What Project Would A Laptop Help You With?
The teaching standards leave much to be desired in the local public schools which leads to the children losing interest in education. So I’ve taken to tutoring the local kids to help kindle their interest in learning.
How would a laptop help you?
At present I manage our family hotel with specializes in South-Indian foods from 6 to 9, then I leave for night college. I also tutor kids in my community who attend the local public school. I am very passionate about computers so I try to learn as much as I possibly can. But what I can do for myself and for my people is limited without a laptop.
What do you love about this project?
I love interacting with children and seeing the joy that learning new things brings them.
What Languages do you speak?
Hindi, English, Tamil, Telegu, and Bangla.
