    This fundraiser will benefit

    provide education to the children of GEMS

    from Mussoorie, Uttarakhand

Dear Friends, the Garhwal English Medium School has been running since 2009 and providing much-needed quality education to the children from about 25 villages in our area. We have 200 students from classes Lkg to Class 8.

As India has been hit hard with the second wave of Covid, we are in semi lock-down and have no means to earn any income to support our school. Until we are able to come up with a strategy to generate income, we need your help.  We need to pay our teachers and staff and maintain our monthly bus payments. 

The funds will be used to cover our interim costs of running our school over the next few months.  This year,  our teachers and staff have been working at half wage and we need to return their wages to the normal rate.  We also need to cover our bank payments for our school bus.  Wages amount to approximately 1,00,000/mth and the bus payment is 30,000/mth. We have begun taking a nominal fee of 200 RSVP from parents who can manage to pay,  but this amounts to just 20-25,000/mth. So this campaign will help us through the next two to three months and give us time to either find corporate sponsorship or to come up with new sustainable means to fund the school.
