Why am I fundraising?

I believe that every child can and must attain an excellent education. I want to bridge the immense gaps my children face, putting my students on a fundamentally different life path. I am undergoing a Fellowship Program with Teach for Inda where I have got this opportunity to impact the life of amazingly wonderful and potential 75 kids from the slums of Govandi, Mumbai. I teach in a municipal school in Govandi. I believe with quality education these kids will further create a ripple towards the movement I am part of and one day we will attain our vision of excellent education for every child in India.

What do I plan to do with the funds?

You can reach out to me personally for any queries related to the funds used towards. I will regularly share updates to all supporting towards the cause on how funds are used and initiatives undertaken with the help of funds raised.


As a part of our fellowship with Teach for India since the last one and a half years, I and Somdatta Karak have been actively involved in teaching and developing 70 under-privileged kids studying in class VII at Deonar Colony Municipal School, Govandi, Mumbai.

While Teach for India provides us with resources sufficient for the basic school facilities it becomes imperative we take an extra effort to give our students an exposure to the other realms of life. This is going to be these students' last year in this school and with TFI.

Hence, both Somdatta and I have decided to raise resources for our class.

The main events for which we need to raise money for our students are:

1. Star gazing event with Khagol Mandal, Mumbai for a whole night inclusive of dinner, tea and snacks.

2. Participation of the girls in Annual Football Tournament, organized by Teach for India.

3. Student-led science exhibition at the end of the academic year.

The resources gathered will help us to provide an excellent education to our students.

Help us to reach this goal by donating for the cause.
