We are from a government school in bangalore. Just a month ago we moved from kannada medium to english medium classroom and we love it. We love reading books. So help us get as many english books as possible so we read more, gain exposure and quickly escalate on the reading levels. You can directly impact more than 300 kids !
I am a fellow working with Teach for india, an orgaanistaion that is committed towards educational equity. This is the first year of intervention in bangalore.
I teach grade 4 in Channasandra Govt School,Bangalore. Learning has been the rote method for most schools , which ultimately makes them ill equipped for jobs, in the future as they dont have the knowledge or skill to implement their learnings. Our focus when in teaching is a holistic one where in we not just guide them in content but also bring out a leader in them. We also prioritize on stakeholders like parent, teachers,community involvement in the kids education as we believe each of these stakeholders have a major impact on the kid's education. We strive for positive relationships with each of the above stake holders and get them invested. In the second year fellowship , as part of the Be The Change Project, we push the impact from classrooms/school to community and beyond.
As fellows of teach for india, we aim to set up a library in classrooms.Even though our school houses the Public library, there aren any visitors at any given point of the day. Through these books, we aim to build a movement of thoughtful readers who will spread the importance of reading not just in school but also in their community. So through the funds raised, we aim to orgainise/build a public library that will be relevant for the community.
