36 years ago, Aijaz witnessed that the children of Gayatri Puram were whiling their time away for lack of a school in the neighborhood. He, therefore, utilized his entire savings to provide elementary schooling for these children and established "Gayathri Higher Primary School".
Initially, the school was functioning in a small rented building, driven by the relentless effort to provide what Aijaz considered a very basic need of a prosperous society. Further on, he gradually gathered funds to pay a salary to teachers, purchase benches and other basic supplies, and by taking out several bank loans, he later purchased the site and constructed two classrooms.
The case was fought in the high court and, after 14 years, was finally won. In 2006, the court finally passed orders directing the government to allot the site to the school. Nevertheless, the processing took until 2017, and now, 30 years later, an opportunity has finally occurred to acquire the allotted land, but at present, it is required to pay a hefty amount for it. We are therefore asking for your financial support to obtain the site for the school. The amount required is INR 49,80,000 (excluding registration fees) to obtain possession of this site. With registration fees included, the amount needed is roughly about INR 55,00,000 (USD 80,000).
Children are the ambassadors of our common future and your donation to the cause of providing accessible and quality education to them shall thus be an investment in a better world for all.
Your donation – a seemingly insignificant step for an individual – will help thousands of children make a giant leap: it will directly increase their social prospects and equip them with education, the most valuable personal asset of all. Thirty years of dedication and the future of "Gayathri Higher Primary School" depend upon your decision to participate in this struggle.
Each penny counts to reach the goal, so please donate!
