Story

We are three Teach for India Fellows teaching 41 adolescent girls of Grade 9 in Rani Chennamma Sarvoday Kanya Vidyalaya, located in an under-resourced community of Jahangirpuri, Delhi. 

Last year we raised approximately 55,000 to support our girls and their families with data recharges, distributed tabs to 35 girls for online learning and provided support for medical needs to help them continue their education in such challenging times. 

As we were recovering the 2nd wave came in and made the situation even worse for us. Post second wave of Covid-19, these girls and their families are struggling to fulfill the basic needs like ration, health and medicines and we have exhausted all our resources to support them. It has also resulted in poor nutrition, low finances and high debts. Considering these struggles, it has become almost impossible for the students to arrange books, stationary and attend online classes. According to the data collected from the classroom, out of 41 families :
  • 23 are struggling with unemployment
  • 10 have no access to devices to attend online classes
  • 10 families are struggling to avail basic medic attention (treatment and/or medicines).
All this has lead to only 10 out of 41 students attending more than 50% classes regularly.

We need an amount of 2.5 lacs to support these families for this academic year and ensure that each and every girl is able to continue her education in these challenging times. The funds donated shall be utilized for :
  • Fulfilling physiological needs such as ration, medicines, treatment etc. 
  • Helping them avail books, stationary and other academic material
  • Data recharges
  • Device maintenance and repair
  • Renting a community center to provide 24x7 offline academic access to all students 
We request you to support our students by donating to this cause which shall help them fulfill their basic needs, and bridge the physiological and educational gap that this pandemic has created for them and their families.
