[color=#669900]Gramin Shiksha Kendra (GSK)[/color] is an organization registered in 1995 with the goal of providing education to children around the Ranthambore National Park,. They believe that schools are an extension of the community rather than a mere service provider. Hence community involvement lies at the heart of all of GSK’s interventions.

“So not only are we kind of working with the community as well and having a program run by the community but we really, the founders really wanted something that would address the culture of education in the area. Focus on learning through activity based learning. A learning in in which teachers are mentors and not figures of authority. As sort of a way to really encourage critical thinking and encourage kids to attend school and engage the community in the schools.”
