Education of Students
GSES identifies students from poor families who due to adverse circumstances are unable to provide or continue the education of their children. These students are indentified, presently, from poor localities mainly in Amritsar district or neighbouring areas.
The identified families are assessed for their annual income, living conditions, children school academic record (if already in school) and other laid down criteria’s to term the family as “Distressed” and listed for financial help in the form of taking responsibility of their children’s education. In many cases where GSES feels the family is in real distress, it pays for the school books and stationery, uniform and transportation for their children also.
Then GSES endeavours to find sponsors for the children and facilitates linking sponsors with individual children. GSES follows through by disbursing and monitoring the sponsors' funds.
The progress reports of the children are provided to the sponsor. We encourage building a strong sponsor-child communication. The sponsor has the opportunity to become a mentor and friend to his sponsored child by communicating with them regularly. The sponsor can also arrange a visit with his child through GSES.
