We conduct summer tennis camps across Chicago suburbs to raise funds for our mission. With the help and enthusiasm of our volunteers, we successfully were able to raise awareness in our communities.
We have ongoing book clubs for young students. This helps kids understand the importance of books and provides opportunities for students to present, debate, discuss, and write their creative ideas.
Our community is full of people who want to help. We worked with Chicagoland Charity Organization to run a food drive for the homeless shelters in Chicago. We love working with other organizations in our area.
A few years ago, when my family and I were visiting back home in India, we went to a local government high school. It was during the summertime and there were no students, so we were able to get a nice tour and look around. I was looking around the many classrooms and closets, and was astounded to see only academic textbooks. I wondered to myself how any child could imagine and learn without novels and creative literature.
In the US, libraries are found in every city and school. I used to take this for granted. When going to the library every single day to explore new worlds and meet new characters, I never thought that fellow students around the world weren't getting these opportunities. I still wonder to this day how kids are able to stay in school without the creative freedom of "fun" reading.
So, I made it a personal mission to spread my love of reading to the world. After running book clubs and tennis camps for a little bit, I was able to gather enough donations to build my first library. With the help of my advisors and local schoolteachers, we got the library built, and students spend hours, exploring a whole new side of education.
