This month, I conducted my first formal fundraiser for Gyaan Ghar. I made a fifteen-minute presentation at Town Meeting on the 8th of May, during which I discussed the state of primary education and explained the goals of Gyaan Ghar. The following Monday, Flint Hill School allowed me to hold a free dress day, on which students did not have to wear uniform if they paid five dollars. Many classmates and teachers participated and made generous donations, earning a total of more than 2,500 dollars. This is about half of what is required to run the learning center for a year. I am now in the process of brainstorming other potential fundraising initiatives to be conducted at Flint Hill and in the area next year.
