colosseum all for yourself?  Aarthi, all of twelve years, penned this down in her answer script. She believes in the power of education. She aims to be a future leader.
Then there's Senthamizh Selvi, a bright ten year old whose eyes spark with curiosity every time she opens a new book. She brims with  joy every time she translates the ideas in her book to her classmates.  
These are just few among our students whom we have come to see as future leaders in their under resourced community.
However, they do not have a space to foster their leadership skills, or pursue their favourite hobbies. Their homes, often are not conducive for learning, with absolutely no room for imagination. Despite the odds, our students’ commitment to learning is immense.They are aware that investing in their education can help them change their life trajectory in a meaningful way.
As a school team, we envision our students to be self aware individuals who know their strengths and can leverage them.Keeping this vision in mind, we are creating a community center for our student which will foster their curiosity and independent learning. Our community centre will drive digital literacy, skill development, career planning and extracurricular activities aligned with students interests. We aim to mould our students to become catalysts for change with leadership opportunities.

We are a team of 3 enthusiastic fellows:  Alamelu Kathiresan, Sanjana Rajaram, Shalini Ilanahai who are currently teaching class 6, 7 and 8 students at Corporation Girls Higher Secondary School, Nungambakkam. And if you think you can contribute to this initiative, please take a look at our needs for this year and contact us at:

Dear Supporters,

For the past couple of months academic support has been going on for all students and now we are looking forward for the summer to organize a wide variety of summer opportunities for kids. We are looking for volunteers who will be interested in sharing a skill of their choice with kids. Please do let us know if you would like to volunteer, you can contact us using the Contact Organizer option below.

And we really would appreciate your monetary support as we need funds to sustain the center successfully. Please do keep supporting us and sharing the campaign!

 Hello, Donors

Bhumi has been successfully conducting after-school academic classes for all students. While it also serves as a library and it also a self-learning space for all the other students in the community as well. It has grown into a beautiful space that nurtures creativity among all the students.

Thank You for all the support!
