    This fundraiser will benefit

    50 primary school students

    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu

I am Preethi. I am a fellow at Teach for India and I teach 52 kids in 4th grade at Vanniya Teynampet school. The students usually hail from a ghetto within a 3 km vicinity. From day 1 of my fellowship in 2020, I observed that my students were struggling to adapt to the student-centric classroom. As the days passed, we grew together by (un)learning things while being happy and compassionate. Now we have come a long way, by growing holistically with collaborative efforts to understand ourselves and others. Now the students are exploring their interest-based ambitions and most of their parents work as house helps and daily wages who can't afford the cost of their explorations and curiosity. As my fellowship gets over and the kids are about to leave for their summer holidays and providing them presents based on their interests and passion might help them engage independently in their holidays effectively without involving in the daily pseudo entertainments of the community.
Budget for 1 kid = Rs. 500 and 52 kids = Rs. 26,000 and the presents will be delivered on the last day of their school. Here is the List of Gifts that the students asked for!
