I am Ishita, a 2020 Teach For India fellow teaching 8th graders in an under-resourced school in Ahmedabad. Most of my students' parents work at factories or have a small businesses.
One of my students, Karunya's family, is facing a financial crisis and cannot pay school fees. Karunya Surwade is highly invested in learning and is hard working. The current situation might result in him dropping out of the system if not supported. His pending school fees sum up to 10,800 rupees. We plan to raise additional funds to support his admission process and stationery supplies as he transits to Class 9 in the next few months. The parents and I have sorted out the other future expenses of Karunya's education. However, this amount is becoming an obstacle for Karunya's education.
It would be great to support Karunya by paying off his fees.
