Mr. Verma from Brooklyn NY is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Clean Classroom Is a Happy Classroom!

My students need tissues, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and disinfectant spray.

My Students

My students are fantastic, enthusiastic, wonderful, and pleasant second graders! The enthusiasm for education starts at a young age, which is why we must all assist in creating, preserving, and prolonging that zeal.

Despite my students’ strong and sincere zeal for learning, they are daily victims of systemic challenges pertaining to finance, race, and other extraneous variables.

I teach in an ICT classroom, which means many of my students are exceptional learners! Our neighborhood in Brooklyn is one of the most economically devastated towns in New York, with almost all of its citizens living below the poverty line (an income of about $20,000 a year for a family of four). Over 75% of my students live in poverty. Many students live in homeless shelters and in temporary housing. As a result, my students' school is a Title I school (according to the United States Department of Education) because of "high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families." In essence, my students’ unique and highly intelligent minds are not being adequately or equitably educated or bettered due to bureaucratic reasons beyond their or their teachers’ control.

My Project

In order to be in an adequate health condition and ready to learn daily, my students must be and feel clean each and every day, which is why I am requesting an abundance of cleaning products for our classroom community. Disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant sprays are very important to keep a classroom clean. Furthermore, tissues are important to aide in abating any illnesses that could worsen thereby disrupting my students' well-deserved education.

Essentially, my students will be able to come into school clean and ready to learn, after we receive funding from this project!

Once health and hygiene are no longer barriers, their minds and bodies will be solely focused on learning! My students and I thank you in advance for your selfless donations.
