This page is your gateway to help a under resourced Teacher (myself) bring life changing resources to a class of low income, high need children in a classroom in Dharavi, Mumbai. Please do write to me if you'd like to know more -

Some background: I am doing the Teach For India fellowship, whereby, I teach FULL TIME for 2 years in a Municipal school.

You can see some pictures from my classroom here -

My promise -

1. Total accountability in reporting how your contribution was spent (Bills, project updates, Photos and videos and anything else you ask from me. You can DEMAND transparency and you ll get it) 2. I ll work relentlessly on maximising returns (in terms of changes in the life of my children) for your contribution - how the money can bring a lot of change.

3. Help you (through Teach For India and Give India) with any 80G receipts or paperwork if needed

What will I use your contribution for?

1. Buying a projector for my Responsible Champions AND the entire school

2. Buying workbooks for 40 children (English, Math, Science, EVS)

3. Taking 40 children on field trips (For eg to Nehru planetarium, airport, libraries, museums, colleges and other places). Every day-long bus trip costs Rs 4000 for 40 children and this is where your contribution can help

4. Buying furniture for my classroom and other classes in my school. I have not had a teacher's table or chair since the last one year. And I never sit in my class. Teach For India will receive your donation quickly and effortlessly. You will receive tax benefits for your deduction in India.

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.

Thank you
