Over 10,000 volunteers sign up to teach India campaign 
Perhaps 42 million Indian children of primary-school age do not attend school. The UNV-supported Times of India 'Teach India' campaign aims to redress the issue. (Times of India).
The idea of Teach India has struck an instant chord, with more than 10,000 people signing up to pledge at least two hours a week to teach a child in their neighbourhood, mostly for weekend sessions. This army of volunteers is a multi-lingual, multi-talented one drawn from diverse streams - doctors, lawyers, company executives, educationists, actors, businessmen, housewives, writers, artists, retired folk, government employees and, most hearteningly, college students.  Visit site
