About Gursidak Foundation
Gursidak Foundation is a registered NGO under companies act 2013 (Section 8 License Number 122619). This foundation provides free tuition classes to the needy students and the financial support to the students who can’t pursue their higher education due to weak financial condition of the family. We dream of a society where every child gets quality education, every youth an opportunity to succeed, and achieve economic and social independence.
Education is both the means as well as the end to a better life: the means because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one’s awareness on a range of issues – from healthcare to appropriate social behaviour to understanding one’s rights – and in the process help him/her evolve as a better citizen.
Doubtless, education is the most powerful catalyst for social transformation. But child education cannot be done in isolation. A child will go to school only if the family, particularly the mother, is assured of healthcare and empowered. Moreover, when an elder sibling is relevantly skilled to be employable and begins earning, the journey of empowerment continues beyond the present generation.
Following a lifecycle approach, Gursidak Foundation, among the top NGOs in Punjab, works intensively through focused welfare projects in four major areas – child education for poor children, healthcare for families, skills training and livelihood for youth, and community engagement through women empowerment.
To support indigent students to develop skills, knowledge and understanding to succeed at all stages of their education.
