For just as little as $15 (£10.00) you can buy a child their school uniform. We would like to use “The $15 buy me a uniform campaign’ to enable us to eliminate the cost of uniforms for all 230 of our children’s parents. You can buy one uniform or if you have some spare funds you can buy 10! Just know that whatever you contribute will put a smile on a child’s face and lighten the financial burden for their parents, allowing the school to invest more in educational resources.
Your $15 buys a child a full uniform. For girls this includes; a tunic or a skirt, a shirt, socks, a belt and a tie. For boys this includes; half pants or full pants, a shirt, socks, a belt and a tie. For $5 more you could also buy a student some new shoes and an extra pair of socks!
The Garhwal English Medium School is a not for profit charitable school. We opened our school in response to the poor quality of education in our area. Children were passing out of high school with a 33% average. They were ill equipped to compete with their better educated city counterparts for higher education and jobs. Boys are only able to secure low paying labour jobs, and girls can only hope for a good marriage. We aim to change all of this by providing quality education to our children so they will have more skills and more choices when they graduate. We began in 2009 with just 14 children and have grown to include more than 230. All of our children are poor and require financial assistance.
