Kind hearted souls please help me raise $2000 for Citizen Forum Vidya Mandir School, Amritsar, India. This money will help in paying our recently hired computer teacher for one year. 

In May-2014 we very successfully organized an 11 day workshop in partnership with National University of Singapore students. 23 residents of Kent Ridge Hall of National University of Singapore taught students for 11 days from mathematics, computer to arts & healthy living. These students raised money to donate us 10 Dell desktop computers. It has been a huge honour for our school to host them and work along with them. This was one of a kind workshop for any school in Punjab, India.

Now we have this lab set up but without a computer teacher it's of no use. I will share Solomon Heng's thoughts in his exact words on this matter. Solomon was part of the 23 student contingent.  "What if the cure for cancer or a terminal disease is stuck in the head of one of the kids we failed to educate?" If we don't provide even basic computer education which is necessary these days to do even a basic job no matter which department. Then how will we make sure that one of those kids will find cure of cancer.

We have hired the computer teacher and will be paying 10,000 Rupees per month equivalent to $170. She has been kind enough to also help our kids in spoken English. So friends please help us to raise this money as it's not much. All we need is 20-40 people donationg from $50 - 100 one time and our goal will be achieved.
