    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Teach For India (TFI) provides individuals with an opportunity to serve as full-time teachers to children from low income communities in some of the nation's most under resourced schools. Through this experience of teaching in classrooms and working with key education stakeholders like students, principals and parents, as a volunteer I will be exposed to the grassroots realities of India's education system.

    76% of students do not make it to a higher education system
    17% of teachers are absent from school on any given day
    45% of schools do not have a usable girls toilet

    Education is such an important factor in every child’s upbringing – be it academic, sporting, social or life in general. Having been blessed to be able to have a university education, following two full time working roles since graduation, I now feel a sense of duty to impart what I have learnt from my experiences. I consider myself to be a person full of laughter and extremely fun- loving; these are the two main qualities I would like to incorporate with the academic.

    Please follow me through my updates on my journey in Pune, India where I hope to immerse myself not only in teaching young children but also in ongoing projects at the schools that are in need of investment.

    Any donations are greatly appreciated and will be used towards this worthy movement.

      Last week I was able to purchase new white boards for all three Teach for India classrooms. This is already making such a huge difference to how the kids concentrate in class! Additionally the teachers and I bought several Geography world map puzzles for the kids to put togetger during their Geography lesson!
