We are the World Blogfest (#WATWB) focuses on positive stories no matter where they’re found. It is all about spreading peace and humanity on social media.
In the spirit of WATWB, In darkness be the light, today I share the story of Project WHY’s teachers.
“Each teacher takes care of 45 to 50 children in a day, that is 50 lives, 50 dreams, 50 futures. And they do it year after year, then over 10 years each teacher teaches and mentors 500 kids. So by adopting one teacher, you are making a difference in the lives of hundreds of children.The average cost of a Project Why teacher is 10, 000 rupees a month (145$ or 130 euros). That is all it takes. We urge you to adopt a teacher as an individual, or a group of friends.If a few people get together to commit to giving a little each month, you can easily fund a teacher. You will receive updates on the teacher, on the children they teach, and the difference you’ll be making in these precious lives.It is possible to make tax-deductible donations from the USA and France, and you can also contribute from the UK, and other countries.
Adopt a teacher, and change many lives. Help us help these teachers and children, and keep alive our dream of education for all.”
My debut literary crime novel,”You Beneath Your Skin,” published by the fab team at Simon and Schuster IN is slowly making its way into the world. It is available in India here. Worldwide, here. All my proceeds go to Project WHY and Stop Acid Attacks.
What positive stories have you come across of those making a difference through their work? Have you met teachers who do their work exceptionally well? Would you like to help out these teachers from Project WHY?
This post was the latest installment of the monthly We Are the World Blogfest: I’d like to invite you to join, if you haven’t as yet, to post the last Friday of each month a snippet of positive news that shows our essential, beautiful humanity.
