I'm Himanshu walia currently doing my fellowship at Teach for India. Before joining this fight towards educational equity, I worked as an audit associate at KPMG for 1.5 years after completing my graduation from University of Delhi in 2015.
Many times I have been asked this question, why did I choose fellowship over a big four? The answer is simple; I identified purpose of my life and choose to pursue it.
I teach 30 first grade kids (11 girls and 19 boys) at a low income private school in Jafrabad, Seelampur Delhi. Kids are 5-8 years old and have varied learning style. But they all learn really well through visual aid. Various studies suggest that kids are more likely to remember a concept through visual aid. Plus it makes learning so much interesting and fun. However, the best way to impart learning is through involvement. I’m raising funds to buy projector and a printer to address the need of every student in my classroom. In addition to it, money contributed by you would be utilized to set up a library for my classroom because “reading is to the mind, what exercise is to the body.” The goal is to raise required funds by the beginning of December 2017 but its success much likely depend on your contribution.
With love and sense of possibility,
