Children from poverty stricken families, often without a hope for survival, were taken in to receive the love and with this they got a chance for their survival and education.After a very modest beginning in one room, two residential buildings could be bought in the course of 16 years time. The children receive an all-round promotion, which aims at their educational growth as well as at the development of their hidden talents to strengthen their extremely low self-confidence.Good Life Centre believes that it is only good education that can make a child self-reliant and we seek to give these little ones a future they deserve where dreams fulfill their destiny.
An education not only provides the stability, name and fame in the society, but it is also a wealth for those who do not have money but have a clever brain and ambitions in mind. “ GLC dedication to education” came into existence in the year 1999, having the motto and with the aspiration to educate the homeless and destitute needy children.
The children are educated through local schools. Our care takers escort the children to school every day. The children are helped in their education by supervising their home study and giving them tuition in the evenings to improve in difficult subjects. In addition special classes and motivating courses are organized before public exams and bridge courses during the holidays for those who are going into SSLC classes and Higher Secondary Classes.
After completing their schooling, those who secure more than 60% marks are sent to +2 class and later for higher education in external institutions, like colleges, universities and professional institutions. The others are sent for vocational training and short term professional course. After completing their graduation or training, the students are given advice and guidance for further employment. GLC helps them go into the world and settle down.
