I have signed up to volunteer in India for 3 weeks in November to teach children English with PMGY.
PMGY supports a number of slum schools located around
Faridabad. These NGOs provide free education, school
supplies, food and uniforms in order to encourage
parents to let their children go to school, rather than
being forced to wander the streets begging and
collecting rubbish to earn money. The children at the schools range from 3 right up to
the age of 16.
I have already covered the cost of signing up to the project and the cost of signing up for a TEFL (Teach English as Foreign Language) qualification, but I would like to raise money to cover the cost of things like the application fee, visa, CRB check, et. Also if I am able I would like to pledge any money raised over the target to the PMGY Eco Schools.
