I might not be teaching in a school now but I will always be a passionate teacher by heart.
Mithu lost his legs to Polio as a kid. He was a student at Project Why Okhla Centre which runs after-school support for 350 children from the nearby underprivileged communities. This centre was established 14 years ago, at the site of a dustbin.
Though Mithu was never interested in formal education, he developed a liking for computers. Today Mithu teaches computers to the children at the centre. He is very passionate about making difference in the lives of these children. This is a way of giving back to the school which made him self-reliant in spite of the physical disability.
After learning about Mithu, I wanted to support the cause of saving the Project Why Okhla Centre.
Yes, the centre which is making learning possible for children since years is about to lose its funding and might shut down.
The Okhla Centre has many other heroes like Mithu, who have been working relentlessly for years to provide learning opportunities to children.
