Why am I fundraising?
In 2015, we started a small after-school learning center, a space in the community for our former students at CB Road, Korukkupet, in North Chennai. These are children who we taught at a local govt school, as a part of our Teach for India fellowship. We wanted to extend our support beyond the 2 year fellowship, and so it began.
The learning center help these students during after-school hours - learning and play.
access to books/library
activities for building literacy skills
exposure to art, music, dance, films to build life skills, values and spread a little joy.
We currently work with a small group of children, two 4th grade classrooms. We hope to support them through middle school and high school.
What do I plan to do with the funds?
The funds go towards operational expenses for the next 6 months - rent, electricity, water, snacks, stationary, supplies, transportation, field trips.https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10152600947331262&type=1&l=a932aa3aef
