English Education for kids in India

I am starting this GoFundMe to help provide English-based schooling for Children in Chennai, India.  Today, lack of an education is an inaccessible right  for these children, and access to English medium schooling, is a far fetched dream. The current "public" schools do not provide a quality education mainly due to untrained teachers and a terrible deficit in teaching materials. Besides poverty, illeteracy in parents are another huge risk in non-schooling kids.  An English-based education will not only be vital to their intellectual and social development but will also enable them to get appropriate jobs which will ultimately help break the cycle of poverty in their families.  $200 pays for all starter fees, books, supplies and uniforms.  The parents will then pick up the monthly fees. Their income is not sufficient enough for them to handle the start up cost. Please help and give what you can.  There are so many children in need, so any money received in additional to the $4000 asked will go towards the starter fees for additional children.  $4000 will pay for 20 children to begin school.  Below are just a couple of photos of the kids you will be helping. 
Thank you in advance and God bless!
