    Trishala Yadav

    from Pune, Maharashtra

Hi, my name is Trishala and I'm a Teach for India 2016 fellow teaching 120 8th graders in Anjali English Medium School, Wadgaon Sheri, Pune. The class I teach is at a critical point in their academic lives where according to the Maharashtra State Board, no child can be failed till 8th Grade, but if they fail the final exam of 8th Grade, they are not promoted any further.
This year our endeavour is to make sure that all our 120 kids pass the 8th grade Govt. Baseline exam in May, 2018. This goal stands in the face of obstacles like 40 children cannot read 8th grade text and 25 can't read a Grade 4 text.

Most of these children drop out of schools after failing the 8th grade exam.

With such odds, holidays are our worst enemies as children below Reading Level 5 drop at least one reading level within 15 days, which is why we provided them customised homework sheets that I have planned for them exclusively for the entire holiday so they don't lose touch with their own progress.

What do I need funds for:
120 children. 12 days holidays. 1 reading comprehension exercise for each day of 20 pages each at 0.80re/page = 23, 040.
I need your help to make sure that these children reach their reading level goals for this year and lack of funds in the classroom doesn't become a hurdle for them.
