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:
Books to build a library
First aid
Field trips
20,000(for 2 per year)
Indoor and outdoor sports

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...,

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
