Who we are
Teach for India, a non-profit organisation founded by Shaheen Mistri attempts to address education in the country. The organisation runs several programmes, all directed towards providing learning opportunities to those students who are deprived of quality education. Programmes like Teach to Lead, the Volunteer Programme, TAP Project and the Fellowship Programme are curated to help us in our mission. The Fellowship programme entails having different individuals appointed as Fellows, to teach low-income government and private schools in India with the intention of providing them with a holistic education.
Our work and its impact
As a Teach for India Fellow, we teach low-income government and private schools, where we work with the students on the prescribed syllabus while simultaneously working on their reading and arithmetic skills. Students are exposed to a value and skills-based pedagogy, that enables them to develop leadership skills and participate in opportunities provided to them within and outside the organisation. We believe that all children must attain an excellent education, that extends far beyond the conventional sense of the term. In the hopes of doing so, we establish strong relationships with our stakeholders (students, parents, school teachers, and the community).
How we will utilise these books
The funds from our campaign will be used to get storybooks to build a reading culture in the classroom space. The books will not only improve students’ literacy, but will also give them windows to new worlds. Reading will encourage them to dream big, be imaginative, and creative and develop problem-solving skills. The books will be a part of the reading intervention in the form of a classroom library.
