I am Tejas, currently in my second year of fellowship with Teach For India. first year, I taught thirty 3rd graders at a low income private school in Bangalore. We almost managed to bridge the learning and outcome gap, which was a huge success point for me and my students. As I entered my second year, I realized how important my job is. So, I thought, maybe, take one more step in the direction of mentoring as many students as I can during the fellowship. Hence, I took up the responsibility of one more classroom. So in total I have 60 students to mentor this year. I really wish to maximize my efforts and positively impact the lives of so many children, especially the ones belonging to the disadvantaged communities. One of the ways I could think of is through making plethora of resources available to them for access and exposure. So, that's when I thought of initiating efforts towards building a school library for ALL the children of our school.
The funds raised through this campaign will be used to set up a school library, which will directly help them improve their reading ability, build communication skills, and help them gain awareness about themselves and the world around them. So kindly, take a little time out from your busy lives and donate as much as possible. Please please do the needful. Each and every rupee matters!
