Mr. Qurbani from Brooklyn NY is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

For the LOVE of Sports

Help me give my students 20 badminton racquets as the students greatly enjoy the sport, but have difficulty playing due to the lack of equipment.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

We have very little physical education supplies to provide our future youth opportunities to enjoy different kinds of physical fitness activities.

Because of limited budgets, we rely on procuring equipment through outside funding. Therefore, a day in my classroom will find me searching for supplies to educate the students.

My students come from war-torn countries and are a very diverse population trying to adjust to there new community. They are amazing students that are ready and eager to learn different physical activities. They are also surrounded by a loving staff who do their best to not only teach each and every student but also to provide any additional support necessary to help each child achieve their personal goals.

My Project

The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students already have a "home." In other words, the students have a connection with the sport of badminton as they would play the sport in their country. It's never easy moving to another place, let alone moving to another country. The students and their families had no choice but to leave everything behind because of the situation in their respected countries.

The sport of badminton brings back memories for our students of what they had back home.

Our badminton equipment that we have currently isn't enough for our student population. A few of them are also not in the best of shape. I would like to get a few more badminton rackets so the students can enjoy this beautiful sport. I am also asking to receive two soccer nets as soccer is another sport that hits home for the students.
