Hi, My name is Pranitha, I am a TeachForIndia Fellow. I am teaching a bunch of super enthusiastic 2nd graders at an under resourced school run by the Corporation of Chennai at Pulianthope (North Chennai). My kids really are from a modest background. It’s really hard for kids if their parents can’t afford the basic needs and supplies. Initially my kids didn't know how to read or write English. But now my kids really surprised me by reading short stories like “TIT FOR TAT” & “JUNGLE BOOK”. I have seen an incredible transformation in my kids for past four months and this has truly made me believe that they deserve a better education. I am trying to create as many opportunity for my CHAMPIONS in the coming months for them to understand and explore the world around them. I am fundraising on Milaap for my students and the amount raised here would go towards: 1. Floor Benches: My students are right now sitting on the floor and they couldn't sit and write properly. 2. Projectors for exposure and access and bringing technology to the classroom 3. Books: Read aloud story books for building a mini library 4. Stationary likes pencils, scales, colour papers, charts 5. Board games for activities during class sessions.
