Do take out a few minutes to read our story and help us out in our fight against Ed inequity.
What we have realized recently is how we are incapable of solving all the problems we encounter, all by ourselves.
Our kids come from an underprivileged Muslim community called Danilimda in Ahmedabad. Most of them stay in one-room houses with a family size ranging from 3 to even 12. More than financial deprivation, its effects have been ugly and deteriorating their lifestyle, of which the most bothering being poor values and mindsets. The behavioral issues we face have seen no bounds, from fights leading to bloodshed and abuses, to some kids not wanting to sit and study 99% of the times. The kids being first generation language learners lack the right support from home when it comes to literacy, thus ebbing the learning outcomes. Furthermore, the school lacks a library and probably all the systems that we once had as students.
Our kids are really sharp and bright. It is hard for anyone to believe the first time they enter the classroom because all you'll find is a large bunch of kids who love jumping around rather than sitting in their seats. Being in the classroom for an year now, their swift brains and smartness is what makes us hopeful for the year ahead. They have the potential, what they lack is the opportunity.
Untying the knot:
Catering to the needs of a such a large number hasn't been in our individual capacities and thus we request your support to help us provide the requisite resources.
Your contributions will be utilised for the following purposes:
1. School library and shelves: We wish to start a proper library system for our kids where they can borrow books, read and return turn-wise.
2. Puzzles and learning materials: for building their motor skills, cognitive skills, problem solving capacity and even providing them with a sense of achievement and appreciation.
3. Classroom and sports supplies: For activity based learning, lessons and physical training.
The love we are ushered with, despite of everything is something that will be passed onto you, for your generous contribution. Their capacity to love knows no bounds either.
