It takes a village to raise a child. I strongly believe every experience of a child would go a long way in shaping his/her future.
A dose of Inspiration and some idealism made my life intersect with a bunch of sweet kids who find their home in North Chennai. Kids who do not have access to the privilege of a lot of things - Books, toys, technology, love, family, security, shelter, even parents.
As I am now acutely aware of what they are blissfully unaware of, I am all the more determined to provide an excellent education to them, to give them the wings of independence - directly and indirectly.
Here I am - a conduit for all good-hearted individuals like you who believe in spreading greater goodness and love in the world.
At the moment, I need your support to procuring basic classroom amenities and access to learning aids. The funds raised will go toward these:
1. Technology enabled learning - robust, low cost tablets with education apps and digital learning aids.
2. Classroom library with graded reading to open pathways for a nourished mind.
3. Play-based learning through toys and board games to not miss out the joy in learning.
4. Field trips and exposure activities to broaden the child's worldview and to whet her curiosity, her appetite to scale new heights.
Your contribution of as little as Rs. 500 would mean so much to every student in my classroom. Please join my cause - every support matters! If you cannot contribute, please share it on Facebook, Twitter or other social tools you use.
