I believe that when you are giving, it should be something useful, not something that you give just for the sake of giving.
When I was in college, I didn’t get a lot of guidance on what to do with my career. What I could be, career options etc. I started from the bottom and worked my way up.
Now it’s personal for me. I like to help and guide students with what they can do with their careers. It makes me proud that I can be a part of their journey.
I thought the funding platform for teachers by Teach A Class was a great initiative and it was also very personal for me. I really wanted to be a part of this project because it was for teachers.
I wasn’t able to get the guidance I needed, but the teachers on the teachaclass.org platform are so motivated.
They really want to make a difference in their students’ lives.
It really touched me and I wanted to do everything I could to help them. It would help teacher guide a student in a much better way. It would improve her classroom and maybe somewhere out there, there’ll be a student like me who would end up being much better guided.
Even if it isn’t possible for someone to contribute monetarily, they could actually just share and connect it with people who can.
Giving is a gift. Let’s start the new year by giving the gift of education.
