Support towards the Monthly Stipend of a Fellow, INR 16000

Teach For India recruits the highest-quality university graduates and young professionals, who drive impact on student achievement and become life-long leaders able to effect systemic change. For the 2012 Fellowship, Teach For India received just below 8000 applications and matriculated just above 400 fellows, about 5 percent, of them - those with the most exceptional track records of leadership and demonstrated commitment to the cause. Fellows are placed for two years in full-time teaching positions, with clear accountability for their classrooms, in areas with educational inequality where impact on student achievement will be maximized. An extensive rubric is used to determine which schools are chosen, with emphasis on the need within those schools, and their willingness to partner. They also provide Fellows with rigorous training and professional development. Training begins with an intensive five-week residential course, led by international experts, and continues with weekly trainings and support from mentor teachers, throughout the two years. This donation will be used to support a Fellow's monthly stipend through his/her two years of teaching.

Teach For India
India is facing an education crisis in two parts. Firstly, students are not making it through the system. Secondly, the students in the system are receiving a vastly inadequate education. While wealthy Indian children have access to quality education, their low-income peers continue to lag 2-3 grade levels behind, on average. This was the case at the City of LA School in Mumbai.
In June 2012 Bhuvaneshwari Subramaniam was placed in the 3rd grade of City of LA School. Selected from a pool of qualified applicants with an exceptional track record, like all Fellows she underwent 5 weeks of rigorous training and professional development before being placed in the school where she will teach for 2 years.
In her efforts towards ensuring that her students reach the goals set for them, she will receive continuous trainings and support.
