Equip Students Of Saidapet

We are Maharaja, Shivaranjani and Dravina, year 1 fellows with Teach For India. We are teaching 290 plus students of grade 7 in Government higher secondary school, Saidapet. We are overwhelmed to say about the experiences we have had teaching these energetic children for the past 6 months. We have never experienced such multitude of emotions over a small period of time. The reason is simply due to the actions of these kids we have witnessed on each passing day. Unfortunately, we have realized that the amount of exposure and opportunities these kids have are not even comparable to that of their private school counterparts. This is deeply disturbing as we feel that the potential available in this classroom can be tapped for greater things yet alarmingly it has a great chance of going unnoticed.

We have never seen a diverse bunch of multi talented kids whose potential awaits to be unleashed. We take immense pleasure, responsibility and joy for having such a great opportunity to be with these amazing students and observe their simple lives and see and share their joys with them as a friend. 

We want to bring about positive change in the lives of these kids both as a teacher and as an inspirational friend. 
We plan to initiate and sustain some activities for these kids in the current academic year as we strongly believe that where they come from should never decide where they go. We have a strong conviction that education is the key lever to empower them to achieve their goals. 
The following are the things we have planned, for which we need the monetary support.
  1. Entry to Competitive Exams like Olympiad
  2. Public speaking training
  3. Sports equipments and Football kits for the students
  4. Projectors, speakers, Desktops/tabs
  5. Stationeries
  6. Study materials, Activity books, dictionaries
  7. Field trips
  8. Simple laboratory equipments for the science lab
  9. Career Fair
  10. Classroom leveled library
We request you to support us on this journey. You too can make a difference in their lives. A huge thank you for your contributions, in advance!

Dear supporters,
We have started a new space in the community, for hight school students and primary school. This is an after school center that has started to function from July 5th.
We believe that this will sustain their exposure to opportunities and learning skills, as they get time off academics.
Please support us in this initiative.

Thank you!

Dear Supporters,

We are going to be setting up a community centre at Saidapet for students to get benefited by an after-school program. The proposed space shall provide exposure and opportunities for students.

Differentiated support has been planned, as per student needs so that they will benefit the maximum. Exposure visits and skill building will be the focus. Space is expected to become a parent - lead in a year's time, to ensure sustainability.

Your donation shall help us provide them a safe space for their personal development.

Thank you!

Dear Supporters, 

Here is an update regarding the campaign. 

Teach For India, Chennai fellows have made a collaboration with an NGO called Avanti. There the students will be provided with a very basic curriculum. It will include aptitude learning and basic maths problems to help the students.

They are also focusing on providing stationary for these students. The students will be provided with books, and flex posters to provide better cultural sense to the students.

They are also looking at Adolescent NGOs to partner with so that sex education can be provided to the students.

Right now summer vacations are going on, and the proposal will be implemented in mid-June sometime.

Thank you for the wonderful support.

Team Milaap.
