Frontline Dispatches: Fiona from TFI

Fiona Vaz, who has previously written a guest post for us, sent us this wonderful story that we had to share with you:

The Background: Fiona Vaz, a Teach for India Fellow , inspires students at the school beyond academics. In my fleeting associations with her over the last one year, I found her deeply involved with what she does and very closely connected with the youngsters who come to the school against many odds, to pursue, very simply… a better future. Last May, Fiona visited some high-performance schools for the underprivileged in USA and came back very impressed with the fact that some schools had this unbelievable target of 200 books a year per kid. Finding this truly aspirational, she implemented it in her classroom.

MISSION: 200 Books A Year (365 days)
