About the project :

The city of Kota, in Rajasthan, is known all over India for imparting the best coaching and training to the aspiring students who wish to pursue higher education.

But there are thousands of underprivileged children who do not even get the basic primary education. These children are forced to work and earn a living for their families since they cannot afford even the daily basic needs. Even the Government schools in the area are not concerned about the quality of education imparted. Some don’t even have teachers.

I am Vandana Gupta, the founder of Koshish. I always wanted to contribute something worthwhile for those who cannot afford a quality education. Having a rich experience in teaching in schools and coaching classes, I wanted to utilize my skills for the betterment of the society. 

So to begin with, I joined a Govt. school nearby in the month of April 2016 and started going for 2 hours daily. I started teaching class 6th and 7th. The initial response was positive and school principal and other staff supported and encouraged me. The student also responded well. However, due to limitations of timings in the school, some students started coming to my home for some extra classes. They used to study for some time along with other activities like dancing, painting, quiz, etc. 

Soon the word got around and more students from other Govt. Schools and some private schools started also started coming. The number kept on increasing and it became difficult for me to manage it all alone.I requested for volunteers on social media and Koshish was joined by 4-5 teachers who were willing to spend some time with these children after school. 

Now we have a team of around six people. Our focus is not only restricted to studies, we strive for all around development of kids.

The funds raised via this crowdfunding campaign will be utilized to build sports facilities, a library and a computer lab and to buy some music instruments. We also need funds to organize some education tours for these children. 

Until we could manage to pay the expenses for all the facilities we were providing, since the number of kids is increasing it is becoming difficult to manage the expenses without compromising on the quality. 

Please contribute to our campaign so that we can continue doing our work.
