MISSION- CHANGE CPS CB Road Grade 5

Welcome to our world. It’s a world of adventure and fun. A space where we learn about the world and ourselves. We learn and question and explore together. It’s a big world for us.
But our world is getting smaller each day. The walls around us are closing in.
We are a class of 60 5th graders and 2 Teach For India Fellows, in one of the most at-risk communities in the Northern part of Chennai. WE strive each day to push back at all that's pushing us down. WE hear that we aren't good enough, that we won’t make it past these walls and that our spirits will forever be trapped here.
In the last 1 year, we have shown the world that nothing can and will hold us down. Our spirits soar high in situations that most cannot fathom. But now we need your help. WE are nearing the end of our ropes. Resources are needed to help us in our fight against the walls of educational inequity, of imbalance in what we receive and the whole of the system of which we aren't a part. WE require funds for the following:
Stationery
1200/month
Books to build a library
10,000
First aid
1000
Workbooks
5000
Field trips
20,000(for 2 per year)
Indoor and outdoor sports
10,000
Projector
10,000
TOTAL
66,800


Our exposure is limited to the two streets that we were born in. Help us to break down the walls of our world to see beyond and reach for a future that we know we can! These walls are made of stone, these walls are in our minds and they can be broken...,

Hi All,

On the 4th of February, our students took part in the Chennai Students Kondattam, hosted by Teach For India Fellows Chennai. It was an amazing time with the kids taking part in sports, creative writing, charades, drama, design for change, greeting card and clay design.

There were many more events where they got much needed exposure with friendly competition. They made new friends and new memories.

Thanks to all your help, we were able to hire a vehicle and also provide all the necessary materials for the competition.

Dear Supporters,

In the last term(Term-2, Oct-Dec), the following were accomplished:

1. Setting up a library in class with Pratham books.
2. Field trip to Dakshin Chitra museum as a reward for kids who performed well in term exams.
3. Printing of math and reading workbooks.
4. Inviting a professional to train students in puppet making and theater.
5. Purchase of teaching aid to help with fundamental math skills from "Jodo Gyan Shiksha".
6. Purchase of charts and monthly stationery.

We had a fantastic term 2, notwithstanding all the interruptions. A big thank you to all of you who made it possible. As we enter into our final term we look for your continued support.

Thank you
CPS CB Road G5.

Dear supporters,
I bring you the latest news from our world. We managed to purchase a duplex printer(Rs. 12,000) last week. This will limit us outsourcing our printing efforts and in the long run save costs. Additionally, this will also ensure that we have a printer in school which will benefit other classrooms as well.
We have also managed to purchase resources for the coming term beginning in October- rough notes, handwriting notes, stationery, gift items as incentives(Rs. 8,000).
We are now looking to procure books of different reading levels so as to ensure maximum exposure to the English language and to broaden and deepen their comprehension skills.
Thank you all so much for the support. We will be having a week of exams beginning on the 18th  September, followed by a week of holiday.
Stay tuned for more updates
