    This fundraiser will benefit

    SGV School

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka


Ashwini is 6th grade student. At an age of 13, she is a Ted speaker. She has spoken about the “Power of belief” of and the impact that teachers can have by believing in their students. Ashwini is a student of Shree Ganga Vidyanikethan (SGV) School, Kadugudi where 396 students share ONE toilet.
Ashwini aspires to be an IAS officer.
Ashwini has a dream.
So, do 396 other children who study at Shree Ganga Vidyanikethan (SGV) School.
SGV School is located in the poor neighborhood of Kadugudi, Bangalore. Most the kids here belong to families of Contract workers who are employed as security guards, drivers and house help.
But the kids of SGV schools are not just dreamers they are doers. The kids of SGV School are champions in football.  They were the Champions from Bangalore who competed in the National Just for Kick tournament in Mumbai. In the process they even got opportunity to give interviews to Star Sports. However to keep these opportunities going we need funds to keep the teams alive. Not to mention these wannabe Messis are playing with the minimum infrastructure. We need to keep their dreams alive through access to better resources.

Not only football, these little overachievers won a Dramabaaz competition bagging the best screenplay award. These kids are brimming with talent and potential. With limited resources, they have the zeal and courage to seize every opportunity that shows up and give it all they have.

The TFI fellows in the school have put their heart and soul into making this school a temple of learning and knowledge as it was intended to be. But the equation contains another inevitable factor: Funds.
The funds collected through this campaign is intended for
Football registrations30000
Dramebaaz registrations9000
Transportation across the academic year44000
Sports equipment36000
Jerseys and Football Shoes14500
Drama Costumes8000
Total Funds141500

Oscar Wilde once said “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are aiming for the stars”. Ashwini and students of SGV, Kadugodi are those some. They are aiming for stars. Aided with the right support and resources, they can reach for them soon.
