I am fundraising to Project Weave

In the bustling community of of Dharavi 90 Feet Road, resides a quaint building that is brought to life by children brimming with exceptional talent  and dreaming their dreams. One of the many hindrances to their 'dreams' is an incapable infrastructure failing 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 math skills, technological support, parent engagement and participation of school management committee. Despite the myriad tools that are being provided, children are having difficulty learning as they have no tables or chairs to work with. They have to sit on the wet and damp floor in the humid, rainy weather of Mumbai throughout the day which poses challenge to their learning and health. 


Upon several discussions with the school teachers as to what can 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. Hence, it was decided to do the bare minimum to provide durable carpets for children as well as to reconstruct and smoothen the tiles on the floor, so that they could sit comfortably, away from the dirty and grim floor.  After talking to 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 Rs. 25,000.

The school is generating funds of Rs. 15,000 from the prize money they have received in this session and my aim is to arrange the remaining amount.

It would be of immense help if you can contribute towards this endeavor through selfless donations.

In case you are interested in further details, feel free to send an e-mail 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 donors updated on the usage of their funds through publishing a final accountability report.

Dear Supporters,

These beautiful kids cannot thank you enough! The entire floor has been reconstructed and carpeted, only because of your support!

The wonderful staff has taken a step ahead by tying up with several other organizations and set up chairs for these little ones. This infrastructural support is only a small drop in the ocean of love that can be provided to these dreamers.

However small it may be, is has brought ease and comfort to the students, with lower rates of absenteeism among them. It has also fostered discussions among the school management committee of other interventions for richer experiences of teaching and learning in this school.

Thank you for believing in this cause and giving impetus to it.

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.
