We are a group of students from Ashoka University — Sachin, Aryan and Sahil — aiming to raise 25,000 INR to purchase a good laptop and accessories (including WiFi dongle and an annual 4G connection) to support the education and growth of 16-year old Ayush Kumar, who lives with his family in Asawarpur just outside our campus.
Sachin Bhatia(UG20): I have known Ayush and his family for many years now. I made acquaintance with him in the garden across our campus, one afternoon during the mid term break when I was exploring a simulation software for physics experiments with the kids who were there. I noticed his curiosity, his investment and from then onwards I began weekly classes with him to assist him in his school work; he was in 10th at that time. He did well in 10th 😊, and I continued assisting him in various capacities and continue to do so. In this time, he was very enthusiastic and determined to get a laptop of his own; he managed to purchase a used aged device with limited functionality from a market in Delhi. Both his parents work in factories in the Rai Industrial Area and Ayush, and his two siblings Deepanshi and Ankit, are doing their best in these circumstances. He has been using his laptop resourcefully and considering the many difficulties with his current device (it has been non-functional for over a week now) we are fundraising to provide him with a good laptop, network and consistent guidance.
30,000 INR has already been raised and we feel a good future proof system would be around 40-45k, and necessary accessories would cost 10k more (accounting for wifi dongle, one year bill for the internet connection, mouse, books for JEE etc.)
