Gram Sewa Sangh is improving the livelihoods of slum and village children along with their families. We are implementing programs focused on providing education to the children and empowering youths and women living in slum and village areas. For that we are designing models which we were using to plan and implement projects. Our models are strategies which we are using to plan and implement our projects with a large positive impact.
Our approach consists of essential elements of sustainable development- growth (productivity), social justice (equality) and conservation (sustainability) together; make it comprehensive and people centric. Involving the community in the planning and decision making of programs strengthen the relationship between NGOs, the communities and projects. We focus on child friendly learning environments. Our project targets disadvantaged children and adults from poor and rural areas.
