    Story

    SUMMARY

    The vision of this trust is to have a positive impact on the development of students of schools like ‘Govt. SS School Kehnwal ‘ and others in the small Himalayan Town called Mandi in Himachal Pradesh in India. The trust aims to support students by guiding and inspiring them to grow into responsible citizens, who are capable and willing to give back to the society.

    BACKGROUND

    The DN Guleria student development trust was established in 2015 to support the development of students of the schools in Himalayas region in Himachal Pradesh, India like Govt. Senior Secondary School Kehnwal (GSSS-K). This trust is named in honour of my late father Shri D.N.Guleria who spent his life supporting the less privileged, and has always inspired me to give back to community by helping others. GSSS-K is special to me as this is where my education began and I attended for many years before embarking on my journey to gain higher education in various states in India and then onto the UK.

    I have come to know recently that the students of this school are not doing well and require support. Unfortunately the number of students has fallen from approximately 600 (when I was student there) to 60, as a majority of the parents are looking for alternative schools even if the alternative options for their children means a difficult commute to and from school every day.

    I along with the help of the local community want to support Govt. Senior Secondary School Kehnwal (GSSS-K) to inspire their students through various initiatives. One of the first initiatives is to start a scholarship scheme. The scheme has following three main categories where achievements are recognised and rewarded.

    1. academic,
    2. sports and
    3. IRDP (Integrated Rural Development Programme- for those students who come from families which are below the poverty line)
