WE NEED YOUR HELP TO GIVE THIS SCHOOL A STUDENT-FRIENDLY CENTRE OF LEARNING.
The infrastructure of a school plays a vital role in the overall wellbeing of its students. The inadequacy of classrooms at the Government High School located at Kelambakkam has led to the children being taught under trees or crammed into a single room. According to a study; a poor learning environment is detrimental to students which leads to increased absenteeism and sickness, reduced morale, reduced productivity and low test scores.
The mission is to provide the 100 students at Government School, Kelambakkam with a smart classroom. A well-equipped classroom can define the structure and practices of classroom teaching that directs attention, organizes information, encourages activity and concentration. The cost of this undertaking is 17 Lacs, and the positive waves of this smart classroom will ripple through the community of Kelambakkam for years to come.
My campaign aims to raise INR 8000 or more. If more is raised then we will be able to help the school with their other infrastructure needs.
1. To render quality education through the creation of a student-friendly learning space which will directly have a positive impact on the academic achievements of students.
2. To enroll more students in Government School and reduce the dropout rate.
3. To positively affect teachers in classrooms that are comfortable with a pleasing atmosphere conducive to teaching and learning.
ABOUT ME & THIS CAMPAIGN:
My name is Dr SANDHIYA. I am an assistant professor of English at HCAS.
I am doing this campaign to transform the lives of children from underprivileged homes who go to a GOVT SCHOOL that is located near my college. This school is located at Kelambakkam.
The main problem affecting the children of the Govt. Higher Secondary School, Kelambakkam is the lack of classrooms. This lack of infrastructure means students study under trees or are crammed into a class. This becomes a serious issue during monsoon & the hot summer months. Absenteeism and lack of interest in studies are the end result.
The classroom that we want to build is a smart multi-purpose classroom. It has a projection system, good quality chairs and desks, smartboards, computers, and even air-conditioning for the hot summer months.
I have taken this campaign as I believe that by ensuring good education standards in the school, the whole community will be positively impacted. I hope that with your support, I will be able to change the lives of the students and residents in Kelambakkam.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
