Hello everyone,
We currently work with 1600 students across 17 schools in Ahmedabad. The pandemic has been a big challenge for everyone but it has hit our students the hardest as they mostly come from challenging economic backgrounds. We are trying to figure out food, medicines, and medical support for them already but we need help to figure out their school fees in order to ensure that they don't have to drop out. They mostly study in Affordable Private Schools and those schools have also been badly affected as fees are sometimes their only source of revenue.

Currently we are checking in with each student and prioritizing who needs financial support for fees. We currently have ~50 students who need support but this number is set to rise pretty fast as and when we start talking to more students. The amount raised will be used exclusively for their fees and nothing else. We will not be able to provide 80G certificates for donations. Proof of fee payment will be provided.

We will work with their teachers to ensure that we deposit the amount directly with the school. If you would like to sponsor a child for a whole year - it will cost around Rs 15,000, please email me at apoorv.shah@teachforindia.org and we can discuss it further.

Sharing a few more numbers to give better context:
Average monthly fee : Rs 1000
Year long school cost including books : Rs 15,000
Average pending fees per student : Rs 7000

Please reach out on the email ID provided above in case you need any more details.
