If we teach today as we taught yesterday, then we rob our children of tomorrow.

We as Fellows and teachers believe in bridging the gap that exists in today's education system. We believe we make a small difference everyday in our classroom towards addressing the issue of educational inequity. 

As Teachers of a 6th standard classroom that is largely made up of children from the surrounding area of Chetpet, an area that has transitioned from fierce violence to hard labour we know the struggle that our children face everyday to make all the right choices. We are doing our bit to make this choice a way of life for the children we teach everyday. A small step in that direction is a safe and consistent learning space - a classroom. 

Currently they are housed in an open hall that is often used for school functions and training sessions. Every time an event happens students are made to make do with the veranda or grounds. We have identified a classroom but it needs a lot of work before it can be used because of years of neglect. We are looking at carpentry work, painting, cupboards replacement, electric wiring safety and in addition we would also like to make a more tech connected classroom for the children. Additional funds will be used for benches, field trips and supplementing their library. The money will be directly and strictly only used by us teachers towards the students' needs. Carpenters have already visited us and have presented us with quotations. We have already started other pressing work with our limited funds, but we would really appreciate every single rupee that could come our way to bridge the gap we struggle with everyday, as soon as possible. 

Since we are not allowed to share photos on social media, a bare minimum few only have been uploaded. You are always welcome to volunteer with us or just visit us at any given point of time. Please contact us for more details at the given below.

Thank you for doing your bit to give our children the Excellent education they deserve. 
If there are any queries or any ideas to support us in this journey we would love to hear from you. Please do not think twice. I did too for a long time. But somewhere inside we all know that change starts from within. Big or small, unless we put a step forward today we are robbing our children of a revolutionised tomorrow.
