I teach because I believe “No dream should ever surrender”
As many of you know I am working as a fellow with Teach For India Ahmedabad. With a vision to provide excellent education to all children we teach in underprivileged schools across 7 cities in country. I teach in one such schools in Ahmedabad. I teach 39 brave 5th graders , each having high hopes and vision to be life long learner. Keeping this in mind I thought of creating a classroom library with books from Indian context and puzzles. Below is the detail of our campaign.
Giving every dream a chance !
Have you ever thought what if every dream is given a chance, what if every wings are given a chance to fly. What if every why is encouraged. What if every child believes in himself/herself.
When we were children, books rendered us a gateway to imagine, to wonder, to dream, why not remove this as some far fetched privilege and give this basic accessibility where they read and grow and wonder.
Here, we have thought about a couple of books for all age groups, with our own familiar Indian settings, so that kids understand a world outside their own small world, where they live.
Any sort of help is appreciated. Please help us getting a step closer in giving them basic things to help grow.
Here’s how we will add colors to their dreams :
1. Books for library : “Tulika” books , “Pratham” books and books from “The irrelevant project”
(All these books are contextual) : 8000 rs.
2. Math puzzles and English board games : 2000 rs.
Thank you Bhaiya and Didi in Advance,
