Since its inception, GSS has supported disaster relief projects. We now want to extend our services to a sustainable livelihood project. Under the GSS Upliftment Program, poor children and families in India will receive quality education (for children), higher or vocational training (for young adults), and skill enhancement vocational training (for heads of households) to increase their earning potential. This will result in sustainable livelihoods to liberate them from poverty.
Donations for the GSS Upliftment Program will be forwarded through the GSS Trust (JIT) office into the bank accounts of recipient families via partner organization per established procedure.The child or family’s designation as needy will be verified by GSS partner organizations using pre-established criteria.
The adequacy and duration of the assistance will be certified and recertified by partner organizations. The fees will be paid directly to the school or vocational training center. Other incidental expenses related to education will be paid to families on an as-needed basis, as recommended by the partner organization.
