Lakshmi Manchu and Chaitanya MRSK founded the organisation in 2014, and since then, it has developed a number of successful programmes, including flagship volunteer programmes, ICT infrastructure, and smart classrooms in government schools.

Speaking on the occasion, Actress Lakshmi Manchu said, “It’s so humbling for us at Teach for Change to reach this stage where we are planning the 8th edition. Education is our fundamental right and no child should be left behind. At Teach for Change we have taken this a step further and strived to achieve effective education that can translate into true empowerment of lives. This fundraiser is a platform that can help bridge their basic educational needs with our willingness to support their cause. I am so grateful to all my industry friends, family and colleagues who have time and again supported this cause for Teach for Change and have come together to support and celebrate.”

Lakshmi is a powerhouse of energy, and anything she touches is always authentic, according to designer Varun Chakkilam. Even though the show only lasts for one evening, its effects last all year long. I was stunned when Lakshmi showed me the plans and projects under Teach for Change. Being a member of something bigger than all of us is incredibly humbling. I’m happy that so many souls’ fates will be altered by my clothing.
