Our school, Shree Geeta Vidyalaya, is located in Shivaji Nagar, Govandi, one of the most difficult slum communities in Mumbai, notorious for its extreme levels of violence, poverty and lack of sanitation.
Starting with grades 2 and 3 in 2009, we have been teaching around 250 students in this school as Teach for India fellows. This academic year 2017-18, we come to the conclusion of what's been 9 years of a wonderful experience, as our last batch of students prepares to take the 10th grade SSC board exams.
With a collective experience of 12 years of teaching, we, as teachers and coaches, are trying to provide these students with an excellent quality of education, to nurture their minds, and to equip them with skills not just for college, but for life.
To achieve the above, we are approaching you for support, in the form of monetary donations, of an amount of your choice. Your contribution towards our funds, will be used for:
- Purchasing electronic equipment like screens, speakers and projectors.
- Setting up a quality Science Lab for the school
- Procuring resources and materials for performing experiments and projects in Science and Math.
- Buying classroom supplies, and printing materials for teachers and students.
All children deserve access to quality education. Despite being born into difficult circumstances, our students persevere through multiple problems everyday to come to school and push themselves to be a better version of their self. Your contribution will help us create a learning environment that they deserve. You, can help them refine their dreams and achieve them in the years to come.
