Why am I fundraising?
My daughter is a Teach For India Fellow. She teaches a bunch of adorable 3rd Graders in a government school in Pune.These kids come from houses with an annual income of less than 50,000-60,000. But they still come to school with the biggest smile on their faces, not letting anything bog them down. They have overcome all these odds to make more than a year's worth of growth in 8-9 months in reading, writing and Math. They have grown so much in the last year that I want to help my daughter make a greater difference.
The school has barely functioning toilets, no drinking water system, no books, no sports kits for kids to play, in short, they have nothing in school apart from a teacher and a few benches.
Any funds that will help in setting these children on a different life path by equipping them with an excellent education will be of immense help :)
What do I plan to do with the funds?
The funds will be used toa) establish a library (with at least 250 + books)
b) install a drinking water system
c) equip the toilets (expansion etc) to be able to be used by 150 + students
d) purchase sports equipment for the school
Invoices of all the purchases made will be sent to the donor, to maintain transparency.
