    This fundraiser will benefit

    Students of Class 9A and 10A of Utkarsha EMS Pune

    from Pune

We are Teach For India fellows who teach at a low income private school in Pune, Utkarsha English Medium School. We teach 58 students in Grade 10 and 63 students in grade 9.
Most of the students come from financially difficult backgrounds and find it difficult to pay the fees and are reluctant to be a part of other extra-curricular activities due to financial constraints. Students often tend to dropout from school and we are trying to avoid that (despite having a bright performance in academics and extracurriculars).
75% of the total students  are under high performing bucket out of which 90% are financially deprived.The quality of education that they are getting from the Teach For India fellows is somehow now overpowered by the indifference of the parents due to their background.
Funds collected will be utilized for student development in the following domains:1) Encouraging the meritorious students via need based scholarships
2) Most of the students don't want to take part in Olympiads,inter school sports, quiz and debate competitions because  they cannot bear the expenses incurred in these activities. We are trying to provide them with financial support to express and expose themselves at a bigger platform.
3) student development (such as internships,case study championship, etc.)
4)Transforming science lab in the school

Your support will indeed make a difference in the lives of these students.
