Our story

We are a class of 33 ten year olds studying in a government school in Chennai. English is a new skill we are developing and we would like books for our classroom library that cater to our reading levels. Help us expand our curious minds with books and a love for reading.

Who we are

I am Ronita Rayan, a Teach for India fellow, teaching 33 beautiful minds of fifth graders at CPS Jones road, Saidapet, Chennai.

Our work and its impact

I work with 33 beautiful minds, who are currently in the 5th grade. Most of them come from families who struggle for their daily income. I believe that every child has the ability and the curiosity to learn, only lacks the means or opportunities for the same. Through working with these children in the class on a daily basis, for two years, we hope to bridge the gap between a child who goes to a government school and a child who goes to a private school who may have access to more opportunities.

How we will utilize these funds

The collected funds will be utilized to buy books for our classroom library. Books at different reading levels will cater to all our children and in turn develop the love for reading in every child.
