Help give our boys their rightful chance at a bright future

This is a Tier 1 listed NGO which has met the Credibility Alliance norms for credibility and transparency. Unlike its regular donation options where GiveIndia does a thorough due-diligence, its iGive pages are set up by fundraisers for varied purposes. All donations are used only for education, medical relief, relief of the poor or for preservation of environment. You may contact the the iGive page owner or the NGO to know how your funds were utilized.

I am Nirali Desai, a fellow at Teach for India in Delhi. My co-fellow, Abhishek Tandon, and I teach 84 boys between the ages of 10-15 at Government Boys School who come from a small community called Dakshinpuri. Our boys come from low-income families and live in a community that is often confronted with violence. Their parents are very invested in the idea of providing them the best possible education, but cannot support them academically and financially beyond a certain point. Thus, there is a clear lack of ecosystem that is conducive to learning.
We want to take the fight for education beyond the walls of the school. 
What are our goals:
We currently conduct extra classes, beyond those in school, in a temple, while we are on a look out for a permanent place. This place will serve the purpose of a Community Centre where in the kids can come and explore their interests in a safe environment, read together, participate in book discussions and debates, listen to music, play sports, and learn together.
Being a Sports enthusiast, I want to introduce these kids to organised sports, and to fulfil this, my boys have entered their first tournament, called Khel Khel Mein, which will be conducted at the end of the year. 
We are also looking at buying a Projector for the class, to maximise the learning outcome. 
We want to promote reading for leisure, for which we plan to group read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets with them this year. 
What can you do:
You can help us achieve our goals by donating for the above causes on this page. 
If you can donate second hand Harry Potter books, please write to me at, or call/text/WhatsApp on 9601947846.
GiveIndia will process every donation and provide you with a receipt for the same. Thank you for visiting my iGive page and supporting my cause.
