An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest

We Shreeya, Soumya and Gilbert Ram are delighted to introduce to you our 93 rock stars of Chennai Corporation school MGR Nagar,Chennai, all set to conquer the world. Our children, a bunch of 5th graders are multifaceted and joyful kids, very eager to learn. They come from communities where parents work for a daily wage. Unequal access to resources, reduces their chances of receiving equal opportunities to learn.

Through the course of our fellowship with Teach for India in the last two months, we have observed most of our kids to be visual and auditory learners.

"The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it from you"-B.B King
We envision our kids to grow up to be intelligent, skilled individuals with a kind heart which highlights the true value of education devoid of rote learning.

We seek your help in enabling  our children immerse themselves in different ways of learning that will foster holistic development and a strong sense of community and social responsibility.
 The funds raised will go towards the following items in the current academic year for 93 kids in 3 classrooms-
Academics:
1. Reading resources and Experiment kits : books, dictionaries Rs. 55,800 (Rs.600 per student)
2. Student supplies : prints of study material, worksheets, assessments and activity books, notebooks, art material Rs.46,500 (Rs.500 per student)
3. Classroom resources : Benches and tables, Sound system, projector Rs.1,50,000 (3 classrooms)

5. External academic and co-curricular opportunities:  Sports equipment, Training and coaching fees, costumes and materials, transport and related logistics, Board games which enable to build vocabulary Rs.1,50,000 (includes resources for whole school)

We welcome any kind of help we can get, be it in the form of donations, materials or knowledge, and your well wishes and blessings for our kids.

We extend our deepest gratitude to everyone who has contributed towards making a sustainable difference and building an environment where our children can play, learn, and grow to become independent thinking and responsible individuals
