Why am I fundraising?

Hey !!

I teach a bunch of inquisitive and enthusiastic 4th grade children at a Kannada medium low income school. I am fundraising to provide these children with equal opportunities, to open their eyes to the wonderful world that is awaiting them . To make them realize the joy of education. 

Most of the children that come are from underprivileged background and their parents struggle to provide them with all the amenities.

I also want to provide them with a well rounded education, one that involves a good dose of extracurricular activites (sports ). I also want to provide them with a hygenic environment, especially cleaner toilets and clean drinking water.

My journey and impact.

Everyday is an exciting adventure with my family of 27 children. I strive to not only make them academically strong but also to make them better human beings. Ones who are compassionate and thoughtful.
Being a Kannada medium school it is a challenge to teach them in English , but when i see a few of my kids already beginning to communicate with me and even other children in English, it is indeed a joyful sight.
I want to imbibe values such as honesty, love, kindness and respect in my students. I want them to also learn the real life applications of all the skills they learn at school . I want to provide my children with a well rounded education.

What do I plan to do with the funds?

I would love to build a classroom that is print rich , one that gets the children excited about learning.
I would like to 

1.Build a mini- library , so that children can build their habit of reading, and get accustomed to the english language.

2. Provide clean filtered drinking water to the children.
3. Build cleaner and more hygenic toilets.
4. Provide sports equipment , so we can have active extracurricular activities.
5. Buy books and files for the children.
6. Buy cupboard,charts,whiteboard, whiteboard markers.
7. Get worksheets (for entire year including printing,photocopying and reusing.
