Help Us Transform Classrooms Into Place of Holistic Learning

Transforming Classrooms into happy learning spaces!

We teach seventy six eighth graders here in Chennai Corporation School,Koyambedu. Koyambedu is known for its busiest vegetable market and the bus terminal, but behind the normalcy of its rush hour our school is the only hope for the community around, who are dominantly daily wage laborers and sellers at the market to get access to quality education.We, as Teach for India fellows in the school have been trying our best to create an enhanced learning experience for our kids through our lessons and engagements post school hours.




We are transforming the classrooms into a space build on core values of empathy, creativity and self-reliance. We have planned sessions, activities, field visits to work towards building such a space by March 2019. We truly believe once given the right access to resource the kids would themselves transform into enablers and change the course of their class, then their school and gradually their community. Myself, Anantharaman G and Kavin P on behalf of our seventy six change makers would like to request your support in our efforts to raise funds for effectively bringing in these changes. These are details of the expenses:

We will be extremely grateful for your support in any possible way. We'd like to thank you for your time here and appreciate how you have come this far to know our story.




As teachers and fellows of Teach for India we take full and sole responsibility to use the funds only for the above mentioned expense and reaching a collective good. Please feel free to call us or drop by our school to know more about the projects.

With high hopes,

A huge thank you to all Supporters!

It is with great happiness, that we put down this update.
Last friday, on 10/11/2018 we were able to take 15 of our "Creators" to Flintobox (A company that designs educational activity box for children). Here our kids, who were primarly interested to work with something engaging and creative got a chance to understand and learn the working of the company, the thought they put in to while designing a toy and hands on experience of working with the activity kit.

Kids thoroughly enjoyed learning from the toy makers, and their time visiting various stations at Flintobox's office here in Chennai.
One of the key take aways from this journey was the feedback shared by one of our student, K.Hariharan! who calls himself as "Victory architect K.Hari"  he mentioned how this experience could help reinforce his passion of becoming an architect one day and create meaningful constructions out of waste products.


We were able to make this jounrey a reality only with the support from our donors,who have been an amazing support right from the start of the campaign. We've raised 20% of the funds and have planned for other visits to inspire the remaining 61 of our kids.
We hope to recieve the same support and love!
Thank you all for reading this!
