My story

[p][b][u]"Many Drops can make an Ocean"[/u][/b][/p][p]Since childhood I always felt a strong desire to help others. Thus, as soon as graduated I left my little Italian village to pursue my dream of a [b]fairer world[/b]. In 2007 I arrived in Mumbai for one year of voluntary work and never left India. [/p][p][b]Since 2014[/b] I am the proud [b]Executive Director[/b] of the [b]NGO [/b][url=https://www.facebook.com/realitygives/][b]Reality Gives[/b][/url]. My team and I believe that where you start in life should not determine where you finish. By providing [b]quality education[/b] to over [b]1000[/b] [b]children[/b] and [b]youth[/b] from [b]urban slums[/b] we aim to equip them with the tools they need to achieve their potential and break free from the cycle of poverty. [/p][p]We work in challenging conditions and with limited resources, but we do it with the highest level of professionalism, transparency and care possible. [b]My NGO[/b] is [b]my passion[/b] and to see first-hand how our children and youth are eager to learn and thrive their future - regardless being from a slum - make me even more responsible towards ensuring they get what they deserve! [/p][p]In order to continue running our School and Youth Programs I need to raise vital [b]50,000 GBP[/b] by [b]31st March [/b]2020 (59,000 Euro/45,000 USD). [/p][p]I believe "many drops can make an ocean". Any donation small or big could make a huge impact on the work I truly want to continue doing with Reality Gives! Please do help as you can : ) [/p][p][b]Our Programs [/b][/p][p][u]School Program (Dharavi)[/u][/p][p]Lack of quality schooling options for children in urban slums is a key issue to address. Since 2013 we partnered with a low-income school in Dharavi, one of Asia’s largest slum. We provide [b]English medium[/b], [b]holistic education [/b](based on global best practices) to [b]440 [/b]students [b]Nursery[/b]to [b]Grade 4 [/b](age 3 to10). [b]Experiential learning[/b], [b]low student-teacher ratio [/b]and [b]development of teachers [/b]are at the core of our strategy at the school to ensure our children become independent learners and can choose their life path.[/p][p][u]Our Youth Program (Dharavi [/u][/p][p]In slums youth have [b]less access [/b]to [b]quality education [/b]as children and face a skill gap to access opportunities as adults. We provide [b]English Classes[/b], [b]Computer Classes [/b]and [b]Special Activities [/b](i.e. Group Discussion, Movie Screening, Workshops by Sector Experts) to [b]16+ [/b]year old school and college [b]dropouts[/b], [b]students[/b], [b]homemakers[/b]and [b]workers [/b]to support them in their development journey. [/p][p][b]Your Donation[/b][/p][p]Many drops make the ocean. Any donation small or big will help us covering the many expenses we have to run our programs, particularly our teachers' salaries.
