Support A Community Centre In Kadugodi

Hello.We are Teach For India fellows associated with Government Model Primary School Kadugodi.

"In 5 years, private schools gain 17 million students, government schools lose 13 million". I was  shocked to see this and it kept me thinking why everyone wants their kid to be in a private school and what about the people who can't afford to pay the heavy fees of private schools. The students in government school are equally talented as the ones in private schools.The major thing that was lacking was the exposure. In private schools they have different activities in school where the kid gets hands on experience or he/she can afford different classes after school based on the interest.

What is it?
It is a community centre that has different activities : ART-DRAWING,DRAMA,MUSIC-SINGING & INSTRUMENT,ORIGAMI,CLAY MODELLING,READING STORY BOOKS,SPEAKING,CHESS,CRAFT,MEHENDI,RANGOLI,LANGUAGE CLASS,ROBOTICS,CODING.

Why are we doing this?
Here is our attempt to provide kids with the opportunity by starting a community centre. Our project  "SPARK" is a space where we have different activities for our kids.

When are we doing it?
Everyday after school

Why after school?
Last year the Practice for activities we did took away lot of teaching time for us + kids missing out on classes was our major concern.

How many are we impacting?
A class of 100+ students

How are we planning to do it?
By using technology. Setting up laptops learn from net, skype with field experts.
