Gopali Youth Welfare Society, an NGO run by the students of Indian Institute Of Technology, Kharagpur, West Bengal aims to empower the rural children by imparting 'quality education' to them. The project is to make the infrastructure for a school upto class XII. We need reserves of the qouted amount to start so that the process runs smooth.
Many families in Gopali area donot have access to quality education due to lack of awareness and opportunity as well as poor economic conditions. We face challenges in convincing children to go school even after providing all of the costs of education. Currently we have our school Jagriti Vidya Mandir up to class V only and we are unable to support the kids henceforth.
The dropout rates would be decreasing and every child in the school would be able to continue their education. We will be having a permanent infrastructure for the school.
The capacity of the school is anticipated to be atleast 500 . After the project we have aim to provide career oriented coachings for the higher classes and ultimately get them admitted to the premium institutes of India. Awareness among local people would increase and their attitude towards education would change.
