Our story

I am planning to make a library which will be operated by my school kids. From record keeping to subscribing books to reading, everything will be done by kids. The kids in my school come from a lower income community. They are very enthusiastic to learn new things but because of limited exposure to books and reading, somewhere I think they have been refrained from the potential and achievement which they can attain.

Who we are

I am working as a fellow with Teach For India Ahmedabad. With a vision to provide excellent education to all children we teach in underprivileged schools across 7 cities in country. I teach in one such schools in Ahmedabad. I teach 87 6th graders , each having high hopes and vision to be life long learner. Keeping this in mind I thought of creating a classroom library with books from Indian context and puzzles.

Our work and its impact

Being a teacher of 6th grader,87 kids from a lower income community,where many of my kids are 1st generation learners whose both parents struggle to make their ends meet, I want to apprise them on their strengths, empower them and give them the wings to dream and fly, thus helping their family and themselves live a better life.

How we will utilize these funds

The fund will be utilized for collecting different genre books for children led library project where each child during library period will subscribe to 1 book every month thus increasing their literature skills, reading skills,comprehension skills, thus giving an exposure and knowledge in a broad area.
