Our Activities
Gouri Sevapeeth has been continuously implementing, it's various programmes for socio-economic development in its area of operation.
 
 

Literacy
Spreading literacy through non-formal centres: Dhapa-14, 57, 55, 58, nos. ward of Kolkata Corporation. Has a dubious record of having lowest literacy level in whole of West Bengal. The worst sufferers are the women who due to illiteracy and ignorance face exploitation at all Levels. Gouri Sevapeeth ran non-formal centres in many villages for women and girls under different projects. People provided free space for running the centres. The method of teaching was non-formal involving local dialect (Bengali), which helps the women learn effectively. In these centres functioned in the afternoon after women finish their household work and some in the evening when they return from their fields. An attendance register was maintained duly signed by the teacher and project co-coordinator who regularly monitored centres. Side by side they were given information on health and hygiene and after relevant issues.
 
 

Education Initiatives
Gouri Sevapeeth believes that education is true means of socio-economic and intellectual advancement of the society. Every child at least deserves primary education in irrespective of case, religion, or socio-economic background. G.S.P. aims at developing full mental and physical potential of each child. The school has introduced contemporary education and training methods. For this purpose an innovative approach involving a mix of class room teaching with audio- visual aids along with physical and extra-curricular activities have been introduced. The school provides an exclusive ambience for the all round development of the child's personality including aesthetic and moral values, emotional integration and communication skills. Today G.S.P can boast of a well stocked library with wide range of books for the various readers. G.S.P also provides free ships and sponsorships to poor and needy students studying in the school. We have introduced fee concession to deserving students by way of subsidized tuition fee for different income groups. There is a special concession among them.
 

Education Assistance

An Integrated Approach to Women Empowerment
Women have always been marginalized and regretted, to the status of subjected class in the society. Due to lack of specific implementation of plans, local communities especially women have remained outside the scope and benefits of governments and programmes. The key lies in women empowerment through economic self-sufficiency and higher awareness levels on social, political and legal issues through mobilization. With this objective the project was implemented in Kolkata District covering towards. We follow an integrated approach in the intervention area where our aim was to encourage young children, adolescent girls to enroll for non-formal education and motivate women to go for function literacy. The methodology, followed was setting up the non-formal Education / Literacy Centres in 10 villagers. As part of the strategy the NEF centre teachers were given regular trainings and orientations so that they can interact with the children and adult learners alike. The women were encouraged to attend meetings where health workers discussed their health problems. Gouri Sevapeeth also organized health camps in the intervention area. The doctors were invited from several hospitals. They raw many patients including girls and women and gave medicines. They also gave information about sanitation and hygiene to the community basic education to young children who accompanied their mothers and were not enrolled for National open School Examination.

About 100 girls and 25 boys were enrolled in different villages. We conducted their examination in March 2011 and result was submitted to NIOS for certificate.
