"If I'm ever stranded, I hope it's in a book store"
Teach for India is an organisation that believes in giving all children an excellent education. I'm pursuing my fellowship with them, at a school in Govandi, Mumbai, called Ja'fari English High School. I teach English to 138 children of Standard 9. My students come from a community where violence is high. They come from a community where there is a lot of gender discrimination. They have no exposure to the world outside Govandi.
I thought about how I could try to change this. I thought about what made me who I am today. The answer was very simple- books. I'm planning on introducing a variety of books like 'The Kite Runner', 'Persepolis', 'Maus' and many more so I could build empathy.

I'm planning on using the money I raise for buying/photocopying books. It will also be used for school/classroom supplies.
