I am fundraising to Project Weave

In the slums of Dharavi 90 Feet Road, resides a community of children brimming with talent  to achieve their dreams. One of the many hindrances to their dreams is an incapable infrastructure to provide a conducive environment for learning.

I have been closely working with the school principal Tabassum Aapa for 2 years addressing manifold issues of Drop Out, English and Maths skills, Technology, Parent Engagement and participation of School Management Committee. Despite the many tools and support that are being provided, children are having difficulty learning as they have no tables or chairs. They have to sit on the floor in the humid, rainy weather of Mumbai throughout the day which poses a challenge to their learning. 


On discussion with the school teachers as to what could be done to address the issue of infrastructural incapabilities, we initially sought to buy foldable cardboard desks from 'Help Desk'. However, the idea of a foldable cardboard would not sustain in Mumbai. Therefore, it was decided to do the bare minimum to set durable carpets for the children with smoothened flooring so that they could sit comfortably, away from the dirty and grim floor.  Upon discussion with the local manufacturers of rugs and carpets in Dharavi, the estimated cost of setting up the carpet as well as the flooring for 4 classrooms is coming up to be of Rs. 25,000.

The school is generating funds of Rs. 15,000 from the prize money they have recieved in this session and I am aiming to arrange rest of the money from my end.

It would be of great help if you can contribute towards this endeavour through selfless donations

In case you want to know the details, feel free to send me an e-mail me on bhavya1492@gmail.com.


The donors can get in touch with me personally and ask for the progress on the funds being used.

I take it as my duty to keep all the donors updated on the usage of their funds through publishing a final accountability report.

Thank you everyone for your immense supprt.
The money is with the school staff of Dharavi Crossroad 2. They are in negotiation with the land lord and will be starting the carpetting after having waited for humidity to subside which can affect durability of the material. The work should be completed by December.
