Why am I fundraising?

Divya Sakalle Katyayani – A teachforindia fellow (2015-2017)

I am a post grad in Human Resource from Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies. I have 7.5 years of working in the corporate world as a HR professional. I was reading about teach for India and learnt that my values and mindsets really match to the vision of this splendid organization. After joining TFI, I came to know deeper meaning of their vision and just kept falling in love with the work I do every day.

What we are?

Academic Growth: Our literacy growth = 0.7 grade level in 1st unit test itself. We aim to achieve 1.5 grade level growth in the mid – year itself. Even our math scores have grown by 20%.

  • Extra-Curricular: Our class name is “The Adventurers” Oh! The places we will go.... And we try to keep up to this theme of ours. We have participated in many extracurricular activities and won awards:

  • Five students from our class have passed the scholarship exams.

  • Essay writing inter-school Competition – 1st prize and 2nd prize.

  • Elocution inter-school Competition – 3rd prize.

  • Craft inter-school Competition – 1st prize.

  • We have enrolled with LOL (League of Learners) which is an yearly competition for Literacy and Math and are looking forward to learn something new from this. We hope to win :)

  • We participated in “Khula Asman” workshop in Mankhurd, where we learnt how to make clay Ganesha and why making clay Ganesha is important.

  • We participated in “Pomegranate Workshop” in National Gallery of Modern Art, Churchgate, where we saw many paintings and learnt many things about different types of paintings and learnt how to make an imaginary painting through collage making technique.

  • We went with didi to attend dance and oil painting workshop in Bandra and learnt qualities like respect, compassion and team work.

  • All the students in our class are acting in a play “The Boy and the Drum” a book provided by Pratham NGO and will be soon performing it in front of the whole school.

  • We have also enrolled for Videos for Knowledge programme, where, we learn new values like, Grit, Zest, etc. We have learnt about many famous personalities, like, Nelson Mandela, Margeret Thatcher, Malala, PT Usha, APJ Abdul Kalam, Hillary Clinton, Sania Mirza, and Leander Peas.

  • We are also preparing ourselves for “Just for Kicks” programme.

  • We will soon be learning photography, chess.
