About the campaign

Please reach out to me at sriniswaminathan80@gmail.com if you have any questions

Growing up in a low income community family, staying in school and going to college on a Government scholarship changed my life. Following my long term wish, I became a full time teacher for two years at a Municipal school in Dharavi, Mumbai (2010-12) There, I got to see how children in such classrooms lack the basic resources needed to learn well and stay on grade level.

What is this campaign for?
1. I am raising funds for 15+ low income community classrooms in Chennai and Hyderabad to buy basic resources (books, projector screen, furniture, computer monitors, stationery etc). These classrooms have TeachForIndia Fellows as assigned Class teachers for two years.

2. I am running the Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai and Mumbai Full marathons (42 kms) and Bangalore Blue Mix, Satara, Chennai Trail and Goa River half marathons (21 kms), the Kerala Multi Stage Ultra marathon (200 kms) and 1000 kms cycling around Tamilnadu (Tour of Tamilnadu 2014) to raise funds for the classrooms I support

What is the accountability?

1. In the past, I have set up many such fund raising campaigns successfully to support my classroom and others. I promise to 1) keep posting updates here 2) personally update any donor regarding the usage of their funds 3) post pictures and updates from classrooms receiving the funds 4) post final accountability report as a PDF for all donors to see

Other details to note:

1. Whatever amount you choose to donate, Milaap charges 5% of it + 2.2% card charges.
2. You can also choose to send money via NEFT/RTGS to avoid the 2.2% charges. However, Milaap still takes 5% of your donation + service tax on it to cover admin charges (All fund raising platforms charge this amount and Milaap is one of the lowest I found)
3. I would NOT be able to give you a 80 (G) income tax certificate unfortunately.
